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.
