    USDA Health Certificate

    Traveling with your pet – both domestically and internationally – takes special planning and preparation. Be sure to check with your destination for any special pet requirements well in advance of your trip, and call us to schedule time for any necessary paperwork, examinations, or testing prior to your departure.

    Domestic Travel
    Requirements for domestic air travel within the Continental US usually include vaccination certification and a current health certificate, which can be completed by any Veterinarian on staff. Airlines generally require certification to be completed within ten (10) days of departure. Check with your airline for specific requirements.

    International Travel – USDA Certificate
    There are a few steps involved with travelling internationally with your pet. Do your research and plan ahead. Each country is unique and requirements change. Most countries require special documents which must be completed by a USDA-accredited veterinarian. Contact your destination’s consulate or embassy for the most current requirements.

    Most of the time, these requirements are simple to fulfill, but other times it is fairly complex. Once you have a list of the specific requirements, schedule an appointment with one of the USDA-accredited veterinarians at Animal Health Center. Bring your pet, your pet’s medical records (if not a current client), and all of the required forms.

    The USDA-accredited veterinarians at ANIMAL HEALTH CENTER will review the forms, carry out the necessary tests, perform any necessary pre-travel treatments, and complete the required forms for you. We handle regular and expedited domestic/international export.  Not every veterinarian on staff has USDA accreditation, so ask to see the appropriate USDA-accredited veterinarian when you make an appointment.


    Requirements at foreign destinations may include:
    • Specific health certificate documents for a particular country
    • Proof that vaccinations are current
    • International Microchip Identification, which may be either a 10- or 15-digit microchip, depending on the country’s standard
    • Blood tests for infectious diseases and rabies titers that are below or above a minimum level
    • Treatments for external and internal parasites given within a day or two of travel
    • Completion of tests or procedures as long as 6 months prior to travel
    • A certificate of acclimation and a health certificate for the airline carrier
    Because there are hundreds of countries, each with different and often changing requirements, we do not know the requirements for each country. You must contact the authorities of the country you are traveling to and ask them to provide you with the necessary information and forms that need to be completed prior to arrival in their country. Often this information can be obtained on the Internet and printed out to prior to your visit.

    General Travel Information

    The stress of travel can panic some pets. A leash can help calm the nerves and remind your pet that you are in control even in an enclosed carrier.

    If your pet does escape, make sure your most current contact information is attached to your pet’s collar at all times. Should the collar fall off, a registered microchip is an additional identification safeguard.

    We recommend always securing your pet with a leash to a collar when not in a the carrier.

    We generally do not recommend sedation or tranquilizers for pets that travel. Discuss this with the veterinarian when your pet is examined.

    The ANIMAL HEALTH CENTER AT THE VETERINARY VILLAGE wishes you and your pet a safe and happy trip!


    • This is Fanny and me. We, or I guess she really, are now in the fourth week after her CCL operation almost to the day that her other knee was operated on a year ago. Both by the wonderful, magical, and caring Dr. Haroush. Last year, pre-pandemic, with a looming scare, a big price tag and months of rehab in front of us, Dr. Haroush, Jose and the rest of this magnificent team treated us immediately, helped us in more way we could count all with the kindest and most knowledgeable of treatments. Fanny felt like it was another home and we felt like we were welcome to be as neurotic as we could be about our dog. She healed up quickly and then like clockwork which Dr. Haroush said might happen, it did again, the other knee. Now it was even worse with the Pandemic in full swing, money really tight, time tighter, it felt so huge and totally overwhelming. Did Dr. Haroush come to the rescue? He certainly did. Again, she is healing nicely, we are healing along with her and I would never send her to another vet as long as she lives. Dr. Haroush and team are spectacular in their wisdom and care. Along with treating Fanny it was like he was treating me for all the insanity we are all feeling right now. Everyday and beyond the care was present. And most of all Fanny feels loved and taken care of. What more could you ask for. I wish it was all this simple.

    • Dr. Haroush doesn't only look after your pet as a professional, but he sees your pet as one of his own. With his extensive veterinary knowledge and fully-equipped hospital, he is able to give you peace of mind when it comes to your pet. The Animal Health Center really is the best place to take care of your pet's problems. I wouldn't go anywhere else. Unlike large veterinary hospitals that deal with a myriad of pets hastily, this private practice gives you reassurance that your pet will be taken care of exceptionally on an individual basis.

    • When our Labrador Max became seriously ill during non-business hours, our local vet referred us to Bedford Katonah Vet Center.  This was a terrible experience, as they gave us no diagnosis but charged us several thousand dollars.  We took Max home against their advice and searched for a new vet. Thank God we found Dr. Haroush! He took Max immediately and saved him.  Dr. Haroush became our family vet and we tell everyone we know about him.  He is a tremendous Doctor and a great man!

    • Thank you for your dedication to finding treatment for Atlas.  Your generosity for finding the best plan of care for Atlas’ aggressive and extremely rare cancer helped us get through the last year.  We hope we have many more healthy and happy years to go.  We are so very thankful.

    • I want to again thank you from the bottom of my heart for your patience and compassion and above all you expertise in diagnostic skills and the subsequent surgery you preformed on Ebony.  You may not remember, but Ebony Star suffered for more than half of her life (4 years) before I found your name one day on the internet when I was desperately looking for a veterinarian that could help her.

    • Thank you so much again for literally saving my (beloved) Dominic’s life. We were so distraught when we brought his sick nearly lifeless body in. But, through your skill, talent, & expertise, you helped bring him back to health. Dominic is definitely his old self & receiving lots of love. Each member of your staff treated us in the great professionalism & courtesy. And your follow up through phone calls was really excellent.

    • Thank you very much for saving Luna’s life. Even with her disability, she is very happy and content.“Luna” loves attacking her toys, and running all over the house with her brother and sister. Luna is great as stalking and surprise attacks on the other cats. Thank you for your knowledge and compassion “for the animals”. I appreciate everything you and your staff has done for me and giving Luna a life she deserves.

      –Luna & Sandra
    • We cannot thank you enough for saving Cayden. He is such a huge part of our lives and couldn’t imagine being without him. You have made it possible for him to be a puppy again and to enjoy his special life with us. It was such a gift to see him be reunited with his brother, Romeo and how happy they’ve been since his return. Again, thank you for taking such wonderful care of Cayden, we couldn’t have asked for more.
