Health Certificates
Health Certificates

We are happy to assist you with your domestic and international Health Certificates.  With information, help and advanced planning from you along the way, our team will do everything possible to make sure this is a successful process!

DOMESTIC:

There are a few steps required to prepare your pet for travel. Please follow these steps to ensure we can make your travel preparation, exam, and paperwork experience as efficient and stress-free as possible.

We first recommend checking the USDA website for interstate travel:https://www.aphis.usda.gov/aphis/pet-travel/interstate-pet-travel. Different states may have different requirements for entry, and some (for example: Hawaii) require advanced planning to meet the requirements and avoid quarantine.

Next, please contact your airline to see what specific requirements they have regarding the timing of the health exam and paperwork. Most airlines require the exam for travel to be within 10-14 days of travel, but some may differ. In addition, some airlines have additional forms that will need to be completed by a veterinarian. You will be responsible for bringing those documents with you to your exam. If you need to reschedule your exam based on the airline requirements, please call as soon as possible.

Within 48 hours of making your health certificate appointment, we ask that you complete a form with all the information we require to fill out your travel paperwork. Download the form following this paragraph and save it onto your computer. Open the saved file, complete the form with all pertinent information, and email it back to adobeinfo@gmail.com. In the subject line of the email please put: Health Certificate Info for [your pet’s name, your last name]. By having this information in advance, it will ensure we can properly fill out the paperwork and it will allow you to collect all the necessary information with enough notice.

Please note: During the summer we often book out 2 weeks in advance and often health certificates need to be done within 10 days of leaving, so please confirm the timing and schedule in advance since we don’t do health certs as urgent care or emergency appts.

If we have not given your pet’s vaccinations or completed the FAVN blood test* (if applicable) here at Adobe, we ask that you also email those records to us in addition to the form. If you do not have those records available, please contact your previous clinic with enough notice to receive the records before your appointment time.

INTERNATIONAL:

Please follow these steps to ensure we can make your travel preparation, exam, and paperwork experience as efficient and stress-free as possible.

We strongly urge all clients traveling internationally to visit the USDA website for international travel as soon as they know they are traveling with their pet overseas: https://www.aphis.usda.gov/aphis/pet-travel/take-pet-to-foreign-country. Every country has their own requirements for entry and most require advanced planning to meet the qualifications and avoid quarantine. Additionally, USDA endorsement of the health certificate and any other required documentation is required for most international destinations.  Adobe is not currently able to submit international health certificates electronically to the USDA for digital endorsement. It is your responsibility to understand what is required for your destination to ensure you meet deadlines and have all the necessary treatments done. 

Next, please contact your airline to see what specific requirements they have regarding the timing of the health exam and paperwork. Most airlines require the exam for travel to be within 10-14 days of travel, but some destinations have different requirements (refer to the USDA website for this information). In addition, some airlines have additional forms that will need to be completed by a veterinarian. You will be responsible for bringing those documents with you to your exam. If you need to reschedule your exam based on the airline or destination requirements, please call as soon as possible.

Within 48 hours of making your health certificate appointment, we ask that you complete a form with all the information we require to fill out your travel paperwork. Download the form following this paragraph and save it onto your computer. Open the saved file, complete the form with all pertinent information, and email it back to adobeinfo@gmail.com. In the subject line of the email please put: Health Certificate Info for [your pet’s name, your last name]. By having this information in advance, it will ensure we can properly fill out the paperwork and it will allow you to collect all the necessary information with enough notice.

Please note: During the summer we often book out 2 weeks in advance and often health certificates need to be done within 10 days of leaving, so please confirm the timing and schedule in advance since we don’t do health certs as urgent care or emergency appts.

If we have not given your pet’s vaccinations or completed the FAVN blood test* (if applicable) here at Adobe, we ask that you also email those records to us in addition to the form. If you do not have those records available, please contact your previous clinic with enough notice to receive the records before your appointment time.

*FAVN: The FAVN test is required by many rabies-free countries or regions in order for dogs and cats to qualify for a reduced quarantine period prior to entry. Some of these regions are Hawaii, Japan, Korea, Australia, Guam, New Zealand, and some islands in the Caribbean. Always check with the destination authority to verify pet importation requirements. The FAVN test is a blood test that Adobe sends out to a specific laboratory. Results often take over a month to get back, so please plan accordingly.

Urgent Care/Emergency

IF YOUR PET DOESN’T HAVE A SCHEDULED APPOINTMENT: URGENT CARE AT ADOBE ANIMAL HOSPITAL

Welcome to Adobe Animal Hospital!

We know that pets get sick at all times of the day and night. We know that it isn’t always possible to get an appointment as soon as your pet may need to be seen. In these situations, we are happy to see you and your pet on a walk-in basis. This hand out should help you understand what to expect if you walk in to Adobe without a scheduled appointment.

What happens when I arrive? When you arrive, the Client Services Representative will check your pet into Urgent Care.  Depending on the severity of your pet’s problem, a triage technician may be asked to check your pet. 

  • Pets with severe injuries or dangerous medical conditions are typically rushed back to our treatment area. 
  • If it is determined that your pet’s problem is mild or not urgent, you may be encouraged to make an appointment.  If this is the case, that’s great news! Please schedule an appointment if at all possible. This helps us see the sicker patients more quickly.
  • If it is determined that your pet is not critically ill but should be seen in the next few hours, we will ask you to take a seat in the waiting room until one of our Veterinarians is able to see your pet. 
  • Urgent, but not critically sick pets are seen in the order they arrived.

