If you want to travel with your pet, you need to plan ahead. Since each airline and/or country is different, you will have to contact the airline or embassy/consulate where you are going to find out what you need to do. Though every airline or country has different requirements, most require a health certificate that is done by a USDA-accredited veterinarian. Luckily, we have a USDA-accredited veterinarian. If you are not a client, you need to make sure you bring your pets’ records in with you to the examination. We also do health certificates for horses, cattle, goats, etc.
You will always need a health certificate and proof of vaccination. You may also need a microchip and blood tests. Many countries require that your pet get treated for parasites prior to travel. You may also need certificates for the airplane ride.
Since each country is different and we can’t stay up to date will all of the changes in each one, it is important that you call ahead and know what you need. Then, we will make sure that your pet is all ready to go!

Cryosurgery provides a quick and highly effective solution for removing small masses and treating distichiasis. The procedure can usually be performed during your normal office visit. The application is mostly done with a handheld device that sprays nitrous oxide directly to the affected area of the skin. Veterinarians have successfully treated dogs, cats, horses, ferrets and even birds with cryosurgery. The results speak volumes and the risks are minimal, especially when compared to traditional methods of surgery.
