Pet Travel Tips for Puerto Rico

Dear PetRelocation,

What type of vaccinations are required for my dog to enter into Puerto Rico? Also, what is the cost for your services?




Hi Christine,

Thank you for your message! We would be happy to assist you with some guidance. For an idea of the rules and procedures, please review the pet import requirements for Puerto Rico. (The rules for pets entering Puerto Rico are the same as they would be for dogs traveling between various United States, so proof of an updated rabies vaccine will be required.)

If you've never traveled with a pet before, it may be helpful to read over these top pet travel tips. Here you'll find information about choosing a pet friendly airline, crate training your dog, and generally formulating your expectations of what is needed for a smooth and safe pet relocation.

If you need further clarification, you're free to double check the details via the USDA website. Finally and of course, you're welcome to contact PetRelocation for a consultation. We provide door-to-door pet transportation services around the world, and with a few more details, one of our Specialists will be able to provide more information about your move options.

Hope this helps to point you in the right direction during these early stages of your Shih Tzu's move, and we hope to hear from you soon!
