Health CertificatesHealth Requirements

At Whitworth Animal Clinic, we issue veterinary health certificates that are valid anywhere in the U.S or anywhere where officials require one. We issue them to pet owners who will be taking their pets outside of Alabama. After an initial examination, we issue a certificate to you in order to satisfy transportation requirements for your animals.

Federal Law to Protect Everyone

For those who transport animals across the country and the world, it’s a common requirement to present a certificate of health along with your pet upon arrival. States and countries consider it a priority to allow only healthy, disease-free animals into their jurisdiction. According to U.S federal law, an animal health certificate must accompany any dog or cat that is being commercially transported outside of your state. This regulation helps to ensure that pets don’t spread disease across state lines.

Let Whitworth Clinic Sort It Out For You

When transporting animals abroad, the different countries throughout the world may have similar requirements. Animal owners who transport their pets within Alabama and in their own private vehicle are not required to have a health certificate. However, if you are traveling across state lines, a certificate may be needed. You may also need a one to involve your animal or animals in certain programs, clubs, or events.
