I was so happy I purchased the Pet Passport for Mexico as the laws had changed in last couple years from bringing in dogs. Last year the custom agent barely let me in the country as I was missing a ecto and endo parasite vaccination. He said it will soon be compulsory. So this years trip I purchased the pet passport Mexico and it was a wise decision for such a reasonable low fee. My Veternarian had to spend more time filling in forms but all the instructions were there. I had to email PetTravel a couple of times and received very prompt response and answers. Being a Canadian I first received American titles papers but they fixed this right away. Arriving in mexico I was very nervous as I saw in online chat rooms so many pet horror stories and complications due to the new rules. Customs would have to call a vet and on and on. That certainly was not my case. The customs agent looked at all my papers and laid them down and said ‘this is how I wish people would travel with their pets. This paper works is exemplary and fantastic. He stamped the papers, took what he needed, photocopied my passport and we were in. Thank you Pet Travel Store!!

There wasn't really any complaint regarding the info.and forms you sent. The information seemed quite through for Mexico in general. However we were traveling to Loreto on the Baja and they are VERY specific especially regarding parasites in dogs and cats. So we did have some hassles with the Mexican customs. Just so you know....
Without the up-to-date info about bring animals into Mexico we would not have had the tick and tapeworm certificates. We got a "good girl" from the Customs Officer. Others had to wait for a veterinarian to come to the airport.
the documents are wonderful
Very easy to understand and easy to use.
I went to Mexico for 3 weeks and had no problem going in and out of the country. Everything went smoothly and fast. These papers are great and come just as described in the discription! Thank you so much!
