Pet Passport
If you are traveling abroad, specifically to Europe you may want to check the “PETS” which stands for Pet Travel Scheme. An initiative that started in the U.K, the Pet Travel Scheme is a scheme that allows animals to travel easily between member countries without undergoing quarantine. Pets get a pet passport which is a document that officially records information related to a specific animal. More information can be found at: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pet_passport.
