State Rabies Laws and US Cat Import Rules
Could you please tell me if there are any vaccinations required for my cats' trip to the United States?
I understand that they need a healthy pet certificate 10 days prior to the fight, but what else might happen in this case? Also, would they have to be put in any kind of kennel for observation upon arrival?
I would greatly appreciate any and all information you could give me on this!
Thanks for your inquiry!
Here are the pet import requirements for the United States. There is no quarantine upon arrival, and you're right, you do need to have an International Health Certificate issued by your vet showing the airline your cats are healthy and fit to fly. We also recommend that they be up to date on their rabies vaccine.
If your cats aren't used to traveling, we suggest reading over these cat crate-training tips as well as these frequently asked pet travel questions. You'll also want to contact a vet as you get settled in your new home to make sure you're following Colorado cat regulations correctly regarding vaccines, etc.
