You must Plan Ahead for your pet’s EU Relocation!
1. Have your veterinarian implant an ISO 11784 or 11785 readable MicroChip in your dog and/or cat. Should your local veterinarian not have access to the EuroChip, AIR CLUB FOR PETS can Federal Express the chip to you or your veterinarian overnight. Cost is USD $75.00/chip + shipping and handling.
2. On the same day of the “chipping”, have your veterinarian administer a Rabies Booster Vaccination following the micro chip procedure, being sure to have the microchip number recorded on the Rabies Immunization certificate. The Rabies Certificate should be signed in an ink color other than black, by the administering veterinarian. The veterinarian administering the Rabies immunization must be USDA accredited.
3. For those countries whose entry protocols require Rabies Antibody testing for entry: Schedule a return visit within a sufficient waiting period – 30 days after chipping and vaccination – for the purposes of collecting a blood sample (serum only) for a FAVN-OIE Rabies Antibody blood test. The date of blood collection is referred to as the “draw date”.
