moving 70lb dog to CR need help ASAP

Jump to last reply

Hi I have been looking for an affordable way to get my dog to costa rica and the easiest, most simple option is to hire a pet traveler but I can't afford it.

How can I do this on my own? what all do I need to bring my dog to costa rica? what will the cost look like?

So far I understand I need a broker, and vet paperwork but the part that has me lost is all the legal papers for importing a pet

If someone could give me AS DETAILED INFO AS POSSIBLE on what exactly I need to do I would SOOO much appreciate it.

I am leaving in 2 weeks and I'd really like to bring my pup!

Thanks

P.S. (looking to spend less than $2000 flight included)

    It is complex and not cheap especially a big dog...

    If you are planning to be there a while cheaper to drive down.

    Association of Residents of Costa Rica (ARCR), a moving advisor or a relocation specialist no less than two months before your move.They will always have the most current info. Note: Often relocation firms outside Costa Rica are not current on laws and enforcement. Costa Rica specialists and moving advisors are usually a better bet.If you follow these rules and do the final check back with ARCR, you will PROBABLY breeze through customs and immigration without any problems.Cats and dogs are not quarantined. You walk right through customs and immigration with the proper paperwork. You will need a certificate from your vet, and this form MUST comply with the US Dept of Agriculture format. Your vet should know all about this. Mine did. If he/she doesn't know, get another vet because THIS is critical stuff. Wrong form... no pets or long quarantine.This paperwork may also need to be validated by the CR embassy in the US nearest you. Currently it does NOT, but at any time and without notice, this can change. Check with ARCR for the current rules.Shots (except rabies!) must be current within 30 days of transporting the animals. One day over? No pets.Rabies shots must be over 30 days but less than one year.Your vet will know the immunizations required for shipping pets internationally. If he/she doesn't, get another vet. This sounds cold and it IS. Your vet MUST know his stuff.
