Traveling with your Pet?

Our veterinarians are USDA-accredited and are qualified to assist you with the process of traveling with your dog or cat.

Contact us today for more information, and to set up an appointment for your pet to receive the necessary vaccination updates, disease testing, microchipping and domestic or international health certificates completed in time for your future travel plans.

**Please note that preparing for travel to some countries can take months.

Please call us as soon as your travel plans are made so we can best help you prepare.

Below is some information we will need to know to prepare for the appointment and for completion of the health certificate:

  • Destination Country
  • Who will be traveling with the pet
  • The address in the destination state or country where your pet will be staying
  • What date your pet is departing the state or country
  • What date you and your pet arrive in the destination state or country
  • What type of pet will you be traveling with (cat or dog)
  • Vaccination and microchipping information (if not administered at our hospital)
  • What airline you and your pet will be traveling with. What airports you will be flying to and any layover information.
  • How your pet will be traveling (on board with you/as excess baggage/cargo)
  • If you have checked with your airline to determine any additional requirements they may have

It is ultimately the pet owner’s responsibility to ensure their pet has met the requirements of the destination state or country and airline.

After your health certificate has been completed, signed and dated by our USDA-accredited veterinarian, most countries require that international health certificates be submitted to a USDA-APHIS Veterinary Services office for endorsement.

  • What a thorough, caring, and knowledgeable staff! I felt like Scarlett (my cat) got compassionate and focused care. My neighbor raved about Dr. Wyler and now I know why...but the entire staff displayed over the top attentiveness! Go there, everyone!
  • I have been going to Animal Medical Hospital for many, many years, and have had several pets treated by Dr. Douglas Wyler. He has always given them the best of care, and keeps me informed about what is going on with them. He and all the staff are just wonderful - Lisa, especially, has been so helpful! I would heartily recommend them to anyone looking for a caring and knowledgeable veterinarian!
  • We have been going to Whitestone Vet Care for over 10 years now. Our dog Twister is now 11 years old and due to the wonderful care she has received from Dr.Wyler and his staff over the years, she is as healthy and happy as a spring chicken.
  • This is my 1st dog and I just love this place. They are willing to answer all my questions and concerns. I never have to wait long and everyone is so loving and caring. I feel confident my Dog Max is being care for well.
  • Very satisfied with the care my cat, Sunkiss received. The technicians, veterinarian, and staff, were very professional, friendly, and concerned about her problem. Used them for my other tabby, Tiger; who had a grocery list of problems; but lived a comfortable life to the age of 16.5 years.
