VCA Pleasant Bay Animal Hospital

Animal Quarantine Approved Hospital

Our hospital is an Animal Quarantine Approved Hospital. The Center for Disease Control (CDC) has strict regulations about the importation of dogs, cats, turtles, monkeys, and other animals capable of causing human disease. Pets taken out of the United States are subject, upon return, to the same regulations as those entering for the first time. If your pet requires quarantining after international travel, we are here to help. Basics of international travel are that the CDC does not require general health certificates for pets entering the United States. However, health certificates may be required for entry into some states, or may be required by airlines for pets. You should check with officials in your state of destination and with your airline prior to your travel date. All dogs (pets and service dogs) must have a certificate showing they have been vaccinated against rabies at least 30 days prior to entering the United States. Cats are not required to have proof of rabies vaccination for importation into the United States. However, some states require vaccination of cats for rabies, so it is a good idea to check with state and local health authorities at your final destination. Hawaii has unique entry requirements for dogs and cats. Your pet may qualify for a 5-Days-Or-Less quarantine or direct release at Honolulu International Airport after inspection. Dogs and cats not meeting all of the specific 5-Day-Or-Less program requirements must be quarantined for up to 120 days upon arrival In Hawaii.
