My wife and I are returning to America in December, and will be bringing our pets, a cat and a dog we adopted here. Both pets are spayed & up to date in rabies shots, and have pet passports. My veterinarian here in [Taiwan] says that prior to being allowed to board a plane we'll need to get some sort of checkup / paperwork done. Could you give me more information on this? I am assuming that we'll actually have to bring the pets there to do this, right (since we live in [XXXX] it'll be a bit of a trek; do you know how time consuming the process is? The optimum situation would be if we could go in the day before leaving Taiwan, do our paperwork, spend the night at friends with the pets, and then head to the airport the next day.)
Anyone out there actually done this?
