Pet Travel Question: Rabies Vaccines for Puppies

Name: Dennis
Number of Pets: 1
Pet Type: Dog
Pet Breed: Labrador
From: USA
To: Germany

Our puppy is five weeks old. Moving him to Germany would require different vaccines at least four weeks before the travels, but since he is so young, it's not possible to vaccinate him that early. Are there any exceptions for young puppies concerning the required vaccinations?

Thanks in advance,

Hi Dennis,

These are the pet import requirements for Germany. You can double check with the proper government offices, but yes, in our experience you'll need to wait until your dog is old enough to be vaccinated before making this trip.

Talk to your vet about any safety issues you're concerned about, and contact us if you have any more questions. Good luck and happy travels!
