Map 7001 Dr. Sarah Gottschalk, a California veterinarian, issues health certificates for small animals traveling out of state on a regular basis. She does it for clients traveling with their dogs, as well as rescue organizations and breeders.
The procedure is standard: One of her technicians obtains a Certificate of Veterinary Inspection (CVI) from the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), also known as Form 7001. Gottschalk investigates the animal and issues the CVI if everything appears to be in order.
This straightforward system hit a snag in January, when Gottschalk discovered that some states no longer accept the forms. The issue is that the forms, which were originally designed in a multi-page carbon-copy format and were only available to state-licensed, USDA-accredited veterinarians, are now available for anyone to download from the internet. The PDF forms are vulnerable to illegal and fraudulent use, according to state veterinarians.
“From my firsthand experience, the states that refuse to recognize 7001s have legitimate security concerns,” Gottschalk said. “However, the transition to a more secure form of health certificate is a shambles.”

We will give you a form to fill out prior to your hospital visit when you make an appointment. This will include important information that must be provided before the AHC can be issued. We may need to contact a laboratory to confirm blood results in certain cases.
If you’re taking your dog, cat, or ferret from the UK to another EU country, you’ll need an animal health certificate. Different rules apply if your pet is traveling to a non-EU country (for example additional documentation or blood samples). Government rules on which countries this applies to can be found at www.gov.uk/take-pet-abroad.
A consultation for an Animal Health Certificate costs £110* (this includes reviewing and finalizing all of your documents). Any additional vaccinations or prescriptions will incur additional costs). A microchip costs £16.28 and needs to be implanted only once. The cost of a Rabies vaccination is £50.40, and it must be repeated every three years to continue traveling under the Pet Travel Scheme.

If you’re moving your pet from the United States to another country, you’ll almost certainly need an International Health Certificate, also known as the USDA APHIS Form 7001. This form is frequently requested, and it is one of the most sought-after documents for people who want to transport their pet to another country.
The 7001 is issued by USDA-accredited veterinarians and must also be approved by the USDA Veterinary Services office in the corresponding state. All export documents for pets leaving the United States are overseen by state and regional Veterinary Services offices, which ensure that the veterinarians issuing the documents, including the 7001, are certified and filling out correct information.
To issue health certificates, USDA Veterinary Services offices do not need to see pets; they only look at the paperwork after it has been completed. That means you’ll have to check with your local veterinarian to see if they’re certified. Most veterinarians know whether or not they have this accreditation off the top of their heads, but if you’re unsure, the USDA Veterinary Services office closest you can double-check your and your veterinarian’s accreditation statuses.
Regulatory issues in the run-up to dossier submission
Organizations transporting animals out of state for adoption must have valid certificates of veterinary inspection (CVI) for each animal transported.

CVIs, also known as “health certificates,” are governed at the state level. Because paper USDA 7001 forms are difficult to trace and increase the risk of fraud, many states are moving toward requiring an electronic CVI and will no longer allow them. All ASPCA Animal Relocation team program partners will use electronic CVIs starting in January 2021.
Electronic CVIs have a number of benefits, including the fact that they are simple to edit, read, search, shop, and share, as well as the fact that they save time.
Completing CVIs, ensuring accuracy regarding animal entry requirements, using suitable forms, and submitting CVIs to the appropriate origin and destination state officials are all responsibilities of USDA-accredited veterinarians.
The organizations that provide electronic animal health certificates for interstate movement are listed below, along with an overview of their services. Some of these businesses may provide discounts if you are a non-profit or a government agency, or if you already have a relationship with them. The ASPCA does not endorse or recommend any of these companies, and we are not affiliated with any of them. This information should be discussed with the USDA-accredited veterinarian who performs your CVIs.
