 Moving With Your Pet

Whether you are moving domestically or across international borders, there are a few factors to consider for the journey to be successful. While getting the right moving company is one of them, the second one is thinking about the accompanying parties. For example, are you moving with your pet? If you are then inform your moving company in advance so they can make the necessary preparations. There are also other requirements that you need to fulfill when moving pets from one place to the other.

Here are some of the important documents you need to have in place in order to make the moving process of your pet easy.

Health records

Before you move your pet from one location to the other, it is a requirement that you have it checked by a qualified veterinary officer. After this checkup, it is important that you ask the vet whether there are other health-related requirements that you need to fulfill for your pet. Usually, a reliable veterinary officer will take you through all the requirements and avail the documentation that you need. After examining the pet, you need to be given a checkup information sheet showing your pet’s health status. This might be in hard copy, or availed in an electronic version.

Health Records

Health certificate

A health certificate is a document that indicates the state of your pet in regards to various diseases. Normally, there are certain diseases different animals should be checked for, such as rabies in case you are moving a dog. The majority of pets, such as dogs, require an interstate health certificate, while other small pets might need such certificates with reference to where you are moving to. All that you need to do is to ask the vet about the appropriate documents needed based on the given state’s needs.

Pet passport

Different regions have strict requirements when moving pets from one area to the other. For example, when it comes to international moves, some regions such as EU require you to have a passport for your pet. Your pet’s passport should include all the information about your pet and also about you. It is advisable to ensure that you have a passport issued just for your pet, get a microchip, as well as have the necessary vaccinations. All of this information needs to be up to date for you to be allowed to move your pet to your region of interest. This is not a document that you can get within one day; early preparation is essential.

Moving your pets can be stressful especially if you do not have the necessary information on what documents you need to have, or what requirements you need to meet. However, if you engage a reliable moving company alongside an experienced veterinary officer, you can be guaranteed to have an easy process moving your pet. Do disclose all the necessary information about your pet, including where you will be moving it to, in order to get the right information.

I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

There are a lot of options for auto transport these days, which surprisingly makes it harder to find a good company. I received more than 10 offers to ship my car, but I couldn’t decide on any of them... Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport.
