Veterinary Health Certificates

Certificates of Veterinary Inspection/CVIs

GlobalVetLink takes the guesswork out of Certificates of Veterinary Inspection.

Veterinary Health Certificates, or Certificates of Veterinary Inspection (CVI), are official documents required by law when transporting animals domestically. A vet health certificate for travel helps prevent the spread of diseases by verifying that an animal has been inspected for illnesses by an accredited veterinarian and was found to comply with movement regulations. The GVL Compliance Assistant platform assists practices in preparing veterinary health certificates online.

GlobalVetLink provides Certificate of Veterinary Inspection CVI solutions for domestic travel for all species, as well as International Health Certificates and Hawaiian Health Certificates for international and Hawaii pet travel.

How long is a health certificate valid?

In most cases, a CVI is valid for 30 days after the date of issue. In cases of disease outbreaks, CVIs may need to be re-issued sooner than 30 days.

Time Savings with GlobalVetLink

“The time it takes us to put these documents together is cut in half. Our doctor’s time is very valuable. They have sick pets in the clinic, and the fact that they don’t have to do much with these documents is invaluable. They can just log in, click a button, do their exam, and be on their way. Time is the biggest savings we’ve found with the platform!”
