Dog Health Certificate No Longer Needed?

Hi all-Is it true that a Health Certificate/Proof of Vaccination is no longer needed when entering Mexico with a dog? The USDA website states that, but the Mexican Consulate site does not. Many thanks in advance to anyone who has recently crossed with their dog.

I needed it for my airline on the way to Mexico & home to US. I also needed it in customs, I would not leave home without it.
Ive also been caught in the middle of Mexico changing their ‘rules’ on pets, my advise is to come prepared.

Hi Vicky
My vet told me i did'nt need the same documents . When I arrived here the airport vet didnt give me my importation papaer that you need to get your dog home . That weird guy at the airport didn't know what to do with out the paper docs and I asked him to look it up at the website and then he just acted like he could not understand my spanish. It was super frustrating and then he let me out of the airport with the dog and didn't give me the paper documents I needed to leave with my muneca.
I was here in May of last year and have a copy of that import papaer so will leave with that .I am lucky to have copied my documents. So my advice is to continue using the old forms and have all the old rabies indo ecto parasites etc. letter until your dog gets a passport.

The USA and Canada may have their rules and regulations, but the only ones that matter here in Mexico are Mexico's.

We arrived in January and they took all of my paperwork and gave me back theirs, like they've alway done. Also, for the first time in 11 years were told to leave la ropa with the mascota. He was headed south, so we just went north.B-)

While confrontation should not be necessary, you cannot be prohibited from walking in the federal zone with your pet dog. The Mexican Constitución does not allow it, and I keep hoping someone will provide a video of them being harassed by these people so I can make it go viral. This is the whim of less than a handful of people including two property owners (by inheritance) at La Ropa. When we had a meeting a few years ago including beachfront hotels, lodgings, residents and restaurant owners, everyone except about two people was AGAINST banning pets from the beaches, all the beaches, including La Ropa, Las Gatas and La Madera. If they want to ban STRAY DOGS from the beaches that's a separate issue and they need to keep it separate.
