What is Covered by a Pet Travel Exam?

The specific requirements of a pet travel exam vary by species and destination. However, the general purpose is to ensure that all pets are in good health and will not pose a health risk to other animals abroad.

For most pets, this includes (but is not limited to) performing a brief exam, placing or verifying a microchip, completing paperwork, and for some destinations, obtaining USDA endorsement. It also means reviewing the pet’s vaccination status to ensure safe travels.
