International Health Certificates for Morris County NJ Pets

International Health Certificates From Community Animal Hospital

Dr. Sheila Bank of Community Animal Hospital is certified by the USDA National Veterinary Accreditation Program (NVAP) and is able to fulfill pet import and export requirements regarding pet inspection and issuing of international health certificates.

Obtaining an international health certificate for your pet is quite a process, one we attempt to make as painless as possible for our clients. International business may take you to countries such as Brazil, China, or the Middle East. Pet owners in the military find themselves moving to places such as Italy, Germany, and Japan. In light of this, we are committed to assisting our business and military clients in bringing their pets along with their family.

If you know you may be leaving the country, contact us immediately. This process can take months of planning and we will want to address it as soon as possible. Be aware that most veterinary facilities are not certified to provide this service, but Community Animal Hospital is pleased to assist you in your upcoming travels.

It Is the Law

Whether you are military personnel or simply traveling abroad, the Animal & Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) is one of three federal agencies that you will encounter as you travel with your pet. International health certificates for the export of animals from the United States are completed by the APHIS-accredited veterinarian who certifies animal health status, conducts tests, and records test results for the individual animals being exported.

Completed and signed international health certificates for the export of animals from the United States must be endorsed by the state veterinary services office in Trenton in order to be valid. To obtain the USDA endorsement of an international health certificate or any other documents relating to traveling with your pet, the documents must be completed by an APHIS-accredited veterinarian. That is why it is so that Dr. Bank has obtained this status and is able to assist you.
