Exporting my dog from Netherlands to Australia

Hi All,
I am looking at exporting my 1.5 year old Jack Russell Terrier "Mowgli" to Australia later this year. I read through the DAFF website, which I must say is very extensive and when I read it feels very overwhelming. One of the first things I need to get done for him is a RNATT test, which tests for Rabies. Could anyone please advise contact details for a government veterinarian and laboratory? I do wish to get these tests done as early as next month, so in order to reduce the time he spends at the quarantine once in Oz. I am planning on going to Australia at the end of August this year and I do wish to have these tests done soon.
Any help from you would be much appreciated.
Sisko

Bringing dogs has even more requirements than I had to deal with bringing my cats. http://www.australiaforum.com/visas-...guide-usa.html
You want to get that RNATT ASAP if you are intending to bring them in August, they must have 5 months before he comes and then is in quarantine for a month. The longer you leave it then the longer he must stay in quarantine, which you seem to be aware of.

Sorry I don't know about vets in your country.

Good luck with it

Kttykat

Hi Sisko!

Try and find a vet in The Netherlands who has done this before.

When I was still thinking of flying my cat over (he ended up staying with a beautiful family on a beautiful farm who loved him like he was their child, and I felt he was just as well off there as he would be with me, if not better, without the huge hassle and changes of evironment) I asked my veterinarian in Utrecht and she said she had done it before (prepare an animal for transport to Australia) and she knew specific ways to make the process go faster because of this. They had done certain extra shots which had speeded up the process.

I didn't ask because she was talking about a dog and I was talking about my cat, so it didn't seem relevant to me personally to ask further what exactly she had done.

So ask a few vets in your home area, just give them a call and ask if they have ever prepared a dog for transport to Australia before in terms of tests and vaccinations. If they say yes, go see them and see what they have to say (on the phone you will have spoken to the assistant and you also need to see the vet to be sure). It will be well worth it if it helps you run into just that one person who knows exactly what they are doing.
