Shipping your pets to Canada

It is advisable that dogs and cats are identified by either microchip or by permanent tattoo. Animals must be shipped in containers built to IATA specifications which are the correct size for them i.e. they must be large enough for the animal to stand up without touching the top of the box, lie down comfortably and be able to turn round within the box. There must also be a fixed water container inside the container with a means of filling it from the outside (funnel).

In order to travel to Canada from the UK, your pet will need a valid rabies vaccination given in the two years prior to departure, and a fitness to fly certificate from a vet within 10 days before departure we can offer a cargo option along with other services including collection, providing an IATA compliant kennel, boarding and fitness to fly certification
