Pets into Canada

All animals are subject to veterinary inspection on arrival in Canada. If evidence of suspicion of disease is found, the animals may be refused entry into Canada. Dogs and domestic cats, over 8 months, entering Canada from the United States will need certification, signed by a licensed veterinarian, that they have been vaccinated against rabies during the preceding 36 month period. This also applies to visitors wishing to bring a dog or domestic cat into Canada from a country other than the United States.
