Services we provide to pet shippers

Pre-flight document checks

Our experienced travel vets will work alongside your chosen Pet Shipping company to ensure your pet’s paperwork is correct. By scanning your pet’s documents prior to travel, we can spot and address any potential problems before your pet is due to depart i.e. vaccination dates, microchip, travel health document errors, blood tests etc. This will help to ensure your pet has a smooth entry when they arrive at their destination.

Last-minute health checks

We operate an on-call service 24/7 for Pet Travel emergencies. If your pet has an ongoing medical condition when they are due to travel (export or import) we can help. Our experienced vets attend last-minute health checks at the Shipping Companies and provide advice on how to medicate pets mid-journey.

If medication needs to travel with your pet, some countries will require a vet-issued medical form to allow this.

We work with all pet shippers and recommend consulting the IPATA.org website where you can find an approved pet shipping agent
