All animals should have the following vaccines

before being accepted for Air Transportation.

Puppies and kittens can only fly from the age of 8 weeks.

Combination Vaccine:  5-in-1 for Dogs & 4-in-1 for Cats.

The animal is accepted for travel within 24hrs of the booster vaccination  being administered
provided they have a good history and the annual vaccination has not lapsed.

Animals older than 3 months must be inoculated against Rabies, this should be done annually

Certain 3 year rabies vaccines are adequate, provided the vetbook stipulates the vaccination is still
within it’s validity period.

There is a waiting period of 14 clays (fly on day 15) for ALL 1st time and expired vaccinations & a 24hr waiting period for ALL booster vaccinations. This includes Rabies, 5-in-1 & 4-in-1 vaccines.

An animal that is 8 weeks old but younger than 3 months would require a valid rabies vaccination booklet for the female parent, they do however, need their own updated combination vaccination (5-in-1)

In cases where the puppies and kittens have been rescued and there is no record of the mom —The animal requires their own rabies & combination vaccination, a 14 day waiting period is applicable.
