Bringing Your Pet Food Across the Border
It can be tricky to get pet food across the border, especially those that say they contain “by-products.” See our page on “Prohibited Items” and you will note that pet food frequently contains some of these prohibited products.

The regulations for the U.S. and Canada are different and change very frequently so you may need to call the information lines for each country to be sure what the current rules are.  You may want to avoid this hassle by having a company like Amazon drop ship some food to your destination.

  • To bring food across the border it must always be in its original packages – do not carry it in plastic containers.  Any pet food in non-labeled packages may be confiscated.
  • The label should show where it was produced.
  • The ingredient list should be clearly displayed.
  • As of this writing, products containing sheep, lamb, or goat will not be allowed into the U.S.
  • Your best bet for getting food into the U.S. is to have unopened bags that state the food was made in the U.S.
  • When entering Canada, you may bring up to 20 kg, of pet food if it was manufactured in the U.S. or Canada. The pet that will eat the imported product must be with you.

  • The NUMBERS represent an IDENTIFYING CLIENT NUMBER used by the clinic or rescue organization.
  • *Exception: Tattoos done at D’Arcy’s ARC begin with ‘ARC’ rather than the letter code for the year.
