Remember, when you come to the Bahamas or when you leave, you are crossing international borders.  So, get started, get ready and make sure you: 
  • Plan early: 4 months ahead is a good time to start planning your trip
  • Know what to do: Talk to us by phone (242 698 7387) or email for an initial consult
  • Pet’s vaccination records: Make sure your pet’s vaccination status (especially rabies vaccine) is up-to-date.  If not, request an appointment with us to update them
  • Airlines: most airlines have their own rules about transporting pets. We know what they are. 

Domestic travel assistance

Domestic airlines require you to have your pet properly vaccinated and issued with a health certificate before travelling.  This process is less complicated than international travel.  We can issue health certificates for your pets. 

We want you to know that your pet is in good hands with our veterinary team.

Give us a call or request an appointment  online for a consultation with one of our vets about travelling with your pet.
