NEW Import requirements

I am writing to inform you that the Department of Agriculture is changing the import requirements for dogs and cats, and their semen. The new import requirements are only available to importers whose animal(s) will be imported on or after 3 February 2014 (except for those imported from New Zealand). The key change to import requirements is a decrease in the minimum number of days in post-entry quarantine, from 30 to 10.

*Import and quarantine requirements are dependent on country of origin.

Please see http://www.daff.gov.au/biosecurity/cat-dogs  for further information.*

Changes to UK Entry Requirements

Effective from 1st January 2012, the UK entry requirements for Dogs, Cats & Ferrets will change.

Dogs, Cats & Ferrets will no longer be required to have had a Rabies Blood Test and wait 6 months before travelling to the UK (if travelling from an approved country like Australia).

The new rules mean that these pets can simply have a Rabies Vaccination, wait 21 days, and then travel straight over to the UK.

These changes are positive and remove the stress and costs involved in doing the Rabies Blood Test, and the long wait before the pet is eligible to arrive into the UK.

For further information on these changes, please contact your Dogtainers Consultant on 1300 13 52 52

OUR HAPPY CLIENTS

Hi Michelle,

Just wanted to provide some feedback regarding my recent use of Dogtainers services. I have relocated from Brisbane to Perth, and my two cats Harry and Buffy travelled with me on Virgin Australia on Tuesday 6 August. Their longest trip prior to this has been a short car ride to the vet and back, so naturally I was very apprehensive and concerned as to how they would handle a cross-country plane ride! From the moment I spoke to a representative on the phone to book them in, until my babies were delivered to my new house in Perth, I was extremely impressed with the professionalism and attention to detail that Dogtainers provided. I am so happy to have my kiddies with me, even more so seeing them arrive healthy and in good spirits. I will have no hesitation in using Dogtainers again! Thank you so much for your excellent care.

Kind regards,
Rebecca (+ Harry and Buffy)
