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 realize your dog depends on you to really make the best decisions about their welfare and we follow the strict operating code laid down by IPATA.

The good thing about shipping your dog to the USA from the Rabies free country or Rabies controlled Country like the UK is that there surely is no quarantine requirement provided that your pet has been doing the UK for 6 months or more. However, your puppy must have documented evidence of being vaccinated against rabies otherwise this can result in entry delays as you will 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 is too young (usually under 6 months of age) to own had the rabies vaccination you then will require 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.

Pet Shipping Advice
All pet dogs and cats must certanly be microchipped just before international travel, so ensuring this is performed will be the first faltering step in preparing your pets for travel. One 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 extremely anxious about sending their pets on a flight, and this is, of course, 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 an individual of the equivalent health status. The scare-mongering articles which can be found on the internet listing death and injury as common occurrences for air travel almost always occur once the rules for airline travel are flouted, such as animals being cramped into inappropriately sized travel kennels and not given the rigorous medical examinations that are required ahead of 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 can find no cargo handling arrangements during these days and/or Customs clearance where applicable. If they’re allowed to arrive at weekends it always incurs an additional fees and possible delays in collecting your pet, therefore it is always better to send for a weekday arrival. You can find 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 would strongly advise bottled water if you are in any doubt whatsoever. UK born animals will not have the natural immunity of native pets in your brand-new country, so it’s imperative they are very well protected with broad spectrum parasite treatments, to lessen the danger of serious illnesses transmitting to your pet. It can be advisable to make sure that all of their routine vaccinations are current because it’s prudent to offer them just 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 is no reasons why pets cannot settle well into your life abroad together.
