Crossing the Border

When bringing your pet in from Canada, you will need to go through customs.  The following URL's will take you to the Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS), which regulates the importation of livestock, and the Center for Disease Control (CDC), which regulates the importation of dogs and cats.

AHPIS:  http://www.aphis.usda.gov/import_export/animals/animal_import/animal_imports.shtml

CDC:  www.cdc.gov/animalimportation/dogs.html

Basically, a dog or cat requires a rabies vaccination to cross the border.  Horses and other livestock require a health certificate (this includes birds).  Exotic animals such as lizards, snakes, and turtles, may fall under the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES), which have their own regulations.
