I will be living about half time in St Croix and half time in the states. I just got a new puppy, one that will remain quite small (5-6 pounds) so can easily fit under an airplane seat. That part is not a problem.
My concern is that I read online that a dog coming into USVI must have had a rabies vaccination with 6 months. That would mean my tiny dog would have to get a rabies shot twice a year! I don't understand why a 3-year vaccine would have to have been given within 6 months of coming into USVI.
Does anyone know if this 6-month rule is actually checked or enforced? I've flown into STX several times already (before I got this puppy) and didn't notice anyone checking paperwork for pets.
