International Pet Travel: Plan Ahead and Take the Right Steps
The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) has launched a new website devoted to international pet travel. Pets are often considered part of the family, but traveling with your pet isn’t as simple as just booking a flight or driving across the border. There may be very specific steps you and your BAH veterinarian need to follow, as well as pet vaccinations, treatments, and/or testing that your veterinarian must document.
Download the USDA / APHIS informational pdf or visit their website for additional information. Your doctor at Bloomingdale Animal Hospital is prepared to assist you and your pet – please call our office at (630) 403-0149 for an appointment.
