International Health Certificates

Traveling with Your Pet? We’ve Got You Covered!

At Berg Animal Hospital, we understand that your pets are part of the family, and you want them with you wherever you go – even internationally. Traveling with pets requires careful planning, especially when it comes to meeting the health requirements of your destination country. That’s where our International Health Certificate services come in.

What is an International Health Certificate?

An International Health Certificate is an official document required by many countries to ensure that your pet is healthy and free from contagious diseases before they are allowed entry. This certificate is essential for international travel and must be completed by a USDA-accredited veterinarian.

  • Pre-Travel Consultation: We provide a detailed consultation to understand your travel plans and the specific health requirements of your destination country.
  • Health Examination: Our USDA-accredited veterinarians conduct a comprehensive health examination to ensure your pet meets all the necessary health standards.
  • Vaccinations and Tests: We administer any required vaccinations, tests, or treatments, such as rabies vaccinations, blood tests, or parasite treatments, as mandated by your destination.
  • Documentation: We accurately complete the International Health Certificate and any other required documentation, ensuring everything is in order for your pet’s journey.
  • USDA Endorsement: If necessary, we facilitate the endorsement of the health certificate by the USDA, ensuring compliance with all regulatory requirements.

Tips for Traveling with Your Pet

  • Plan Ahead: Start the process of obtaining an International Health Certificate well in advance of your travel date, as some requirements may take several months to complete.
  • Research Requirements: Each country has different health requirements for pet entry. Ensure you are aware of the specific requirements for your destination.
