Nothing can waylay a trip with an animal faster than a health problem, and your pet's well-being should be of primary importance to you. A clean bill of health is an important first step in assuring your pet's ability to adjust safely to unfamiliar surroundings. In addition, most states and countries require recent health certificates and disease inoculation documentation before you will be allowed to cross borders, making a trip to the veterinarian mandatory.Air Travel
According to federal regulations, an airline cannot accept an animal from its owner unless the following qualifications are met: The animal must be 1) at least 8 weeks old; 2) certified as healthy within 10 days prior to departure; 3) secured in a carrier which meets the required standards; and 4) adequately identified in the manner specified. Because airlines can be fined for not adhering to these regulations, animals will be turned away at a ticket counter, so it is to your advantage to be conscientious in preparing for your pet's journey.
