Border Patrol and Your Pet

Hello Dr. Shaw –

As you probably are aware, the Center for Disease Control recently changed its regulations regarding dog imports from both Canada and Mexico and rabies certificates are no longer required.

That said, we do caution pet owners that State requirements may be enforced at the border, and a current rabies vaccination and a health certificate issued within 30 days of travel are strongly recommended

The rules for bringing your dog into the United States depend on where you are coming from.

We have not heard of any other recent changes to regulations regarding import to Mexico or Canada; however, we will retain your email in the event that we become aware of any new requirements.

Best regards,

Susan H. Smith
