As of August 1, 2024, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has implemented new regulations concerning the entry of dogs into the USA.

As your trusted veterinary clinic, we are committed to providing you with the necessary support to help you navigate these new guidelines smoothly. It remains the pet owner’s responsibility to ensure compliance with all regulations set forth by the CDC and any other relevant authorities.  

The CDC has created a helpful tool called the DogBot to help you determine what rules apply to your dog based on the travel dates and where your dog is traveling from. 

Launch the DogBot

As the new travel protocols are being developed, we do not have access to further information at this time and will share this once it becomes available. We do encourage microchipping and ensuring Rabies vaccination is up to date if travel is planned.

Should you have any questions or require further assistance, please do not hesitate to reach out to the CFIA.
