Approved Rabies Serology Laboratories for Testing Dogs

Important testing information for importing dogs into the United States:

  • Rabies Serology Test results must be in English or accompanied by a certified translation.
  • Serology results must be drawn a minimum of 30 days after the dog’s initial vaccination and at least 45 days before the date of importation.
  • Test results are valid for 1 year from the date the sample was drawn.
  • Serology test results are only required for dogs with a foreign-issued rabies vaccination certificate entering the United States from a high-risk country for rabies. Without these test results, the dogs will be required to undergo a 28-day quarantine with a reservation made before arrival to the US  after revaccination at an approved animal care facility.

If you are applying for a CDC Dog Import Permit, provide rabies serology test results from one of these laboratories:
