Going overseas? We can help


Dr Libby Thompson is now AQIS accredited (Australian Quarantine and Inspection Service) for companion animal export. This means at Seaforth we can now do the examination and testing of dogs and cats that are emigrating

If you think you are moving overseas with your pet, you should contact us as early as possible as there is a mountain of regulations and paperwork to get through

The main countries people are exporting animals to are the UK, and to New Zealand. The export requirements for each country vary, so as well as microchipping, general health checks and vaccinations, and satisfying IATA (International Animal Transport Association) requirements each country has its own regulations regarding disease vaccination and prevention. Travel arrangements can be made by Pet Travel Companies, who will organise the flight and crate for your pet. We can then check the requirements of your destination country, see whether import permits are required, blood tests or treatments necessary, and sort out the pre-export checks and treatments as required

An official AQIS vet must also check your pet just prior to departure
