Pet Health Certificates

Veterinary Services
Health certificates, sometimes known as travel certificates, are always required for international travel, and many airlines require them for domestic travel.

What is a
Pet Health Certificate

A pet health certificate is an official document that one of our veterinarians will fill out after examining your pet thoroughly. Our health certificate veterinarians are licensed and USDA-approved. The document will contain specific information about your pet, such as breed, age, microchip, etc. It also verifies that your pet is disease-free and identifies all of your pet’s immunizations. Many commercial airlines may require a pet health certificate (one for each pet flying). The time range in which a health certificate must be received varies by airline, so please verify with the airline you are using early to guarantee your journey will not be delayed. While you are arranging your trip, check with the airlines to see if any further paperwork is required; some will have their own documents in addition to a certificate of veterinary examination.
