Moving with your pet includes researching airline requirements and quarantine restriction laws in your new location. Many airlines have requirements for size, weight, breed, number of animals, kennel construction, documentation and seasonal limitations. Small pets (in cabin) and large pets (in cargo) may be transported in conjunction with official travel on military flights, but availability is limited and regulations are always changing. Many international locations have strict importation laws, including extended quarantines and restrictions on breeds or types of animals. Carefully research these rules as they could impact your moving schedule. You may also find some locations in the United States that have restrictions on certain animals and breeds. Contact the Fort Campbell Veterinary Clinic on post at 270-798-4844/3614 for assistance with vaccinations, microchipping, health certificates and preparations for PCS.
