I've spent hours educating myself on the proper procedure of bringing our dog and I am hoping you can answer my few remaining questions:
1. We plan to cross in Laredo. Where do we "declare" that we have a dog? Is it in the customs portion of the process or do we have to go to a separate place? (For example, I know for the car we will have to go to Banjercito).
2. Does our dog need to be in a crate? A few websites mention this as a requirement. To me it seems this should only apply if you are flying with your dog, but the websites never specify. So, can our dog just be hanging out in the back seat of the car?
3. Are we allowed to bring enough dog food to last us the few days drive? I know normally you are not allowed to import food that is not factory packaged. Would an unopened bag of dog food be ok?
4. Can you confirm that the health certificate does not need to be translated into Spanish and does not need to be notarized?
Thank you all so much,
