Transporting your dog to USA

Relocate your dog to USA having an IPATA registered and approved USA dog shipper such as for example Airsupply shippping (passportforpets.co.uk). You know your dog utilizes you to make the best decisions about their welfare and we follow the strict operating code laid down by IPATA. These rules are designed to make sure that your pet is not unduly stressed by the travel and which they arrive in the US in good condition. However, we’ve been shipping dogs to the USA for over 40 years and we actually go beyond IPATA guidelines because we wish both happy pets AND owners! Our pet shipping business continues to expand and we can only achieve this through happy customers who recommend our services to others.
What’s promising about shipping your puppy to the USA from the Rabies free country or Rabies controlled Country just like the UK is that there is no quarantine requirement so long as your dog has been around the UK for 6 months or more. However, your pet must have documented evidence to be vaccinated against rabies otherwise this will cause entry delays because you is going to be asked to sign a Confinement Agreement (this basically says you will get your pet vaccinated and then confine them for a minimum of 30 days after treatment). If you should be importing a puppy that is too young (usually under 6 months of age) to own 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 puppy to truly have a certificate of overall health MOST AIRLINES DO REQUIRE THIS before they will alow your pet to board an aircraft.

Generally, all dogs should be imported or exported through one of the

IATA Approved Flight Kennels

All dogs shipped by air must be housed within an IATA approved kennel which is ideal for how big is the dog being transported. Food and water must be included in the kennel for long journeys and some airlines do exercise any dogs being shipped in the hang on significant stop-overs but also for security reasons, this is not something which you (if you’re travelling on the same aircraft) will be allowed to accomplish yourself.

The Pet Travel Scheme (PETS)

PETS is made to halt the spread of rabies and other diseases while still allowing pets to travel.

Northern Ireland has been without any rabies for quite some time, in some other countries there’s still a risk of the illness to mammals. The largest risk for rabies entering here will be through an infected animal smuggled in illegally.

All rabies-susceptible animals entering the UK are normally required to invest four months in quarantine, unless they arrive under and meet most of the conditions of PETS.

All pet dogs (including assistance dogs), cats and ferrets can enter or re-enter the UK without quarantine under PETS provided they meet the principles of the scheme, which differ depending on the country the pet is travelling from.

They might then have the ability to get early release if they may be shown to meet the required pet travel requirements.

Countries participating in PETS include most areas of Europe and many non-European destinations.

General Information About Exporting Pets

Once you request a pet export quotation we quote for all costs to move your pet by air to the named destination airport.

There will however be additional charges payable at the airport of destination to cover costs for such items as airline import handling, customs clearance and veterinary charges. As these fees are payable in country of destination, and we’re unable to pay them on your own behalf, so these charges aren’t contained in the quote (but we shall advise you of this).

Prices are influenced by the size/weight of the animal(s) to be exported, any additional services (such as UK transportation, kenneling, and veterinary certification), flight time and the destination. In the case of dogs, the box size provided is based on the measurements given to us. Should these measurements be incorrect we accept no responsibility for almost any delay or extra costs involved as a result.

Animals should be shipped in containers developed to IATA specifications which are the correct size for them i.e. they should be big enough for the pet to remain true without touching the the surface of the box, take a nap comfortably and have the ability to turn round within the box. There must also be considered a fixed water container inside the container with a means of filling it from the outside (funnel).

In case you need to utilise our services we will have to have written confirmation with payment when possible and at least 28 days beforehand. We will also demand a contact Name, Address and Telephone Number in the country of destination (the airline will have to ring beforehand to confirm acceptance).

You might be able to take your pet as excess baggage, which will mean booking direct with passenger reservations. This may also be a cheaper option (please remember that some airlines cannot take livestock and that there may be restrictions such as for example standby status depending on the airline and the route). However should the animal(s) be an especially large shipment (in Airline terms) or coping with the animal(s) at the same time frame because the move be particularly difficult then we could offer the cargo option as well as other services including collection, kenneling and Export Health Certification.

With info on the measurements of the animal(s) we could build transit kennels to fit. Kennels can be either found from us or delivered to any U.K. Airport to coincide along with your register time or be brought to your home.

Whatever the mode of travel, pets should go in to the cargo hold of the aircraft. That is heated and pressurised to the exact same extent whilst the passenger cabin. The animals are loaded into the hold approximately around 30 minutes before departure (however the airline requires that they are delivered for them 4 hours before the flight) and are unloaded at one other end usually within 30 minutes of the plane landing. Once the documents are available the animals could be cleared through customs. The handling/vet fees are then payable to the Import Shed Operator at which point the animals can be collected and taken home.

Pet Microchip

The first step to prepare your dog, cat or ferret to enter the United Kingdom is to possess your pet microchipped having an ISO 11784/11785 compliant 15 digit pet microchip.

If your pet currently features a microchip that’s not ISO 11784/11785 compliant, you then have 3 choices:

You may bring your own microchip scanner.
You can contact the officials at the Border Inspection Post where you’ll enter the UK and inquire as to whether they have scanners that could read your pet’s chip.
If your pet’s current microchip can nevertheless be read, your veterinarian can implant compliant chip. The number and implant dates of both microchips should be documented on the EU Health Certificate (see step #5).

