Transporting your dog to USA
Relocate your puppy to USA with an IPATA registered and approved USA dog shipper such as for instance Airsupply shippping (passportforpets.co.uk). You realize your puppy depends on you to help make the best decisions about their welfare and we follow the strict operating code laid down by IPATA. These rules were created to ensure your dog isn’t unduly stressed by the travel and they get to the US in good condition. However, we’ve been shipping dogs to the USA for over 40 years and we actually rise above IPATA guidelines because we would like both happy pets AND owners! Our pet shipping business continues to expand and we are able to only achieve this through happy customers who recommend our services to others.
What’s promising about shipping your dog to the USA from a Rabies free country or Rabies controlled Country like the UK is that there surely is no quarantine requirement so long as your pet has been doing the UK for 6 months or more. However, your pet must have documented evidence to be vaccinated against rabies otherwise this can lead to entry delays as you is likely to be asked to sign a Confinement Agreement (this basically says that you will get your dog vaccinated and then confine them for at the least 30 days after treatment). If you are importing a puppy that’s too young (usually under 6 months of age) to have had the rabies vaccination then you definitely will need a Confinement Agreement, see: USA CDC Dog Confinement Agreements for more details. Whilst the CDC (US authority on pet imports) doesn’t require your puppy to truly have a certificate of overall 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 one of the
The Pet Travel Scheme is a UK Government scheme which allows pet cats and dogs to enter the U.K. without spending amount of time in quarantine.
To be able to comply with your rules you will need to do the next (In Order).
Check the guidelines applicable to your pet on the https://www.gov.uk/bringing-food-animals-plants-into-uk internet site and make your plans accordingly.
Have your animal fitted with a microchip.
Have your pet vaccinated against rabies.
For qualifying countries, after an amount of 21 days following your pet’s vaccination, your pet may then go the UK.
When you yourself have any evidence that the pet is fit and healthy (like a letter from a vet stating that the pet has been examined and what the findings were), then this may be helpful.
Between 1 and 5 days prior to the date of departure your puppy (this doesn’t affect cats or ferrets) should be treated against tapeworm. You must have this treatment completed by way of a vet and ensure they issue you with a certificate to the effect/stamp your pet’s passport.
Please be aware that you can find different rules applicable determined by where your pet has travelled from. If your pet can very quickly be identified (because thet have been fitted with a pet passport microchip) then importation will be much easier. Always try and travel with your pet so you are available to answer any questions while they arise.
You can find other considerations you should consider before bringing your pet back in the U.K. as an example the route that the pet travels must certanly be approved by DEFRA. The airline that you use should be an authorized carrier and the country that you are flying from needs to be always a qualifying country.

Exporting Pets Living in the United Kingdom
All dogs, cats and ferrets leaving the UK must certanly be microchipped, vaccinated for rabies (in that order) and wait 21 days before leaving the country. It’s also wise to ask your veterinarian for an EU Pet Passport if you intend to come back to the UK.
If you are likely to take your pet on a trip to a country with a top incidence of rabies, your veterinarian should administer a Blood Titer Test when you leave the united states if you want to come back to the EU. There isn’t to hold back 90 days before traveling if your pet comes with an EU pet passport and its vaccination and blood test were done in the EU and recorded in your pet passport.
There isn’t to wait 3 months if your pet has an EU pet passport and its vaccination and blood test were done in the EU and recorded in your pet passport.
