Traveling with your pet !

Travel is enjoyable. It can also be enjoyable with your pet on one condition ... prepare well. Lack of research before you leave can be a major source of stress and frustration. Know that it is your responsibility to ensure that you have all the information for the export of your animal in the country you are visiting. A simple trick to apply... get started early. Some countries require a health certificate, others require vaccines such as rabies or a microchip. Dewormers may be required. There are as many requirements as there are countries so you need to be educated. In addition, there are deadlines to be respected to update your pet's file. You should also allow time for the documents to be signed by an employee of a government institution such as the CFIA (Canadian Food Inspection Agency) when requested. For your information, the CFIA site is a great source of information. Airports will be able to provide you with information on transport by plane for your animal; if they can be in the cabin or not, the type of cage, the dimensions, etc. Your veterinary team is there to help you with the medical requirements requested for your trip with your pet. It is your responsibility to ensure that you meet all requirements and deadlines and that you have the required documents in your possession. Have a nice trip! Geneviève Animal health technician