How long will it take before a Veterinarian examines my pet?

When seeing walk-in patients, it can be difficult to predict how many will come in, and how long the wait time might be. Our goal is to see patients within 1-2 hours of when they check in.  We ask for your patience if you are here at a time when many other pets need to be seen. We recognize that your time is valuable and are working as hard and as fast as we can to take care of you and your pet as quickly as possible. 

DURING BUSY PERIODS SUCH AS WEEKENDS, HOLIDAYS, MOST OF THE SUMMER, AND EVENINGS BETWEEN 5 PM-12 AM, EXPECT TO WAIT 2-3 HOURS FOR YOUR PET TO BE SEEN.

How much does it cost for my pet to be examined by the Urgent Care Veterinarian?

  • From 7 AM to 5 PM, the Exam Fee is $175, or $200 if your pet is critically ill and rushed back to our treatment area.
  • From  5 PM to 11:45 PM, the Exam Fee is $200. 
  • From 11:45 PM to 6:45 AM, the Exam Fee is $240. 

What does the Urgent Care Exam Fee include?

The exam fee includes the Veterinarian discussing your pet’s problem with you, examining your pet, and coming up with a medical plan that addresses your pet’s illness. The exam fee does not include diagnostics or treatments such as x-rays, bloodwork, or medication to go home. Please feel free to ask your Veterinarian for an estimate of the cost of your pet’s medical plan.

I have many concerns about my pet. Will the Veterinarian address all of them?

The Urgent Care Veterinarian will address medically urgent problems.  Unfortunately, the doctor typically will not have time to discuss unrelated, long term concerns such as behavior problems or chronic allergies. We are happy to schedule a follow up exam for your pet so you can have those issues addressed. 

My pet is not a dog or a cat. Is there a Veterinarian available who sees Exotic species?

Most days, we have doctors on duty from 7AM to 7PM that see Exotic species. If your pet has an urgent need to be seen today and none of the doctors seeing walk-in appointments treat Exotics, we will see if one of our exotics doctors can fit you in. If a doctor is fitting your pet in, please expect to wait at least one to two hours. If it is unlikely that one of our Exotics doctors can see you in a timely manner, we may recommend that you be seen at another veterinary clinic. We have a list of area Veterinary Hospitals that treat Exotic species that we can refer you to.

Can I choose which Veterinarian will see my pet?

Unfortunately, we are rarely able to accommodate requests for a specific Veterinarian if you arrive without an appointment. You are welcome to let the front desk know your preference. The Client Services Representative will relay your request but your preferred doctor may simply not be available.

If you were told that a particular Veterinarian was seeing walk-in cases at a particular time, that does not guarantee you will see that doctor. We often have more than one doctor at a time seeing urgent care patients. It is also very common that the scheduled doctor is working with a critical patient and other doctors have stepped in to help. 

Does Adobe provide Preventative Care like Vaccines, Health Certificates, and Annual Exams on a Walk-In Basis?

We reserve our walk-in services for patients whose medical condition requires them to be seen before a scheduled appointment is available. We do not see Annual Exams, Vaccine Appointments, or do Health Certificates on a walk-in basis.

Exotics

We see more than just dogs and cats at Adobe!  We have doctors that will see your birds, chickens, chinchillas, hamsters, guinea pigs, snakes, turtles and more!  Call us today and see which of our doctors can help your feathered, shelled or scaled pet and to make sure we have a doctor available to see your specific type of pet! Our hospitals also have special lab machines and equipment for these pets.

We are also very happy to report that there have been no new cases of Newcastle Disease in any chicken in the Bay Area for over 120 days! This means we can see chickens at both locations for any conditions again.  Thank you to all the chicken owners for working with us to keep the hospital and Bay Area Newcastle free!

Video Visits

Wait Less, Save time and still get the best care! See an Adobe doctor from the comfort of your home or while you guys are out for a hike. Use a simple app to do a video call to talk to the doctor, explain what is going on with Fluffy or Fido, and get recommendations right over the phone. Save time by avoiding crazy Bay Area traffic, bypass stuffing your cat in a carrier and circumvent anxious wait times in the exam rooms. And still get the great, veterinary care you expect from Adobe.

Visit the Video Visit page for more information on how to make this happen!

At Adobe, you are part of your pet’s medical care.   We do many of our vaccines and treatments in the rooms so you can be with your pet.   If you need additional diagnostics or an ultrasound done to help better understand what is happening to your little one, you can often be there with them.   And if your pet needs surgery or to be hospitalized, you can visit your pet from the morning to the late hours of the evening, every day of the week.   Be part of your pet’s medical care.

Cat Friendly Practice
Cat Friendly Practice

We are a Gold Certified Cat Friendly practice which means we built our hospital with your cat in mind!  Some things we have done to make sure you and your cat have the best experience possible:

  • Feline Only Waiting Room away from barking dogs
  • Entire hallway of exam rooms dedicated to cats
  • A cat only ICU with unique cat features
  • Staff trained in low stress handling techniques for cats

And since we know cats don’t like to come to the vet in the best of circumstance, we offer video visits so our feline patients can get medical care in the comfort of their own home!  See our Video Visit Page on how to schedule a video visit today!
