Things to consider before moving pets to PanamaAugust 28th, 2019 | Moving Pets To Panama
It is everyone’s dream to find the house that they always wanted, but there are times when you cannot get that dream house near the place where you live. In such scenarios, you may need to relocate to a different country. It goes without saying that if you have pets, they will be relocating as well.
The entire process of relocating with pets from one place to another is very time consuming and complicated. Most of the time goes into trying to find and understand all the rules and regulations at the destination. That is why it is always recommended to hire a pet transport company during your relocation. However, there are a few questions that you will have to ask yourself and be clear about, before proceeding.
Factors that play a part in moving pets:
Can they – Can’t they?
The first and foremost thing that you must ask yourself is, can your pets travel, or is it better that they don’t. While many pet owners would not even think twice before taking their pets with them to their destination. Some, evaluate their decision by wondering if their pets would be able to handle the change in atmosphere. To come to a perfect decision regarding this, you need to keep in mind all the laws regarding pet importation in your destination country. Next, if you are taking your pets to a country that has a climate that your pets might not be able to endure, take note, and decide wisely. Age also plays a very important factor when it comes to your decision.
Overseas veterinary care
It is quite common that your pets are used to getting the best veterinary care at your current residence. Before moving, make sure that you find veterinarians in new location. The last thing you want is your pets to get sick right after reaching their new home and not have a veterinary clinic where you can take the ill pet. Choose an area where that are families with lots of pet so that you can be confident that they have found good pet care. In case you are unaware of how to check for the best, you can contact your pet transport company for information. When you are moving pets to Panama, a pet transport company will be able to help you find the best veterinarians in the area.
Documents, vaccines, and much more
Relocation with pets doesn’t only entail factors like the weather of your destination nation, or the most qualified doctor for them; it involves a lot more. All countries have different rules when it comes to the import of pets, and you will need to abide by them. The documentation that you need will vary from country to country, and you have to keep up with all such laws. For example, while bringing pets to Panama, a pet passport is not necessary, but the proof of current vaccinations is required.
Find out an airline that will accommodate your pets and talk to them about the temperature they set in the cargo area. Also make sure that your pets are crate-trained beforehand. Check for the quarantine rules and regulations as well. If you have more than two pets and the airlines refuse to accept them, don’t worry.
