Public Service Announcement:
Our helpful readers continue to update us all on what rule enforcement changes are taking place around Mexico.

New Enforcement of Regulation re: Bringing Dogs into Mexico via Air

Airport officials at the airport in Puerto Vallarta are enforcing a regulation requiring dogs ( not sure about cats) require the following:
PRIOR to arrival, your dog must have be treated against internal and external parasites by a licensed veterinarian and the products used must be reflected on the health certificate.

Dogs must also have been treated for ticks shortly prior to entering the country. ”

This seems pretty self explanatory.

We’d appreciate hearing from readers if this change is being enforced nationwide.

Happy Trails,
