• I scheduled an appointment because I need to fill some forms so I can travel with Yoyo from Miami to Brazil. I scheduled 4 days prior to the travel date. I have the forms that Brazil asks. Does he have to make any exam that has a due date prior to travel? Thanks in advance

    Hi Ana,
    I recommend that you contact your local veterinarian well in advance of the travel date about this question. The ability to fill out an international health certificate will depend on the individual doctor’s accreditation with the USDA. In addition depending on the forms, tests, and vaccines needed it may take more than 4 days to complete this process. Your pet will need to be examined as part of this process. Starting early and partnering with your local vet can help to prevent any complications from arriving on the day of travel.

Need more information or advice?

Contact your nearest Banfield Pet Hospital to schedule an appointment today.
