Thank you for this update...a trip to the vet to get a Rabies Vaccination Certificate is what we shall do. Our vet has only given us a credit card receipt for vaccinations and it has their dates/duration of vaccine.

It does not need a certificate, just a letter on the vet's stationary reflecting the dates of vaccinations, dated and signed by the vet. I got mine last week, he prints one and stamps his signature.

Someone mentioned in an earlier post about pet food. Pay attention. You don't want to throw away good food for your pet, or be put on the future "list," because you're now known as someone trying to sneak unacceptable food across the border. It has happened with friends of mine, totally unintentionally. But, they get the thorough search now, every time they cross the border.

Throwing away $15 worth of pet food before you try to cross the border may save you headaches in the future.

Just sayin'

As long as the food in in the original bag, opened- dry type in lieu of unmarked containers. I have not had any issue last 5 times back and forth with 2 dogs. I keep the dog food in a large cooler in back of truck, not in the trailer.

Maybe no problems, but the regs for importing dog food from Canada to U.S. are here: https://help.cbp.gov/app/answers/det...od-from-canada
Google "bringing dog food into Canada from US" to get the regs. Suggest you buy small amounts.

Found the following for importing into Canada from US.

Travellers may bring into Canada a personal import of pet food (limit of 20 kg), if the import meets all of the following requirements:
  • The pet food or product must be of United States origin and be commercially packaged.
  • The pet food or product must be in the possession of the traveller at the time of entry from the U.S.
  • The animal that will eat the imported product must accompany the traveller at the time of entry.
  • The imported product is fed only to the animal that accompanied the traveller into Canada.

I got them from toocrazyladies.com. They used to have a traveling booth but have now only work from home, AFAIK. They will make any sign, have plenty for RV clubs, etc.
