Virginia Beach Veterinary Hospital’s Pet International Travel

With USDA accredited veterinarians

When traveling with your pet(s), there may be animal health requirements specific to that destination. As soon as you know your travel details, contact your local veterinarian to assist with the pet travel process. Factors to consider may include meeting time frames for obtaining a health certificate, updating vaccinations, diagnostic testing, or administration of medications/ treatments.

Our veterinarians are USDA certified and can provide international pet health certificates, which are required when traveling with your pet outside of the United States.

The International Health Certificate should be issued by one of our USDA-certified veterinarians at Virginia Beach Veterinary Hospital as near the travel date as possible. The certificate should indicate the following:

  • Name of pet
  • Breed
  • Color
  • Age of pet
  • Country of origin
  • Name/address/phone number of the owner of a pet
  • Confirmation that the pet is healthy and free of parasites
  • Vaccinations are given, including type, manufacturer, and batch number

Please contact our office as soon as you have your travel confirmed. Our trained staff will coordinate the best appointment date for your travel needs.

Along with an international health certificate, there may be additional requirements for traveling abroad. Please take some time to familiarize yourself with the international pet travel requirements specific to your destination. If you have any questions, our staff is happy to help.
