I am totally up the creek without a paddle with no clue of what is needed to relocate my cats. Do they need vaccinations, and if yes, what sort? Would there be a very simple way of relocating them other than using very expensive companies that specialize in this?
Any information you could send my way would be appreciated.
Have a great day :)
We're happy to help shed some light on your creek-sans-paddle situation. Unless you've moved a pet before, there's no reason you would even know where to begin (which is completely understandable).
To start, please take a look at the pet import requirements for the United States. Your cats will need a vet health certificate (for the airline) stating they are healthy and fit to fly. A rabies vaccine is technically not required, but since you might want or need to have your cats vaccinated once you're settled in Arizona, it wouldn't hurt to take care of this before you travel and have that documentation handy, also.
Furthermore, here are a few basic pet travel tips that we suggest looking over. It's important to choose a pet-friendly airline and to help your cats become as acclimated to their travel crates as possible in order to help ensure a smooth trip.
It's not necessary to hire professionals to handle this trip and many people choose to book the flight, take care of the vet visits and paperwork, etc. on their own. If you do decide to enlist support, however, we'd be happy to tell you more about our door-to-door services.
Hope this helps! Just let us know if we can be of further assistance, and good luck with everything.
