Health Certificates for Jet-Setting Pets

At Kaua'i North Shore Animal Clinic we understand that traveling with your pet can be a confusing and complicated process. We are here to help you navigate the ins and outs of traveling both to and from to our beautiful island of Kaua’i.

We recommend every pet that is traveling by air or crossing state lines be accompanied by a Health Certificate (Certificate of Veterinary Inspection). Each state has different requirements for entry, our experienced team can help determine what your pet needs to make entry seamless. If you are traveling to Kaua’i from the mainland, the entry process is much more in-depth, please review our Direct Release page for more information.
