    We are interested in maybe taking a cat and a big dog overseas sometime in the far future, to maybe the USA or Europe. What kind of vaccinations would be required for these countries for our pets? And if they already have been vaccinated before, would booster shots be advisable instead?

    Hi Shalyn, it really depends on which country you’re visiting as each has their own requirements. But most require you to get a rabies vaccination for your pet prior to departure. Hope this helps!

    Definitely rabies, no matter where you’re headed. For most foreign countries, your pet’s rabies vaccination must be at least 30 days old but less than one year old. That means if your dog or cat received a 3-year vaccination more than a year ago they will need a booster to meet the timing requirement. You’ll have to provide a signed rabies certificate.

    Cats and/or dogs may need additional vaccinations, too, depending on the destination country.
