How do I travel with my pet?


A pet on a trip is the best and sweetest companion, which is interesting, but you will have to know a few rules so that there are no problems with transportation.

Traveling with a pet in Russia by plane, train and car usually does not entail problems or difficulties. To do this, you must have a veterinary passport of the animal and a veterinary certificate of the Customs Union form No. 1, which can be issued at the regional veterinary station for the control of animal diseases.

The pet's passport must show records of current vaccinations and a rabies vaccination.

You can get your beloved pet a passport at any veterinary clinic.

Some airlines allow you to take a small animal with you in a hard or soft carrier, in which it must stay the entire flight. If the animal is large, then it will fly in the luggage compartment of the aircraft. It is easier on the train, you can simply buy out the compartment completely or purchase an additional seat in the reserved seat.

It is also necessary to obtain an international veterinary passport.
