Many countries have strict regulations regarding international pet travel. You'll find an overview of bringing Fido to many popular international destinations below. No matter where you're going, you should contact the embassy or consulate of the destintion country to confirm pet travel regulations, obtain all of the necessary paperwork (such as health certificates and documentation) regarding your pet's travel, and contact your local veterinarian to ensure your pet is in compliance with foreign health regulations. And finally, don't forget to check reulations on bringing Fido back to your home country too. Quarantine rules may apply even if your dog has only been gone a short time.
