Planning to get out of the country with your pet? In order to go, you will need to obtain an International Health Certificate before embarking. You want your pet to travel comfortably and safely, and it’s important to be sure your pet is free of illness and infection, both for your pet’s sake and so as to not spread disease to other parts of the world. An International Health Certificate verifies that your pet is healthy and ready for travel. At Avondale Animal Hospital, we help you have a smooth and quick process for approving international pet travel from Birmingham, Alabama.
Depending on the country you’re travelling to, you may need to get a specific health certificate. This applies to many countries, including those in the European Union. Some countries don’t have a specific certificate, so if traveling to one of these, you will need the International Health Certificate (USDA-APHIS 7001).
