We want to make travelling as stress-free as possible for all our patients. See our travel checklist (below) to help with your travel plans. If travelling to a different country, be sure to check their rules and pet specific requirements as far in advance as possible so you can plan accordingly and have no problems at the boarder. Also, be sure to let us know of your travel plans so we can make appropriate recommendations for heartworm/parasite prevention, parasite treatment and prevention, travel anxiety or travel sickness for your cat.
