For most countries dogs and cats have to be vaccinated against Rabies at least 21 days before departure. It is also often necessary to have a Vet de-worm and de-flee 2 to 4 days in advance. Animals have to be micro-chipped before the rabies vaccination. All required before a health certificate can be issued.
