Our veterinarian team frequently conduct health checks and rabies vaccinations in preparation for oversea travel, and bat post-exposure procedures. Dr Tracy Sparks also performs testing and treatment work for the government which is required by importing countries prior to the admission of your pet. Pre-export preparations include health examinations, blood testing, administering vaccines or medications, and issuing necessary medical documents to export your pet.
As every country's import requirements are different we recommend you visit the MICoR website for details and contact the clinic well in advance of your intended departure date. Although owners can coordinate their pets travel arrangements, many clients find it helpful to do this through a pet transport company.
