Health Certificates

At Calgary Family Vet, we understand that pets are cherished members of the family, and pet owners often desire to travel with them.

Importance of Health Certificates

One essential document for pet travel is the certificate of veterinary inspection, commonly referred to as a health certificate. This document verifies that your pet is healthy and up-to-date on vaccinations, ensuring your pet’s and other travellers’ safety. Without a health certificate, your pet may be denied boarding by the airline or even subjected to quarantine at your expense.

To navigate the complexities of pet travel requirements, Calgary Family Vet is here to help. Our veterinarians have extensive experience acquiring, verifying, and completing travel documents accurately and promptly. By scheduling an appointment well in advance of your travel date, you can ensure that all necessary paperwork is in order and avoid any last-minute complications.

Key Points about Health Certificates:

  • The health certificate verifies that your pet is healthy and up-to-date on vaccinations, ensuring the safety of your pet and other travellers.
  • Without a health certificate, the airline may deny your pet boarding or subject it to quarantine at your expense, leading to potential travel disruptions.
