Three Things to Remember When Transferring Pets to Hawaii

Suppose you are from mainland America and you intend to transfer to its other islands such as Hawaii. In that case, you need to understand that you have an option to transfer your fur pets with you. However, in doing so, you need to make sure that you follow the various guidelines involving pet transfer so that you will not have a hard time traveling with your pets. This is, of course, if you are a responsible fur parent who doesn’t want to leave your pets behind alone. 

You need to primarily understand that while Hawaii is part of the United States of America, the state has its own set of rules and regulations, especially when you are planning on moving a pet to Hawaii. For you to follow these specific guidelines, here are some of the most urgent things that you need to prepare to make traveling with your lovable pet to Hawaii easier.  

  1. Vaccinations such as Rabies  

One of the most important considerations you need to make, especially if you plan to move a pet to Hawaii, is to ensure that they are completely vaccinated. That is, you need to understand that 27 weeks before the departure, your pet should already have two shots of rabies as needed. This is, of course, depending on the pet that you will be moving. This is important, considering that your pet may not behave properly during the fight and may carry a rabies disease. Therefore, these pets must be vaccinated at the soonest possible time.   

  1. Microchip Should be Working  

Another important consideration you need to make sure that you have for your pet before moving them to Hawaii is a working microchip. These are used to identify pets and should be in match with the blood sample of the animal. This particular technology is so small that it could be implanted within the body of your pet without necessarily having to undergo anesthesia. This is why you need to make sure that you get to have a microchip implanted in your pet if you intend to travel them to Hawaii.   

  1. Necessary Documents   

Finally, and most importantly, it would help if you made sure that all the necessary documents were prepared before the departure of your pet. You need to ensure that you have your pet’s vaccination certificates, health certificates, import forms, and other related documents. When your pet arrives in Hawaii, there will be no problem anymore.   

So what are you waiting for? Travel with your dogs, prepare all the necessary documents, and get to see the beauty of Hawaii while simultaneously being a good fur parent.
