Pet Travel Between the United States and England

Dear PetRelocation,

I am planning to move with my dogs from England to Arizona in mid-September. My dogs have passports and they have recently been vaccinated against rabies. I am planning to have then tested for tapeworm before flying.

I would appreciate any advice you could give on any other medical preparation needed or any suggestions for the most animal-friendly airlines.

Warm Regards,


Hi Natalie,

Thank you for your inquiry! Traveling with pets to the United States is a pretty straightforward process and we'd be happy to provide an overview of what to expect.

Here's a quick list of steps to take:

Specifically, we often use United and British Airways for pets traveling between the United States and the United Kingdom due to their pet safe policies, and you'll want to double check with the airline you choose to make sure you're in line with their procedures.

Hope this helps to get you started! Good luck with everything and please let us know if we can be of further service.
