State Health Requirements
Each individual state sets the health requirements which must be
met by animals coming into their state. For example, animals
transported across state lines into North Carolina require a
certificate of veterinary inspection completed by a licensed and
accredited veterinarian. This certificate is completed by a
veterinarian at the origin of the shipment. State veterinarians
determine the requirement for such entry.
The major purpose is to safeguard the health of animal
populations. These state requirements are subject to periodic
changes; therefore, it is impossible to provide a current set of
requirements of each of the states.
