Hello,

My husband lives in UK and I will be moving there to join him in a month, month and a half.

I have 2 dogs, a lab and a GSD that I need to relocate there.

Their anti rabies shots are done and booster shots done, and both were micro-chipped prior to this being done.

Both are spayed and neutered.

I am wondering whether is it better to manage their relocation work on my own, or should I take help of some pet relocation company? I have heard of Anvis in Bangalore and Furry Flyers in Mumbai, and have spoken to both.

I am however nervous about deciding on whom to place my trust.

Your guidance and feedback will be of great help..

Regards,

Surbhi

Your dogs need to be tested by an EU laboratory and after the result they need to stay for another 3 months in India before they are allowed to travel.
I highly recommend the services of Dr. Choudhary who I have worked with on pet exports for serveral years. See: http://www.choudharypetclinic.com/Contact-us.html
The time will come when men will look upon the murder of animals as they look upon the murder of men.

Relocating your pet from Bangalore to UK.

Dear Surbhi

You can work with Furry Flyers, they have an office in Bangalore also. They have recently relocated my friend's Spitz from Bangalore to UK. My friend got her pet in London within 2 hours of the flight's arrival.

Hi Surbhi, I recently moved from the uk with my Chihuahua. It is the rabies antibody test you need from the EU Lab and that has to be done 3 months before you go back. You can do this yourself through your vet. Are you planjing to ship them in the hold all the way to London?

Any vet can give the rabies shot. Ideally the cat gets a booster shot about 3/4 weeks later and you take the blood sample again one month later.

It is not easy to get the sample with a courier from India to the EU laboratory but if you (or you know somebody who) goes to Europe that person can take it and send it/deliver it to the laboratory.

So you do not need a special vet. Any vet can do the vacs and take the blood.

Thanks @Birds my cat has been vaccinated thrice as he is 2 yrs old his last was done on 20th Dec , I am travelling on 1 jan , and couldn't find anyone to take the blood sample, Is it possible for my vet to send the sample to EU lab on request, I will ask him . Today I am going to CUPA Bangalore office and ask them if they can help me on this.

You have mentioned Dr. Marilyn Estibeiro from Goa (tel: 0832 241 7827) , if I can send the sample to her , can she do the EU test for me. I have friends who live in BELGAUM ,KA. He can take it directly to her in a coldPack.

For a vet to send a blood sample to the EU he/she has to have a special contract with one of the main couriers that is authorized to take blood samples.

The reason is that as per UN regulations blood sample to be tested for rabies fall in the category biological substance so require specific packaging and precautions. It is also expensive so most vets will not have such contracts with couriers in place.

Dr. Estibeiro would probably not do this for an animal that she does not have in her care.

I know that CUPA in Bangalore has helped people to take their animals to Europe so they may have a good solution in Bangalore. If they do please let us know on this forum so other people may be able to use it as well.

Do I understand correctly that you travel yourself on 1st Jan? If so why do not you take it with you yourself.
Here you can find the packing rules: http://www.royaleinternational.com/p...3_01072013.pdf

Note that after you have taken the blood sample, it has to go to a laboratory in India to produce serum (minimal 1 ml serum for which can be produced from 3 to 5ml blood). Only the serum has to go to the EU laboratory.

It is best to contact the EU laboratory beforehand as some require some forms to be filled in beforehand by a vet.

EU approved laboratory are on the list here: http://ec.europa.eu/food/animal/appr...atories_en.htm

Note any laboratory on the list is acceptable irrespective of the EU country to dog goes to.

HI Birds,

My cat has been vaccinated on 20th Dec . I believe I need to take the blood sample after 30 days only . I have called CUPA but they are not aware of the same . I might visit them personally again. The only solution left with me is to come back and take the blood sample again.

If I were you I would take the blood sample on the 31st and try it. It varies per animal how long it takes to build antibodies. The building of antibodies begins the moment you vaccinate and it is a general rule that it takes 2 weeks to reach the maximum antibodies level however it varies per animal, some may reach the antibodies quicker.

Also the test requires only 0.5 titer levels so that is not that high. I have tests coming back between 2.5 and 6.5! So even if your cat does not have the maximum antibodies it may still be enough to pass the test.

In the worst case you have lost Euro 55 and have to do it again. In the best case you get a pass and you save yourself lots of time.

Do not give your cat food 12 hours before taking the blood sample. Take the blood sample in the morning. Bring it immediately to a laboratory and ask them to produce 1ml serum. Keep the 1ml serum in the freezer until you leave. Pack it with a cold pack and put it into the suitcase that you check-in (Not in your handluggage). On arrival either post or bring it to laboratory. Make sure you inform the lab beforehand and ask if you need any paperwork to be filled in.

On the German website it says there is a new rule effective from December 29th this year. Unfortunately I can't find the English translation of this article. There is an English version of the website, but not for this article

They are referring to Act (EU) No. 576/2013.

I have got this reply from a US lab, now i need to talk again to my vet and convince him to send the sample or else need to find any other vet who can help me out.

I have attached forms that you will need. Send the FAVN and serum by FEDEX or DHL whatever is available. Your vet will be our client and the results of the FAVN testing will go back to the vet via email and hard copy by airmail unless you elect for the $50 FEDEX Courier option (attached) which is highly recommended.
More information available at the following link:

Payment information available at this link:

Once the package has been shipped you can check the FAVN Submission Status at the following link using the pet’s microchip number:
