How can I transport my pet Boxers overseas?




Hi Romel,

Check out the pet import requirements for Ecuador. You'll see there that your dogs will need microchips, full vaccinations, and International Health Certificates, all issued by a USDA-accredited veterinarian. The microchip implantation record, vaccine certificates, and International Health Certificate will need to be sent to your local USDA office for approval.

Additionally, each of your dogs will need an airline-approved travel crate. Because Boxers are snub-nosed (brachycephalic) dogs, they need crates that are one size larger than normally required by their size. Use our guide to picking the right size crate to determine what size your dogs would normally require, then purchase crates which are one size larger.

Finally, to ensure the safest possible pet air travel, be sure to book your flight to the US with a pet-friendly airline (we often recommend United). Pet-friendly airlines have policies in place which are specifically aimed at keeping pets safe and comfortable during travel.
