USDA Pet Health Certificates for International & Domestic Travel

University Animal Hospital continues to excel as the best, and most highly recommended, provider of USDA Pet Health Certificates in New York City for both International and Domestic Travel.

Every country has very specific and unique health requirements.

Improper or incomplete travel paperwork can derail your travel plans, costing you valuable time, money and aggravation.

DIGITAL SUBMISSION (VEHCS)- We are proud to have been selected by the USDA to access their Digital Submission and Endorsement Platform (VEHCS) enabling us to expedite your pet’s international travel certification. Many countries now allow our veterinarians to electronically submit your pet’s certificates and supporting documentation to APHIS for review and USDA endorsement.

Our team of USDA-certified veterinarians have successfully helped pet owners prepare for travel domestically and abroad for many years. We will walk you through the process from start to finish. Our experienced team will ensure the accuracy of your documentation for your pet’s travel.

  • Domestic Travel Certificates

    A Certificate of Veterinary Inspection, otherwise known as a health certificate, certifies that your pet is healthy, free from all contagious diseases, and able to travel within certain climates.
  • International Travel Certificates

    Only our USDA Accredited Veterinarians have the authority to both examine your pet and issue the USDA required paperwork for traveling internationally. As the requirements vary from country to country we strongly recommend you allow our experienced team to secure all of your necessary documentation.
