Domestic Health Certificates

Are you traveling domestically within Canada? As a federally accredited veterinarian practice, we can issue travel certificates for your healthy pet so they can travel with you.

Overview

If you are planning on traveling by plane with your pet within Canada, your pet may require a domestic health certificate. As a federally accredited veterinarian practice, we can issue travel health certificates for your healthy cat, dog, or other animal so that they may travel with you.

Why does my pet need a certificate to travel?

Health certificates are federal documents that indicate your pet is healthy to travel and won’t pose a health risk to other pets or people.

When should I start the process?

If required for an airline, certificates usually must be issued within 10 days of travel. It is important to note that a pet must be at least eight weeks old and fully weaned before traveling. And, many airlines will require a Rabies vaccine and in some cases other vaccines as well. The process should be started early to allow time for meeting requirements.

Please contact our team to discuss your travel plans, and we will try to answer any questions. We do ask that the clients collect the information that they need to plan for a pet’s travel and we will help to fulfill these requirements as requested.
