TRAVELING WITH YOUR PET OUTSIDE OF THE USA?

APHIS website

The Department of Agriculture's Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) launched a new website in July of 2016 that is dedicated to helping travelers and veterinarians easily determine country-specific requirements.  The site provides information about taking pets from the US to other countries and bringing pets from other countries into the US.  It has all of the information needed for the following pets: dogs, cats, birds, ferrets, rabbits, rodents, hedgehogs and tenrecs, reptiles, and amphibians.


ALTERNATIVE MEDICINE/THERAPIES

Mary Clouse, Animal Communicator

"Animal communication is to the animals what sign language is to the hearing impaired. It is a non-verbal form of expression that opens the door to a new understanding of man’s relationship with animals, and the connection between all living creatures. It is not a special gift given to a few, but rather an ability to have an open mind and a willingness to learn to hear with the heart and see with the mind’s eye."
