Moving Pets Internationally; Canine Flu Vaccinations

Jan 23. 2019

During relocations abroad, our customers often opt to move more than just their household effects and vehicles. Pets are an important part of the family and many wish to move their animals with them.

We are able to recommend reputable and experienced international pet movers to move your pets safely to your new destination.
There are many considerations to take into account when taking pets with you abroad and a lot of planning to ensure all the requirements are met prior to leaving the country.

For example, some pet moving organisations are advising that several countries now refuse dogs unless the import documents prove they have been vaccinated for canine influenza and they advise pet owners to vaccinate their dogs against canine influenza before relocation or travel of any kind.

The condition is said to be easily prevented by visiting a vet for two doses of the canine flu vaccine which is administered two weeks apart. Furthermore, flu in dogs can be potentially dangerous and a very communicable respiratory disease.

Speak to a reputable international pet mover about what is involved in the process and what documentation etc is necessary to prove that your dog has been successfully vaccinated and undergone all the veterinary procedures to allow entry into your chosen country.

If you would like further information on recommended pet moving companies please call us on 01902 714555 or email sales@burkebros.co.uk.  Details on our international shipping services for household goods, personal effects and vehicles can also befound here
