If you can somehow send me your contact info, I can let you know if any surprises come up with my dog's journey that would be good for you to know... here's hoping there's none - I am nervous enough already!
Just realized today is Feb 22. Hope all goes well. Good luck.

Our dog is a Boxer who is "special needs"... he was diagnosed with cancer last year and given rough prognosis. After lots of work he is SUPER healthy and has been approved to be imported! I have had only great experiences using IPTLAX so far! We are shipping the fur kids over next week... I'll let you know how it goes!
Hello! Please let us know how was the trip for your fur kids!!!

Hi All!!! Thank you for all of your concern! We just now got our internet set up so I apologize for the late update! The fur babies are doing FABULOUS!! They arrived in great shape, we have a Boxer so I was very concerned about his stress level during traveling which can result in breathing problems sometimes, or so I was told. Titus, our 4 year old boxer, is in great shape! Because of his cancer I hired a private vet from Great Western Vet hospital to come out and examine him more thoroughly after his arrival and they said he looked very, very healthy and very happy! Tina, our 7 year old cat is doing well too! She's apparently made a few attempts at escape but her caretaker there has been wonderful and very loving towards her -- I think she likes her spunk!

We are allowed to visit them up to 3 times a week at the Sydney quarantine which is plenty because it's is very expensive to drive out there each week! We go about 1-2 times a week! Titus has begun to have a very close bond with his caretaker which i read before is to be expected. He doesn't seem as interested in us as he is in her at this point when we come to see him, of course shes the one with the food and treats! Haha! She adores him and treats him like he's her own, which makes me feel very at ease. We know he'll come back out of it once they get out - which is April 1st.

I will keep you all posted with any updates I can offer -- IPTLAX was wonderful! James was tons of help and very kind and patient! We were even able to visit them after their domestic flights arrived in LAX. James helped us get out to the pet boarding place and everything! What a great company! No complaints AT ALL!!

Alls well then LizzBlizz and re your cat, just to make him feel at home when he gets home and so not wanting to roam too much, if you've had anything shipped over that he will be familiar with, be good to have it about somewhere.
We had a cat once that we lost enroute when it escaped from our vehicle between western NSW and southern highlands, searching time being limited but my wife sent an article to the main local newspaper in area where we lost her and about a week or so later a friend of some guys at a building site who had befriended her was visiting the site and said that's the cat that was in the newspaper and sure enough it was and so a Greyhound Bus O/N trip in a petbox later we picked her up and she wasn't getting out until we got home.
Tigger had always liked running up some steps of a bunk ladder to snooze on the top bunk and that was exactly where she headed as soon as we had her in the house and after a couple of days in a second lot of strange surroundings she was fine.

Thumbs up All went well

Hello All,
My baby got out from the Sydney quarantine on April 3rd (after 30 days). She is doing well, but sleeping a lot. I think she is just tired of the whole ordeal and glad to be back home with us.
FYI, we hired dogwalks(dot)com(dot)au to walk her and exercise her during her stay at quarantine. They were posting pictures of her on their website. We were glad that we decided to go with them. They did a really good job.

Hope all went well with everyone else.

Thank you again for sharing all the information.

Cool pet transportation

Hey!..I've recently read about a few pet transportation services both in USA and Australia.
They are Australia's leading pet travel experts and worldwide service provider for transporting pets around the corner or around the world.
Ph:1300 668 309

Even these are both nation and worldwide service providers. Based in USA.

Users Flag! From usa

Hi, I know this discussion is from last year, but I'm trying to find some more information abut moving pets to Australia...
Can somebody tell me how long did it take you to organize everything? I might be moving very soon and I'm a little bit worried I won't have enough time to organize transport and get all documents for my Cat..
