Domestic health certificates are easy! We just need your animal’s vaccination information and a quick appointment. Different airlines have different requirements. Check their website for more information. Any animal traveling in cargo needs a health certificate and often a statement of acclimitazation. There can be embargoes on flying animals in the summer when it gets too hot on the tarmac.
International health certificates can be complicated and take up to a week. Please plan ahead! We often have to fill everything out, overnight the actual paperwork to Denver (Sacramento for now!) for the State Veterinarian’s review, signature and stamps. It is then overnighted back to you. They have to dated within 10 days of travel so time can be a crunch. Requirements change all the time as well so please call a few days before you need the appointment so we can make sure we have the latest forms and information.
Hawaii and the UK take months of preparation if you have never done it before. Call for more information.
