Do you provide services to assist in getting pets to this country? How difficult is it to bring the birds?

Hi Marnie!

We are happy to help relocate pets to Ecuador. First, here are a few details that may help give you an idea of your traveling situation: prior to your move, you will need to obtain health certificates for your cats as well as proof of a few vaccinations, including rabies. You'll find the basic guidelines for moving pets to Ecuador here.

For the birds, it looks like you'll need a U.S. Origin Health Certificate authorized by the USDA and endorsed by an approved veterinarian, as well as fulfill the necessary CITES paperwork for moving birds as Umbrella Cockatoos are protected by CITES. You'll find more detailed information about moving pets to Ecuador on the USDA's page here. As we've seen before, moving birds can be tricky. With plenty of advanced planning, however, you can enjoy a smooth trip.

Good luck with your travels, and let us know if we can be of service!
