Animal health care prior to export

Animals that are old, in poor health, pregnant, lactating, have a history of illnesses, are on medication or are injured are not suited to shipping or import quarantine. When transporting your pet, please consult the veterinarian for advice to determine whether the animal will be able to cope with transportation abroad.

There is a possibility that your pet will contract a contagious disease during shipping or quarantine. For this reason, please make sure the animal has up-to-date vaccinations prior to transportation. (In the case of dogs, the recommended vaccinations include: a multivalent of distemper, infectious hepatitis (adenovirus type 2 is acceptable) and parvovirus infection; parainfluenza; leptospirosis; coronavirus infection (recommended) etc. In the case of cats they include a multivalent of feline viral rhinotracheitis, feline calicivirus and feline panleukopenia etc).

It is also recommended that you treat your dog to exterminate all parasites prior to departure (using a treatment designed to get rid of ticks, flea parasites, nematodes and tapeworm).
