Anyone who has a pet knows that it is very difficult to leave him or her behind for an extended period of time.
The following info sheet is intended for all pet-owners (teachers or other professionals) who plan on making the move to the Middle Kingdom.
While it is certainly possible to take your pet to China, we want you to ask yourself three questions before you continue reading.
1) Is it in the best interest of my pet if I were to take her/him with me to China?
2) Will I be staying in China for a year or longer?
3) Am I willing to foot the bill and go through the trouble of getting the right vaccinations and paperwork for my canine or feline friend?
If the answer to any of these questions is no, bringing your pet might not be the best idea. The process is costly and cumbersome, but if you love your pet it is definitely worth it.
