Pet Transport at Dallas Fort Worth DFW International Airport

From the DFW International Airport Website:

“Here at DFW we know just how much your pet means to you. That’s why we have created animal relief areas at each of the five terminals.

Terminal D
Designated area located on the lower level, outside security at gates D15 and D29

Terminals A, B, C and E
Designated grassy areas located on the lower level outside security

Pets are required to be on a leash at all times when visiting DFW Airport. Additionally, if you will be traveling from DFW with your dog or cat, please keep their pet carrier on hand.

Should your pet need to step outside between flights, feel free to visit one of the designated animal relief areas listed above; however, please note that your boarding pass and ID will be required for re-entry into the Airport. TSA checkpoints close at 10:00 p.m., so we urge you and your pet or service animal to stay on the secure side after that time.”


Passenger terminals are fairly easy to navigate despite being spread out.  Passenger drop off areas and check in counters are very spacious so moving a pet in and out can be done with relative ease.

If you are dropping off or picking up pets at DFW International Airport cargo facilities be sure to plan extra time.  Extensive construction around the airport can make navigation difficult and confusing.

Pet Transportation to Latvia

Relocating Your Dog or Cat to Latvia?

Transporting Pets


Moving pets to Latvia has similar requirements to other European Union countries


Requirements to Ship Pets into Latvia



Your pet should have an ISO (International Standardization Organization) compliant microchip placed.  This number should be listed on the rabies certificate.


A rabies vaccination should be done AFTER the ISO microchip is placed.  Any vaccinations before microchipping are irrelevant to importation and transportation.  Make sure the microchip numbers is listed on the rabies certificate.

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 Latvia

(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.

We can provide all of these services for you or work with your veterinarian to assure that everything is done properly at the appropriate time.
