Most states require that companion animals coming into their state be accompanied by a Certificate of Veterinary Inspection attesting to the health status of the animal and indicating a current rabies vaccination. As requirements for each state vary, contact with the appropriate animal health official in the state of destination is advised prior to travel.
International health certificates for the export of animals from the United States are completed by the accredited veterinarian who certifies herd and 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 a Veterinary Services area office in order to be valid.
