    Dog food

    Has anyone ever had a problem trying to bring dog food through USA from Canada. I will use the Buffalo airport to get to Aruba with my new puppy and someone told me I will be asked at the boarder if I have dog food with me.

    THX FOR ALL HELP

    What brand of food are you feeding your dog? They do have a fairly good selection in Aruba.

    Thumbs up

    At any U.S. entry point they always ask if you have any type food or plants with you.
    Things like fresh fruit, plants, ...... are a no no.
    Usually unopened canned, packaged, ...... items are OK.
    https://help.cbp.gov/cgi-bin/customs...364936&p_sid=R
    That site should answer all your questions. Just click on it.
    "The Department of Agriculture has recently relaxed rules for travelers arriving from Canada with food products involving some meat products. Beef and game products are now allowed entry. This includes frozen, cooked, canned or otherwise processed beef, veal, venison, elk, bison, etc. Hunter harvested game, including deer, moose, wild sheep, goats and bison is admissible from Canada for the traveler's personal use if accompanied with a hunting license, tag or equivalent permit. Meat products from domestic lamb, sheep and goats is still prohibited entry from Canada."
    Guess you could show them your unopenned item and see if it passes inspection.

    Thank you very much for that info. I want to bring a few bags because I am not sure how much it will cost there on the Island. I buy Royal Canin Puppy.

    There is a Pet store on the street behind Lings that might carry it.

    As to prices.... I didn't think they were too bad. Better than carring the extra weight and paying for over weight or extra bags.

    Good morning,

    I use Royal Canin also. I do hope they have it as I do not want to add the extra weight. I will be needing a months supply. . . . .

    See you on the island. We go on the 17th. . .
