Vaccinations

(Consult with your vet)

Rabies Vaccination:

Timeframe: Within 1 year of export.
Every cat and dog must be vaccinated against rabies with an approved inactivated rabies virus vaccine within 1 year of export and when the dog or cat was at least 3 months old.

If this is your pet’s first Rabies vaccination or if you are unable to provide previous vaccination records, then this vaccination must be at least 4 weeks old before your pet can start the procedure.

General Vaccinations:

Timeframe: Between 1 year and 14 days prior to export.
Dogs must be vaccinated with a 5-in-1-Vaccine which covers Canine Distemper, Canine Hepatitis, Canine Parvovirus, Canine Para-influenza and Canine Adenovirus Type 2. If the Bordetella Bronchiseptica vaccination has not been done, it will be done on arrival at the Keringa Emigration Station.
Cats must be vaccinated with a 3-in-1 which covers Feline Panleucopenia, Feline Rhinotracheitis and Feline Calicivirus. If the Bordetella Bronchiseptica vaccination has not been done, it will be done on arrival at the Keringa Emigration Station.

Blood tests

For pets travelling to Australia, it is recommended that your vet test your dog for Ehrlichia Canis at the start of the 6/7 month procedure. We will provide you with the blood test form which your vet will need to complete. We will re-test at the start of quarantine and may do another check test during quarantine. It is imperative that you keep your dog tick-free – so please apply Frontline every 4 weeks religiously.
All other blood tests and procedures needed for the protocol between South Africa and Australia will be done whilst in quarantine.
