Animal Health Certificate Request Form

Please find below animal health certificate questionnaire that we kindly ask you to fill out and submit to us prior to your appointment. We also ask that you please scan and email copies of your rabies vaccination and send them to the practice at least 48 hours before your scheduled appointment so that they can be attached to the certificate ahead of time. Please bring the original rabies certificates or pet passport with rabies vaccination proof with you at the time of your appointment in case we need to make additional copies. This ensures that the process goes smoothly. Please note Animal Health Certificate appointments need to be within 10 days of travel.

    If you have several pets, please only fill out the Animal Health Certificate request form for one pet at a time.

    Please note if your animal does not have an up-to-date Rabies vaccination you will need to wait 21 days after the vaccination to receive your Animal health certificate.
