I was wondering if you could help us. My dad is currently working in Iraq (not military) and has bonded with a stray puppy.
What would we need to do to try and bring this pup back to the UK? This puppy is not part of a pack, is friendly and spends most of its time in the offices where my dad works. We know it has been done before but we are unsure who to ask. We would be able to get a vet check in Iraq (there is one that works with their guard dogs) but we don't know where to...Read More

So my dogs started in China, then went to the USA, and with PetRelocation went to the UK.
We had such a hard time going to the USA by ourselves, but getting into the UK was easy. A few hours after calling PetRelocation we were well on our way with having most of the paperwork done, vet appointments scheduled, and well -- on our way, so to speak.
My situation was unique. My wife and I live and work in China, and were in the USA only for the wedding. We brought our dogs and had to...
I was reading the requirements for traveling to the UK, and it says the pet has to have been microchipped before the rabies vaccine. My cat is fully vaccinated but not microchipped.
I would get the microchip before the move, but would it make a
difference that I got the chip after the rabies vaccine?
Thank you for your inquiry. Yes, this rule must be adhered to -- you must have the microchip implanted before you have the rabies vaccine administered...Read More
My partner and I are looking at getting two ferrets, but we are
very conscious that we are hoping to move to Japan for a year or so
in the next few years.
Could you tell me if it is possible to take ferrets with you to Japan from the UK and vice versa? And also what kinds of costs are involved if this is possible?
Thank you for your question. When researching international pet travel, it's usually a good idea to start the process by checking in with the...Read More
I need help. I have no idea where to begin in getting my cat to
my new home. I really just need specific advice on what airlines I
can use that will fly straight to Aberdeen. On the airport website
it says they accept animals but from everything else I've been
reading the only one I can find is in Edinburgh.
I'm so confused! I want this to be as stress free as possible but it's not really working.
Thank you for your question -- most pet owners feel stressed out at the...Read More
I've just learned that you can't have kitty litter inside the cat's travel crate during transportation. This concerns me greatly, as my cat has historically suffered from a urinary tract problem.
Are there exceptions? Are there absorbent fabrics that can be
used as an alternative? Any suggestions and advice will be greatly
Thanks for your question! Concerns about this particular aspect of travel are common (we all want our pets to be as...Read More

How do I get my sugar gliders to the UK? What is the process? I
heard they would die on the plane so I would like to ship them but
I don't know anything about this.

PetRelocation is now the only way I will ever allow my dog to travel! Moving from Chicago, IL to London was quite a process for my husband and I, let alone our dog who had no clue what was going on.
We contacted PetRelocation to help us with this process and could not have been happier with their service. They assisted us in the paperwork process, which was very lengthy and difficult in itself.
They not only helped us with the paperwork but were very reassuring -- they provided us with updates...Read More

I'm just wondering what I need to do documentation-wise to ensure Willie gets to move to the US from London as we corporate relocate back home. Also, I'm clueless about how to physically move him. Does he go under the seat, in a luggage/pet area or what?
