Pet Travel Certificates in Forest Grove

With pets as our family members, we all like to take our dogs or cat with us on vacation and wouldn’t imagine moving without them! Did you know there are a lot of government regulations and requirements for pet travel? Commercial airlines have strict pet travel policies as well. Most of the time, a certificate of veterinary inspection, also known as a health certificate, is required for your pet to travel. Without this special documentation, your pet will either be turned away by the airline or potentially quarantined at your own cost.

Traveling with your pet requires planning and preparation; we are here to assist you. To accommodate the changes in travel policies and allow our vet staff the time needed to acquire, verify, and help you complete travel documents accurately and timely, please bring them in to discuss the requirements and lay out a timeline of your pet as far in advance as possible when traveling. It is best to bring them in months in advance. If you have a question about if you will be able to make a planned trip with your pet, please don’t hesitate to call us to go over the necessary steps.

Please review the requirements of the destination state for your pet on the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture’s (USDA) Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS)’s website.
