TRAVEL HEALTH CERTIFICATES

APPOINTMENT
When traveling with your pet(s), there may be animal health requirements specific to that destination. As soon as you know your travel details, contact your local veterinarian to assist with the pet travel process. For International Travel, the USDA needs a “USDA Accredited Veterinarian” to do the exam on the pets as well as to fill out specific certificates for each country they are traveling to. Dr. Colerg is USDA Accredited for International Health Certificates. Factors to consider may include meeting time frames for obtaining a health certificate, updating vaccinations, diagnostic testing, or administration of medications/ treatments.

It’s important to note that improper or incomplete paperwork for your pet can derail your travel plans, and end up costing you time and money. Greenwich Veterinary Center wants to help simplify traveling with your pet. Let us assist you throughout this process!

Domestic Travel Certificates
Many states require an up-to-date Certificate of Veterinary Inspection from a licensed, accredited veterinarian when traveling. Your pet must be examined by a veterinarian in order for a health certificate to be issued. This certificate indicates that your pet is healthy for travel and that he or she is not showing signs of disease. This certificate is required by most airlines in order for your pet to travel within the continental United States. We strongly recommend contacting your individual airline to understand their specific travel requirements. Oftentimes airlines require that your pet be examined by a veterinarian and a health certificate issued within 10 days of travel. Check with your airline to ensure that your paperwork will be in order.

If necessary we are able to add a certificate of acclimation to your pet’s travel papers. This certificate is written at the discretion of our veterinarians and is based upon our vet’s assessment of your pet’s health allowing him or her to travel above or below certain temperatures.

Compassionate quality care because pets are family, too.
