When traveling to different parts of the United States, be sure to check with our veterinarians on the different health concerns for pets. Different parts of the country contend with different pet diseases, parasites, and risks that Capeway Veterinary Hospital can prepare your pet to handle.
If you will be taking your pet onboard a flight, be sure to check with the individual airline, as each airline has its own requirements on health certificates, kennel requirements, and even on how pets travel under different weather conditions.
If you will be driving, be sure your pet will be safely in the back seat either in a pet crate or secured with a pet safety belt so that he or she does not interfere with your driving and so that your pet is restrained in the event of an accident. Speak with our veterinarians if your pet experiences anxiety in the car for additional tips on behavioral training.
When traveling outside of the United States, you may need an International Health Certificate for your pet. Capeway Veterinary Hospital’s doctors are accredited to complete International Health Certificates for pets and will help you prepare for your trip abroad. Be sure to start your planning early, as different countries have different requirements when bringing pets across borders.
Traveling with your pet can be a great experience both for you and for your pet. Contact Capeway Veterinary Hospital if we can help you prepare.
