Health Certificates

A European Union Annex II veterinary certificate should be completed along with a United States Department of Agriculture USDA 7001 International Health Certificate for Small Animals should be completed.  At least 21 days must have passed after the rabies vaccination before these documents can be signed for transport to Germany (this timing will vary between USDA offices).  These must be done by a USDA accredited veterinarian and endorsed by the USDA.  The timing of these documents depends on the origin location due to endorsement logistics.

May 10, 2012 —The International Pet and Animal Transportation Association (IPATA), the worldwide network of professional pet shippers, has successfully lobbied United Airlines to accept pit bulls and other breeds that are considered dangerous in cargo areas.  United Airlines will now accept the following breeds, as long as they are six months and older, weigh more than 20 pounds and adhere to the proper kennel regulations:

“In the right crates, these dogs are no risk to people involved in the handling as well as passengers traveling on the same plane,” says Marcel Brozius, ACE Pet Moving GmbH, member of IPATA’s Board of Directors and the IPATA member who advocated for this change. “Since many airlines do not accept pit bulls and others, it can be extremely difficult for families needing to relocate. With this recent change to United’s policy, families now have more options.”

Many airlines across the globe do not accept these breeds because they can chew through their crates and escape. United has instituted new crate regulations which will safely and comfortable contain these breeds of dogs. The new crate restrictions, which were suggested by IPATA, include:

  • No plastic crates are permitted.
  • Crates must meet the Air Transport Association’s Container Requirement #82.
  • The crate frame must be made from solid wood or metal parts bolted together.
  • If the total weight of the crate plus animal exceeds 132 pounds, metal bracing must be added to the frame.
