Thank you for choosing the Martinez Animal Hospital to assist in fulfilling your pets travel needs.
Health and travel certificates are very detailed and they must be exact which is why we send this information prior to your appointment. Due to the variety of requirements for different airlines, states, and countries, we require you, as the pet owner, to provide us with all necessary information and ALL medical records.
You will need to visit the site https://www.aphis.usda.gov/aphis/pet-travel to inform you of all requirements for your selected destination. For your travels, your pet may be required to have more than one exam, deworming/de-fleaing, microchip placement, rabies titer test, additional rabies vaccines and a re-titer, and more. Some of the consequences the USDA have that may come with errors or misinformation on your certificate/documentation are delays in travel, additional expenses/fee’s, denied entry to destination, canceled flight/travel, prolonged quarantine, and in some instances even euthanasia. We have no control over the USDA’s consequences or fee’s and once the documents are submitted and accepted, they do not make contact with us. This is why it is imperative you provide all information and records to us in a timely manner! If you are not finding the information needed on the website, here is the contact information for the USDA and they will be able to assist you further: https://www.aphis.usda.gov/aphis/ourfocus/animalhealth/endorsement-offices
