• Is distemper vaccine required for my cat to travel in plane? It is required by UA, but it says if applicable.

    Hi Xiangmeng,
    I recommend that you contact the airline about this question. They will be best able to answer your questions on their policy. In addition many airlines will require a health certificate signed by a veterinarian prior to travel. There may be other requirements if you are traveling outside of the US. You should contact your vet to schedule an appointment prior to the travel day to make sure that all of the requirements are met.  

Need more information or advice?
