When it comes to traveling out of the U.S. with pets, veterinarians are challenged with helping their clients understand the various requirements for the destination country. Each country has its own unique rules and regulations around animals, and it’s time consuming to research what those include.

“There are unique risks with international pet movement that present challenges for veterinarians,” says Dr. Brenda Flaming, practicing veterinarian in Ames, Iowa. “The last thing we want is for our clients to get stuck in customs with their pets, but that is a concern.”

Even though travel is at a minimum right now due to the impact of COVID-19, when animal movement resumes and clients are taking those long awaited trips, we want veterinarians to feel secure in providing international health certificates.

That’s why GVL has launched international pet movement compliance in the GVL platform.

“Our customers have often expressed how confusing, stressful and time consuming international health certificates are,” explained Stacey Noe, product manager at GVL. “So we set out to provide the industry with a simple solution for compliant international pet movement that saves time and removes uncertainty from the process.”

With the GVL platform, users can easily create and share valid documents for international pet travel (canine/feline) from the U.S. Built-in country requirements help ensure compliance and reduce errors, and our expert support team provides help every day from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. (CDT).
