We can assist with paperwork and acquiring relevant permits, pre-travel vet checks, treatments, certification and official crate sealing; we will treat your pet as one of the family and ensure he or she is as relaxed and healthy as possible before the flight.

Dog and boy

For registered clients we offer advice on the veterinary requirements for pets, birds, zoo animals, horses and animal products to any destination in the world. We also offer template documentation to support any export procedures and access to a veterinary support line.

We work closely with the pet export/import industry – both with pet shippers and with airlines directly. We are happy to facilitate any request relating to the veterinary aspects of pet shipping but please note, we are not pet shippers ourselves but a team of veterinary surgeons and nurses focused exclusively on the health and welfare of every pet flying!
