Most of the airlines require a Health Certicate from a vet. What services are needed and what's the cost?
Only your regular veterinarian (who must be certified by the USDA in order to provide this service) can answer those questions. The answers will depend upon the age and species of the patient and the location that you are traveling to. Many States have different requirements. Your veterinarian can also answer the questions about the related costs. Bear in mind, SNAP-NC, does not offer this service since we are a spay-neuter group only.
How do I notify the correct authorities about animal abuse or neglect that I have witnessed?
If you witness animal abuse or neglect, please contact your local humane society, animal shelter, or animal control agency immediately. In most areas, those agencies have the jurisdiction and capability to investigate and resolve these situations. They rely on concerned citizens to be their eyes and ears in the community and to report animal suffering. If you are not sure where to call or if there is no animal welfare agency of that sort in your community, call your local police department or sheriff's office.
Send your “Ask The Pet Vet” questions via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
