Winter Pet Care
Many pet owners live with the misconception that because their pets have a coat of fur, they can tolerate the cold better than we can, this isn’t necessarily the case. Like us, these fur-coated creatures are used to the warmth of indoor shelter and cold weather can be as hard on them as well. Be careful when laying salt, as some mixtures can be abrasive or harmful to pets if they come in contact with it. For additional information on cold weather pet safety, visit the American Veterinary Medical Association website.
Special restrictions apply for pets traveling by air. All animals flying CONUS and OCONUS require a "10 Day Health Certificate" and updated vaccinations. Check with the airline your animal(s) are flying on for specific guidelines and details, especially in this COVID-19 environment. There will be small details that will vary from airline to airline. Ensure you have the most updated information regarding pet travel by checking the guidelines by logging onto the airline's direct website.
Pets can only travel during certain times depending on temperature and the flying destination.
If your pet(s) are flying overseas, additional paperwork is necessary to bring your pet into that country. Your pet may have possible quarantine requirements in Japan, Guam, Hawaii and the United Kingdom. Ensure you are in contact with the destination state USDA or Vet Clinic by visiting their websites for specific details, information and forms.
