Companion animal export veterinarians

​The department has recently made changes to the requirements for veterinarians preparing cats and dogs for export. Previously registered veterinarians required accreditation by the department to prepare cats and dogs for export.

As of 2 January 2018 all veterinarians fully registered by a State or Territory Veterinary Board are able to prepare cats, dogs and pet birds for export from Australia.

Veterinarians must prepare animals to meet the requirements of the importing country.

Veterinarians should only prepare companion animals for export if they are confident and familiar with Australia’s animal health certification system.
