vet exams of pets prior to entry into Mexico

I have received some contradictory information as to how close in time a vet exam of a dog or cat needs to be prior to entering Mexico. In 2016 I drove to Mexico and no customs person in Canada, US or Mexico asked to see the dogs "papers" I obtained 20 days prior to entry into Mexico. This time I am flying and my schedule is subject to the arrival of a new passport. Any info on the current regs for pet exams prior to entry into Mexico would be most appreciated,

Secondarily, I am also wondering if it is possible to get a van type vehicle instead of a cab at the Zihua airport. I plan on traveling with a 100 lb pooch, his kennel and a few boxes necessitating more space than the regular Nissan cab in Zihua. gracias

I don't recall seeing any vans at the airport, but every time we've used the transportation outfit there, the vehicles have been full size American cars.

Thanks for both replies, I am hoping someone in Zihua has a van or a pickup that can come to the airport so I can pay them to transport me to my place in Las Mesas ,above Zihua.

Officially, the pet papers must be issued within 10 days of travel. Check with the airline, most of the requirements are actually the airlines, not the country's.

Yes u r correct! Pets from Canada or USA need vet check within 10 days of flying. We also the last few years get one one from Dr Campos in Zihua before we leave after 5/6 months. No problema!!

Should not be problem getting a van or suburban at the airport. We always got one when four of us would bring our luggage and golf clubs down. I think Rob has the pricing on his transportation page.
