    Dog failing rabies test

    Completly devistated - just had word back from my vets that Cooper has not passed his second vaccination his level now is 0.44. I’m completly screwed as i have flights booked for Aug and now he can’t come until mid Oct at the earliest. I really wish i had been aware prior to starting the vaccination process that this could happen. Does anyone know if the vets can administer a double dose of vaccination? I feel that his first level must have been so low and he’s a big dog (50kg) that this should have been considered.

    Initial fees to pay

    I found this on the dept of agriculture website. Can anyone tell me from their experience if these are the inital costs... - import permit application $120 - assessment of permit application $360 and then when i book their space PEQ charge $1200 In-office inspection (Cats against permit conditions) $60 In-office inspection (Veterinary health check). $60 Husbandry daily fee (10 days x two cats) $290 So just over $2000 to be paid to book in?

    Initial fees to pay

    Hi, Could someone let me know what & how much the initial fees are that I have to pay for the import permit and quarantine booking? Getting (slowly) closer...my boy is going back for his second rabies blood test this week after needing a second shot because his levels weren't high enough Thanks

    Dog failing rabies test

    Well he's had his vaccination again a few days ok, so fingers crossed. If he fails again then I'm really screwed.

    Dog failing rabies test

    Has anyone’s dog failed their rabies test after being vaccinated? Just got the results back from the vets and Cooper hasn’t passed his apparently big dogs, male dogs and dogs under 12mths are most likely to fail and Cooper fits 2/3 of these (big & male). Fortunatly i have enough time (just!) to get him redone, wait 3 weeks to re-test and then start the 180 day countdown for our planned export date.

    Can I take ......

    With the Christmas tree (artifical) out at the moment and thinking of putting it away, are there any xmas decorations that i should not pack away now...saves having to go through the containers when its actually time to pack. I have some little pine cone decorations - are they ok? Any others i should be aware of?

    Paperwork for importing Pets

    Thanks @The Pom Queen. My cat and dog are in Ireland with my house sitters and I'm in Australia so it's a bit challenging! I may end up shipping them out of the UK as the quotes I have received thus far are cheaper, but I still need to get all the vet work done in Ireland. I've seen that calculator and I've printed out all the Dept advice on each step for my house sitters to take to the vet. I was more wondering if there was a specific form that the vet needs to fill out once the rabies shots are done (for example), or are the vet records and subsequent blood tests sufficient. If you wouldn't mind PMing me what you have done that would be great

    Paperwork for importing Pets

    Hi, I am starting the process of getting the vaccinations etc done to import my dog and cat to Australia. As my animals are in Ireland I'll have to do the paperwork etc myself rather than getting one of the big companies to do it. I just wanted to check I can't see any specific forms on the Dept of Agriculture website that needs to completed? Thanks, mel
  10. Thanks for that. Do you have a link to more info about the changes the gov will be making. Looks like i’ll have to get a banger here to tide me over but would go back into an EV in a heartbeat if i could.
  11. Hi, I was hoping you could tell me if it was worth bringing my car to Australia and how much it would cost me roughly. It's an electric car so I know there are other issues I'll need to consider, especially as electric isn't very popular in Oz but I'd be interested to know. The other thing is that I will have only owned the car for 12months on the 24th June. I'm already in Australia...will this affect things - if i'ts imported after the 24th June 2018 is that ok? - year of manufacture 2016 - make, model & variant Nissan Leaf Acenta 30kwh 6.6 charger - body type (coupe, convertible, etc) Hatch - engine size & fuel type 0.00 - electric - transmission Auto - drive type (4WD, front wheel drive, etc) front wheel - mileage 29500kms / 18330miles - any special features, options or modification - does it have aircon? Yes - realistic current UK market value £15000 - Australian RedBook value (www.redbook.com.au - click through to the page with 'Private Price Guide', 'Trade In Price Guide' and 'Price When New' listed, then tell us the 'Private Price Guide' range) $17400 - $19600 - Australian market value (http://www.carsales.com.au/all-cars/search.aspx - search for the closest matching vehicle) No idea - there are only two on carsales.com.au, both of which are 2012 models with the 24kwh battery. One is listed as $20,000, the other $30,000 - which Australian state/city Victoria Thanks ?
