  • Traveling with birds

    I am traveling by RV from the US through Canada to Alaska and return. What are the current requirements that must be met to bring my 20 year old green cheeked conure with me. I did not take her the last time we made this trip because USFWS and the USDA would not return my calls or emails.

    You can find information about traveling with your bird through Canada here: http://www.inspection.gc.ca/animals/terrestrial-animals/imports/policies/live-animals/pets/birds-us/eng/1326661204161/1326661329675. Pet birds imported the USfrom Canada through any of the designated U.S.-Canadian land border ports are subject to veterinary inspection at the port of entry. The importer must contact the port at least 3 to 5 days prior to entry in order to assure the availability of a port veterinarian.

    You should verify that your conure is not subject to CITES regulations.

        Hi Elen - Nice video, but should include characteristics that the airlines require such as a waterproof bottom and adequate ventilation. Also, not sure if your carrier is able to squish down to fit under the seat in front of you. We recommend flexible, soft-sided carriers for this reason. We have all airline-compliant pet carriers in our store (http://www.pettravelstore.com/pet-carriers/) also including an excellent carrier for birds.
