What are the requirements to relocate my pet from Kansas City to Russia? Are microchips required? What paperwork and vaccines do I need?
I really appreciate any info you can give me.
Sure, we'd be happy to help; here is an overview of the pet import requirements for Russia. To summarize, yes, your dog will need a microchip (implanted before the rabies vaccine is administered), and the rabies vaccine must be given at least 30 days before departure and less than one year before departure.
A few vaccinations are also required, including Hepatitis, Distemper and DHP (we recommend doing the combined DHLPP vaccine and Bordatella, as well).
You'll also need to obtain a Rabies Certificate and an International Health Certificate, and these forms will need to be stamped by the USDA. For your reference, here are a few frequently asked pet travel questions to help you form a picture of the overall pet travel process.
