Pet Transport: Quarantining Cats and Dogs

When your pet cat or dog travels to another state or another country, you'll need to consider the destination's quarantine requirements.

Choosing a specialist pet transport company will not only ensure your pet is transported in air-conditioned comfort to and from the airport, but equally importantly, that all paperwork is done and quarantine requirements met.

Ask your pet transporter about quarantine when moving your pet interstate or overseas.

A reputable company will have an AQIS (Australian Quarantine Inspection Services) accredited vet, who will examine your cat or dog before departure and sign the appropriate forms.
