Cat and Dog Relocation & Shipping to Shenzhen


An Introduction to Shenzhen

Shenzhen, a vibrant city in Mainland China, is situated just across the SAR border from Hong Kong. It is a key part of the Greater Bay Area and renowned for its thriving technology and manufacturing industries.

Many people relocate to Shenzhen to pursue opportunities in these sectors. If you’re considering moving to Shenzhen with your pets, rest assured that Ferndale Kennels is here to assist you in making the process as smooth as possible.


Understanding the Regulations for Pets Entering Shenzhen and China

The regulations for pets entering Shenzhen and China vary depending on their country of origin. To avoid quarantine, cats and dogs entering China from non-designated countries must meet certain requirements.

These include microchipping, two rabies vaccinations administered no sooner than 30 days apart, and a rabies titer test prior to entry. The titer test can be conducted at the same time as the second rabies vaccination or at a later date. The test results must indicate a level greater than 0.5 iu/ml and remain valid for 12 months from the date of the blood draw.

Because China is a country that was previously high in Rabies cases, it’s essential that your dog tests negative before entering to protect the animals already living in the area.

The percentage of stray dogs in China also means that a microchip is a necessity. Alongside their collar, the microchip proves ownership and means that, should your dog or cat become lost, there’s a much higher chance that you’ll be reunited.

Preparing Your Pets for Travel to Shenzhen

When it comes to preparing your dogs or cats for the journey to Shenzhen, it is essential to prioritise their health and well-being. This involves consulting with a veterinarian to assess their fitness for travel and obtain necessary vaccinations or medications.

We also recommend crate training your pets in advance to help them become accustomed to the crate and feel more comfortable during the travel process. Our expert team can assist with crate training tips to help get your pet acclimated to the crate environment. They should begin to see it as a safe space and will, therefore, be content when you ask them to enter to take the flight.
