Pet Transporters Los Angeles /
LAX To Germany:
One of the most important things you must have
in order when
shipping your dog, cat or
pet to Germany are your papers from a
Veterinarian. Your pet will not be
allowed to move with you if you do not
have the proper documentation which can
only come from a vet. So, find a vet.
Most military bases have one. If yours
doesn't, look in your local phone book.
Your Dog, Cat or Pet will ill not be allowed to enter Germany without a
microchip. Have your vet insert a microchip and register
that microchip online. Generally, microchip registration
takes place through the company who created the microchip.
Germany requires an ISO standard microchip with has 15
numbers. Make sure this is what you request when getting
your pet microchipped. If your pet is already microchipped
with a US Spec 9 or 10 digit microchip, your pet may need
the ISO 15 digit chip also or you can carry your own
scanner. Please see the Resources section for where to
purchase your own scanner and a general website for
registering a microchip.
Your pet must have a passport-Form EU998-to enter Germany.
The passport should show a rabies vaccination by a licensed
veterinarian at least 21 days before the travel date. The
passport should be in German and in English. Please refer to
the Resources for a link to purchase the form or ask your
vet where you can obtain one. Take the form to your vet.
They will fill it out. Take or mail the form to the
APHIS/USDA vet office in your state. They will sign and
stamp it. Be sure to call the office to find out about fees
as each form has a fee. For information about where your
office is, please refer to the Resources link.
Your pet will also require an International Health
Certificate to travel to Germany. The health certificate
should include the pet's name, the breed, color, age of the
pet and its country of origin. The certificate should also
include your name, address and phone number. The certificate
should say the pet is parasite free and healthy. It should
show all inoculations including the type, the maker and
batch number if possible.
Your pet should also have a name tag on its collar which
includes the pet's name, your phone number, the Micro Chip
number and the name of the company that manufactured the
You pet will require a kennel of the right size. All dogs,
except those that are very small will require passage in the
cargo hold. This requires an approved kennel by the size and
weight of your dog. If you cat or dog is small enough to fit
under the seat in front of you, you can use a soft-sided
kennel. If your cat is not, it will also need an approved
carrier. Please see the Resources section for a list of
approved kennels by size.
There are also restrictions on when your pet can fly
according to the weather. Your pet cannot travel in the
cargo section of an airplane if the ground temperature is
below 45F. There are waivers that your vet can give you for
special circumstances. If the temperature is below 20F, pets
will not be allowed to travel regardless of a veterinarian
signed form. The same kind of restrictions apply with heat.
Most airlines will not transport an animal in the cargo hold
if the actual or forecasted temperature is above 84F.
