Whether you're embarking on a short trip or considering a more permanent change of location, traveling with your beloved pet can be a rewarding experience. However, certain journeys, especially those by air or to another country, often come with specific requirements. One such requirement is obtaining an up-to-date Pet Health Certificate, a vital document for ensuring your pet's well-being during the journey.

To obtain a Pet Health Certificate, your pet must meet certain criteria, including being in good health, up-to-date on vaccinations, free from diseases, and free from parasites. At Union Park Animal Hospital And Urgent Care, we proudly offer this essential service to our clients.

To ensure a smooth process, we recommend scheduling an appointment well in advance of your travel date. Our experienced team will guide you through the necessary steps, making it a hassle-free experience for you and your pet.

Additionally, it's important to thoroughly research the specific regulations set by the USDA for your destination country and familiarize yourself with any airline requirements. Many airlines, for instance, require proof of a valid health certificate within a specified timeframe before travel.

By taking these steps and preparing in advance, you can help prevent potential travel delays or disruptions, ensuring a safe and happy journey for both you and your cherished pet.

For more information on Pet Health Certificates or to discuss your travel plans, please don't hesitate to contact Union Park Animal Hospital. We're here to assist you in planning a successful and stress-free trip for you and your furry companion!
