Traveling with your pet? Whether you are traveling internationally or just to another state, we can help. As a USDA-accredited veterinarian, Dr. Atkinson is authorized to issue domestic and international health certificates for pets. Contact us as soon as you make travel plans and make sure share your destination and travel dates with us, as different countries have varying protocols that must be strictly followed to allow your pet to enter without problems. For example, some international destinations require an entry permit for their country, with specific travel dates. Other countries have regulations regarding rabies vaccinations, microchip placement, and blood tests prior to filling out travel papers. Please be aware that certain destinations require an additional signature from the official USDA veterinarian, which can add several days to the process. To ensure smooth travel, frequently check your country’s entry requirements for changes, and discuss your plans with us well in advance.
