Transporting your dog to USA
Relocate your pet to USA by having an IPATA registered and approved USA dog shipper such as for example Airsupply shippping (passportforpets.co.uk). You realize your pet relies on you to help make the best decisions about their welfare and we follow the strict operating code laid down by IPATA. These rules are made to ensure that your puppy is not unduly stressed by the travel and which they get to the US in good condition. However, we have been shipping dogs to the USA for over 40 years and we actually exceed IPATA guidelines because we would like both happy pets AND owners! Our pet shipping business continues to expand and we could only achieve this through happy customers who recommend our services to others.
The good news about shipping your pet to the USA from the Rabies free country or Rabies controlled Country just like the UK is that there surely is no quarantine requirement so long as your puppy has been doing the UK for 6 months or more. However, your pet will need to have documented evidence to be vaccinated against rabies otherwise this will cause entry delays since you is likely to be asked to sign a Confinement Agreement (this basically says you will get your dog vaccinated and then confine them for at the least 30 days after treatment). If you’re importing a puppy that’s too young (usually under 6 months of age) to possess had the rabies vaccination then you definitely will be needing a Confinement Agreement, see: USA CDC Dog Confinement Agreements for more details. Whilst the CDC (US authority on pet imports) doesn’t require your dog to really have a certificate of general health MOST AIRLINES DO REQUIRE THIS before they’ll alow your pet to board an aircraft.
Generally, all dogs must be imported or exported through among the
Taking your pet in your flight
Pets can travel of all scheduled flights from Heathrow and Gatwick to virtually every the main world so generally, your pet should have the ability to travel on a single flight as yourself if this is what you will like. The majority of the ‘low-cost’airlines do not carry pets however, and you can find few points that should be considered with this type of pet shipment.
Firstly, pets arrive to the cargo or freight area of the airport, not the passenger terminal and you can’t take two places at once! If you’re organized attending to your own personal customs and visa formalities, your pet may be left awaiting longer than required to be collected and released from their travel kennel.
Also, it’s worth bearing at heart that a lot of airports require you to take your pets travel kennel away with you. In case of large or multiple pets, the travel kennel/s may prove extremely tough to transport, particularly if you have all your personal luggage to cope with too.
Lastly, you’ll have no usage of your pet from the time they’re checked in at the departure airport before you collect them at the destination airport, and for a few countries such as for example Australia and New Zealand where quarantine on landing is applicable, you will not have the ability to see your pets before they’re taken for their quarantine accommodation.
If you’ve considered these points and still want your pet to visit for a passing fancy flight as yourself, we’ll come together with you to support this whenever possible.
We’re happy to generally meet clients who are travelling on a single aircraft as their pets at the London airports on the day of shipment. We’d require seeing copies each of Veterinary paperwork to make sure they’re suitable for travel and whilst we will always ask you to test and check how big your pet and travel kennel in advance, we unfortunately cannot accept any responsibility for last-minute delays or problems occurred on your day of travel with this type of shipment. The single most frequent reason behind these last minute problems at the airport could be the measurements being incorrect and the travel kennel being refused as too small for the dog. With the years of experience we’ve with these kind of issues, we shall sometimes ask you many times if you are sure about the size as a wriggly dog is not quite easy to measure and we could usually tell if the measurements don’t sound right for the breed of dog.
Many pets that have previously travelled into the UK in a particular size kennel might not manage to travel back out in the exact same kennel because of the stringent rules applied when leaving the UK. Heathrow and Gatwick airports are amongst the strictest on the planet for animal welfare, and and so the message listed here is that if you’re uncertain please say so once we will then make contingency plans for if the kennel is not really a good enough fit.

Pet Shipping Advice
All pet dogs and cats should be microchipped ahead of international travel, so ensuring this is performed can be the first step in preparing your pets for travel. The other veterinary requirements vary immensely between every country, so please check the relevant page on our website or contact us for more in-depth information.
Most owners are very anxious about sending their pets on a trip, and this is, obviously, totally understandable. However, 4 million domestic pets fly every year throughout the world and the risks of airline travel for them are exactly the same as a human of the same health status. The scare-mongering articles that may be on the internet listing death and injury as common occurrences for air travel typically occur once the rules for airline travel are flouted, such as for instance animals being cramped into inappropriately sized travel kennels and not given the rigorous medical examinations which are required just before airline journeys. The UK has strict welfare regulations governing international pet travel and animals could not be permitted to depart from any UK Airport in a unsuitable travel kennel or in ill health.
Pets shouldn’t go arrive at any destination over a week-end or Bank Holiday because for the most part airports abroad you will find no cargo handling arrangements during today and/or Customs clearance where applicable. If they are allowed to arrive at weekends it always incurs an additional fees and possible delays in collecting your pet, so it’s always far better send for a weekday arrival. You can find exceptions to this so please contact our office for more information if this is something you require.
When taking your pet to a foreign country, please ensure they’re only given water that is safe for humans to drink, we would strongly advise bottled water if you should be in any doubt whatsoever. UK born animals will not have the natural immunity of native pets in your new country, therefore it is imperative they’re quite well protected with broad spectrum parasite treatments, to lessen the chance of serious illnesses transmitting to your pet. It can also be advisable to ensure that all of their routine vaccinations are updated because it is prudent to offer them the maximum amount of disease immunity as possible.
Pets tend to be more adaptable than they are often given credit for, and with some common-sense precautions regarding changes in climate, natural dangers, standard of veterinary care and relevant laws in your new country, there is no reason pets cannot settle well into your brand-new life abroad together.
