Travelling With Pets

150 150 PVC

Different locations in and out of Australia can have different health risks or requirements for your pet. Make sure they are protected with preventative medications and relevant certificates.

Give your local Peninsula Vet Care a call to discuss travelling with your pet.

When you travel with your pet, they may be exposed to other health risks or diseases that are not present on the Peninsula. Here are some common preventative measures:

  • If you are traveling North, please call us to make sure your pet is protected against heartworm and has tick prevention to avoid a deadly encounter with paralysis ticks.
  • If you are traveling to Tasmania, all pets need to be given tapeworm tablets, along with documentation by a veterinarian prior to travel. This is similar to if your pet is traveling overseas.

If you and your pet are planning on traveling overseas, then you will need to ensure that they are vaccinated and tested for any diseases that are prevalent in those countries. Peninsula Vet Care has several vets experienced in preparing your pet for your travels, including:

  • Dr. John Willems (Rye)
  • Dr. Gordon Watt (Mt Eliza)
  • Dr. Nichola Richards (Dromana)
  • Dr. Carol Crowther (Mornington)

If you plan to travel overseas, then give your local Peninsula Vet Care hospital a call. We can make a booking for you with one of our vets. It is best to start this process early as the vaccinations and testing requirements can take several months to complete.
