GENERAL TRAVEL RULES

If you are flying you need to acquire a health certificate from a veterinarian and a temperature waiver.

If you are driving check with your destination. Some places will require a health certificate and others will simply require a vaccine certificate from your veterinarian.

Consider your pets well-being during travel. Where will your pet be located physically during travel? (Belly of a plane, in a carrier on your lap, back of a car, etc...) Do you know how your pet handles the stress of travel? Does your pet get travel related stress to the point of diarrhea, vomitting? What will the travel temperature be and is your pet prepared?

Where are you traveling to? Do you need to be concerned with fleas, ticks, or other sicknesses, illnesses due to changes in climate? If so, talk to your veterinarian about what they would recommend before you depart. What will the temperature be?

Do you know if there is a veterinary clinic at or near your destination? If there is you can request copies of your pets medical record from your veterinarian to take with you in case of an emergency or other medical need while you are traveling. This facilitates a visit to a strange veterinarian significantly.

Be sure that if you give your pet regular medications or preventitive treatments that you acquiring sufficient quantities before you leave.
