When an animal, dog, cat, horse, bird, goat, etc., travels across states lines, internationally or by air, a health certificate is required.  We can advise you of what exactly is required and we have the forms here.  Our vets do the health certificate exams.  Please call with questions regarding specific animals.


We are capable of providing Washington State and Idaho State health certificates for small animals and small farm animals.

Please remember to plan well in advance (4+ weeks) when your pet(s) will be traveling internationally.  Each country traveled to has their own entry requirements that must be met with proper paperwork completed and endorsed by the USDA/APHIS.


When traveling interstate with equine, farm animals, or exotics, each State can have varying requirements to meet for entrance.  For your convenience, our clinic can contact the state you are traveling to and determine what is needed for compliance.  

As of Jan 1, 2015 there are new equine requirements for 6 month health certificates for entrance into Montana.  Please contact our clinic or visit www.liv.mt.gov for more details.

As of April 6, 2015 equine traveling ONLY between the states of Idaho, Oregon and Washington are now exempt from having a current coggins; however, a current health certificate is still needed.  If you are traveling in these states and are attending a show, fair, and/or rodeo, these events may still require a current coggins.
