Veterinary Paperwork for Dog Transport to the UK

Wednesday, November 30, 2016 by Pet Travel Questions

Dog Travel to the UK: Can You Use More Than One Vet for the Paperwork?

Hi PetRelocation,

Are you allowed to start the pet transport process with one vet and finish with another? I live in Los Angeles and I would like to drop my dog off in Charleston, SC with my family so I can be with my husband sooner.

They would finish the process there. Is there a rule against that?

Hi,

What forms do I need? Where can I get them and print them to take to the vet? And what does each cat need to have by law?

Thank you,

daisy and dolly"PetRelocation made a stressful move so easy!"

When I found out I had the opportunity to move to London, UK to advance my career, I was excited but incredibly nervous.

Moving without them was not an option.

Before I even accepted the job offer, I began researching options to move my pets abroad. To say that I was nervous...

Sunday, September 25, 2016 by Pet Travel Questions

Parrot Travel to EuropeHello PetRelocation!

I am going to be moving to Europe in about a year or so to be an au pair. So far I could be ending up in either the United Kingdom, France, Belgium, Switzerland, Austria, Denmark, The Netherlands, or Norway.