A tattoo is a satisfactory kind of identification so long as it was presented with just before July 3, 2011, is clearly visible and your pet was vaccinated for rabies following the tattoo was applied.

Rabies Vaccination

All dogs, cats and ferrets will need to have evidence of a current rabies vaccination administered after having a microchip was implanted to enter the United Kingdom.

The very first rabies vaccination following the microchip is implanted is called the primary vaccination and it should be a twelve months vaccine. If your pet’s previous vaccination had expired before being revaccinated, the next vaccination becomes the principal vaccination and additionally, it must be a twelve months vaccine.

All vaccinations that are administered after the principal vaccination are called booster vaccinations.

If your pet is entering the United Kingdom from the rabies-free (click here) or rabies-controlled country (click here), the principal rabies vaccination must certanly be administered no sooner than 21 days before entering the United Kingdom.

There’s no waiting period after booster vaccinations as long as:

the prior vaccination was administered after having a microchip was implanted AND
the prior vaccination had not expired when the booster was given.

The United Kingdom does honor the 3 year rabies vaccination for dogs, cats and ferrets; however, it will only be administered as an enhancement, much less a key vaccination. You are able to speak to your veterinarian about this.

Once your pet has entered the United Kingdom, a 21 day waiting period isn’t required for subsequent visits, provided rabies boosters are kept up to date, and the other entry requirements are met.

If your pet is entering the United Kingdom from the high-rabies country, it must await a minimum of 30 days after vaccination before getting a rabies titer test (see step #3).

Taking your pet on your flight

Pets can travel of all scheduled flights from Heathrow and Gatwick to nearly every the main world so in most cases, your pet should have the ability to travel for a passing fancy flight as yourself if that is what you should like. The majority of the ‘low-cost’airlines don’t carry pets however, and there are few points that should be thought about with this sort of pet shipment.

Firstly, pets arrive into the cargo or freight area of the airport, not the passenger terminal and you cannot maintain two places at once! If you’re organized attending to your personal customs and visa formalities, your pet might be left looking forward to more than required to be collected and released from their travel kennel.

Also, it’s worth bearing in mind that most airports need you to take your pets travel kennel away with you. In the case of large or multiple pets, the travel kennel/s may prove very difficult to move, especially if you have all your own personal luggage to manage too.

Lastly, you’ll have no use of your pet from the full time they’re checked in at the departure airport until you collect them at the destination airport, and for many 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 to their quarantine accommodation.

If you’ve considered these points and still want your pet to visit on a single flight as yourself, we’ll come together with you to allow for this whenever possible.

We’re happy to meet clients who are travelling for a passing fancy aircraft as their pets at the London airports on the afternoon of shipment. We’d require seeing copies most of Veterinary paperwork to make sure they’re suitable for travel and whilst we will always ask you to check on and double check the size of 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 kind of shipment. The single most frequent reason behind these last second problems at the airport may 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 will sometimes ask you many times if you should be sure about the size as a wriggly dog is not exactly an easy task to measure and we can usually tell if the measurements don’t sound right for the breed of dog.

Many pets which have previously travelled in to the UK in a certain size kennel might not be able to travel back out in exactly the same kennel due to the stringent rules applied when leaving the UK. Heathrow and Gatwick airports are amongst the strictest on the planet for animal welfare, and therefore the message listed here is that if you’re not sure please say so once we will then make contingency plans for if the kennel is not a adequate fit.

Pet Shipping Advice

All pet dogs and cats should be microchipped just before international travel, so ensuring this is performed will always be the first step in preparing your pets for travel. Another 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 extremely anxious about sending their pets on a journey, and that is, needless to say, totally understandable. However, 4 million domestic pets fly every year across the world and the risks of airline travel for them are the same as a human of the equivalent health status. The scare-mongering articles that can 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 that are required just before airline journeys. The UK has strict welfare regulations governing international pet travel and animals would not be allowed to depart from any UK Airport within an unsuitable travel kennel or in ill health.

Pets shouldn’t happen to be arrive at any destination over a weekend or Bank Holiday because at most airports abroad you will find no cargo handling arrangements during today and/or Customs clearance where applicable. If they’re allowed to reach at weekends it usually incurs an additional fees and possible delays in collecting your pet, so it’s always best to send for a weekday arrival. There are exceptions to this so please contact our office for more information if that is something you require.

When taking your pet to a foreign country, please ensure they are only given water that’s safe for humans to drink, we’d strongly advise bottled water if you’re in virtually any doubt whatsoever. UK born animals will not have the natural immunity of native pets in your new country, therefore it is imperative they are extremely well protected with broad spectrum parasite treatments, to lessen the danger of serious illnesses transmitting to your pet. It is also advisable to make sure that their routine vaccinations are up to date because it is prudent to offer them as much disease immunity as possible.

Pets are more adaptable than they’re 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 brand-new country, there’s no reasons why pets cannot settle well into your brand-new life abroad together.
