Question Health Certificate

Hello all,

my question is this...if crusing straight thru from STT to Florida will it be necessary to get a certificate for my dog before leaving the islands?

I know that health certificates are only good for 10 days so I hate to have to get a certificate here if I don't need I may fly from FL to my final destination which will require another certificate.

Any thoughts?

From STT to Florida - non-stop - you are not leaving the USA per se, and therefore nothing beyond the normal animal requirements of being at home is required. And basically speaking I have never heard of any US citizen and US boat being asked about anything to do with their pets. You already have shot records and vet bills and if everything is up to date there is no reason to have anything else.

the health cert is good for 10 days for leaving this country and work for re-entry according to my vet and the staff they use for this particular situation. i spent 800 dollars getting my cat ready for out of country travel, as i wasnt able to pinpoint my departure date ...just this past feb--the 10 days is for leaving this country after receiving he cert--is for use on return without need for another vet trip, according to them. more info is in the noonsite site.
