Today, I would like to share how to send a puppy to Santiago, Chile.
This time, Ginny the Maltese girl was traveling from Seoul, South Korea to Santiago, Chile by United Airlines Pet Cargo service.
Very first thing you need to consider is getting a rabies shot at 3months or older.
Only puppy that vaccinated with rabies at least 30days prior to its arrival is allowed.
So, you should vaccinate your puppy at least 30days prior to its flight schedule.
Here are required documents that should be ready in both your language and Spanish:
1. Official health statement in both language – you may need to get notarized by notary public and apostille stamp on Spanish document if it is not originally issed but translated.
2. Vaccination Record – Rabies
3. Ticks and Tapeworm Treatment within 30days of entering Chile
4. Pet Microchip – Not required but reccommended
If you are ready with all of those required documents, then you need to prepare her shipping cage.
It should be hard cage with bolts. The cage must be equipped with two feed bowls and a water bottle that can be hung on the door.
Also, need to provide couple packs of her food that can be provided during her long long flight.
However, United Cargo does not allow anything inside of the cage other than your naked puppy.
Even I prepared her cage with lots of comfy things including a bed and toys, she only could fly herself in the cage.
This is how the cage look like after packing.
Ginny’s going to fly from Seoul to San Francisco, San Francisco to Houston, and then Houston to Santiago.
It’s very long Journey for 4months old teacup Maltese girl.
Hopefully, I can see her with her new family in Santiago, Chile Soon!
