International Health Certificates for Dogs and Cats Dallas Texas

In order to move a pet internationally you will need a USDA Accredited Veterinarian to examine your dog or cat and complete some export health documents including the USDA APHIS 7001 UNITED STATES INTERSTATE AND INTERNATIONAL CERTIFICATE OF HEALTH EXAMINATION FOR SMALL ANIMALS in addition to some other paperwork that is country specific.

 

Pet Transport Service

For your international health certificate appointment note the following:

  • For pets in the DFW Dallas Fort Worth International Airport area we try to schedule international health certificate appointments for about 7 days before travel for most destinations. This allows enough time to get documents endorsed by the USDA and also gives a little flexibility in day of travel as these documents are only valid for 10 days in most cases. This will vary for some countries.
  • We can easily handle the USDA endorsement of your export health documents for you. We try to make this process as easy as we can.
  • For your appointment you will need to bring:
    • Your Pet
    • Original Rabies certificate signed in blue ink (signature stamps are generally not accepted by foreign countries for import). We will handle this if your pet was vaccinated with us
    • Additional vaccination and test results if required by the destination country
    • Address and Phone number in the United States
    • Address and Phone number in the destination country
  • Please request an appointment for international health certificates on our Health Certificate Request page

Dr. David Landers DVM is a USDA accredited veterinarian for international health certificates, domestic health certificates, and other travel / export documents and can take care of all pre-transport testing needs as well.

USDA Accredited Veterinarian Dallas Texas

For pet transport by air or ground across state or country borders you will need a health certificate. Health Certificates can only be written by USDA Accredited Veterinarians. Our veterinarians are USDA accredited for both Category I and Category II animals (see below). If you are using a veterinarian from another facility to do your health certificates, make sure they are currently USDA accredited under the new revised program. This is especially important for international pet transport and shipping. The USDA will not endorse an international health certificate written by a veterinarian that is not accredited by the USDA APHIS Veterinary Services department.

USDA Accredited Veterinarian International Health Certificate

On December 9, 2009 the U.S. Department of Agriculture Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (USDA-APHIS) published a final ruling that revised the veterinary accreditation program.

The National USDA Veterinary Accreditation Program (NVAP)

is designed to allow private practice veterinarians to assist federal veterinarians in controlling animal diseases. According to the USDA-APHIS, the revisions will “strengthen animal health safeguarding activities and increase the training and skills of accredited veterinarians in disease prevention and preparedness for animal health emergencies.”

The revised program took effect February 1, 2010.

The changes to the NVAP program for USDA Accredited Veterinarians include the following:

  • Two species-based accreditation categories instead of one
  • Accredited veterinarians will be assigned a six-digit national accreditation number
  • Requirements for supplemental training in 2013 at the earliest
    • Supplemental training will be available online, in print form, and at multiple veterinary meetings and conventions.
    • NVAP training may be accepted by many states as credits toward license renewal CE requirements.
  • Renewal of accreditation every three (3) years
  • Veterinarians accredited before February 1, 2010 must apply to continue their accreditation in the NVAP.

Category I animals:

All animals except: food and fiber species, horses, birds, farm-raised aquatic animals, all other livestock species, and zoo animals that can transmit exotic animal diseases to livestock.

Category II animals:

Category II animal species examples: food and fiber animal species (cow, pig, sheep, goat, all ruminant), horse (mule, ass, pony, zebra), all bird species and poultry, farm-raised aquatic animal species, livestock species (bison, captive cervid, llama, alpaca, antelope, other hoofed animal), zoo animals that can transmit exotic animal diseases to livestock.
