Health & Travel Certificates

If you want to cross state or international borders, you may need certification to take your pet with you. As an accredited clinic, we can sign health certificates for pets that are disease-free and up-to-date on vaccinations.

Traveling With Your Pet?

Montpelier Veterinary Hospital - Health & Travel Certificates

Is this your first time obtaining a travel or health certificate for your pet? Don’t worry. Montpelier Veterinary Hospital has years of experience with these documents and can walk you through the process.

Call for an appointment and we will give your pet a thorough examination. Try to schedule this appointment well in advance if at all possible. If his health and records seem clear, we can sign the appropriate documents and you will be on your way. If, on the other hand, there are any areas of concern, it may take time to get your pet ready for travel. That said, you can count on our team to work quickly. We are able to give vaccinations and perform further health testing onsite.

Because your health and travel certificates will depend on your mode of travel, as well as your destination, be sure to do some research prior to coming in. We recommend that you call the airline and/or the consulate of the nation you are headed to. If you have further questions, give us a call and we will be happy to help.

We recommend that you make a few other preparations when traveling with your pet. To keep him safe, you might consider microchipping your pet. Or at the very least, updating his collar and tags. You should also plan on traveling with a few comfort items for your pet - like a favorite blanket or chew toy. Get in touch with our office if you have any questions about preparing your pet for travel.
