    Bringing Cat into Brisbane Area

    Hi All I'm new to this site and this is my first post, I've scrolled through some of the previous posts about cats, and gained some information, but I've still got some questions if anyone knows the answers or could advise that would be greatly appreciated. I have a male neutered Persian cat, who is almost 6 years old, he is indoors approximately 70% of the time and outdoors the rest but he doesn't go very far and always checks back every half hour to an hour. He's a giant softie and isn't confrontational towards other cats, or animals (he likes to relax with my rabbits). He is on a special diet (Royal Canin) for urinary problems, which is managed fine with diet. I was wondering if people have taken their cats to the Brisbane area, I'll be looking at the suburban area's not city. and how their cats have adapted, do you let them out? I've heard various things and I'm not sure what to believe, one side of people say "oh no you cannot let them out, because of snakes, spiders, ticks etc", and the others say " yes its fine mine lived to ripe old age etc." Also wondering if anyone else's cat has a special diet? as I've read you cannot bring food due to the laws etc. So was worrying about sourcing suitable food. Which transport companies would you recommend? And do you pick your pets up at Melbourne and then fly with them to Brisbane or just meet them at Brisbane after the quarantine period? Many Thanks

    Dog to Australia

    My husband and I are moving out to Australia at the end of January 2018 and we are taking our beloved pooch with us. We have chosen a travel company to fly her with but I am so nervous for her to fly and the idea of her being in her crate for over 24 hours scares me a little. I would love to hear some people's stories on there pets journey to Oz from the UK just to get more of an idea of the process the dog goes through and how you dogs got on after the flight and quarantine. Thanks in advance.

    Cat transfer UK to Australia

    Hi, Looking for some advice in regards to transporting our cats from UK to Australia. Just wondering if anyone with some experience of this can advise the best time to send them, not sure whether to send them a week or so before we leave or leave it closer to our move date. Also, does anyone know how long are they in quarantine or does this depend on the pet? Our move date isn't for another couple of years due to commitments in UK, so just trying to get organised and do some research but couldn't seem to find this info on the airpets website. Any advice gratefully received. Thanks in advance

    Cats in Australia (wildlife)

    Hi We just got our permanent visas approved so now it’s very real! I’m really upset at the thought of leaving my cat behind when we go, I’ve looked into various companies to help with the move and waiting for a few quotes. But I’m concerned about the wildlife-cane toads, snakes, poisonous spiders etc. He is currently my spider catcher and does like to bring in a mouse or two, I’m concerned he might try to catch something that will end up killing him as he’s grown up being able to catch anything. Does anyone have experience of moving with a cat (particularly one which likes to have freedom outdoors) and if there has been any issues with wildlife?
  5. Hi everyone I was wondering if anybody had flown a diabetic pet to Australia before and did they cope ok? I have spoke to some UK pet export companies and have had mixed advice. I know that the dog will not receive insulin for up to 24 hours and will also not have any food for this amount of time also. I know with diabetes, this amount of time with neither insulin or food can be lethal and lead to coma's and death. I would hate to put my boy through all the stress only for him to die scared and alone in the plane cargo. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. He is a 8 year old Chihuahua.
  6. I know someone has posted this recently but I feel it needs to be made a sticky, there are lots of people who need to return to the UK and this is great news for them. I have attached the information from DEFRA, but briefly: Dogs/Cats now only have to wait 21 days from after the Rabies Blood Test No Blood Test for Dogs and Cats No Tick Treatment is required pb13582-bringing-pets-to-uk110706.pdf pb13582-bringing-pets-to-uk110706.pdf
  7. Hi all, can an anyone possibly help? $50 to you :-) Dogtainers are shipping my dogs back from perth to Manchester in February but due to EU new law someone has to travel within 5 days. Unfortunatly we are already in the uk. The person would only need to email their details to dogtainers. They would be in no way responsible for the dogs what so ever. You can travel five days before or after not the same flight even please if anyone can help please I am totally stressed I want my babies home!!! Thanks in advance xxx

    Shipping dogs back to UK

    We are looking to ship back our medium sized dogs to the UK but are getting conflicting advice about rabies vaccinations and how long you have to wait. Do we have to wait 6 months or travel within 3 weeks? I noticed a thread that was started over 4 years ago and wondered if anyone can share their recent experience of shipping pets, please? Also if anyone can recommend a pet travelling company too, that would be great. Thank you

    Bringing Cats to Australia

    Hey everybody! First time poster here. I hope you can help me out. My girlfriend is an Aussie, and I'm an American. After 3 years of doing the long distance thing, we're working on getting me over to Australia. Now, the complication seems to be my two cats. Leaving them is not an option for me, and I'm trying to figure out what I'm looking at in the way of expenses. Has anyone moved a cat (or cat-sized dog) from the US to Australia? What was your experience? What were your costs per cat? My cats would be traveling from Orlando (MCO) to Melbourne (MEL). Alternatively, I could get them to Dallas, and they could travel from Dallas-Fort Worth (DFW) to Melbourne (MEL), if that would be easier or cheaper. My vet told me to expect to spend around $8,000 per cat, which seems terribly high. At this point, I have government Lodgement and Assessment fess figured at $730 for both cats combined, and quarantine fees (now only 10 days of quarantine required) figured at $3,434. That brings my total government/quarantine costs to $4,164 for both cats combined. Does that sound about right? Am I missing anything? Any idea how much plane tickets should cost? I know they are required to travel as cargo. Do you have any recommended carriers? Is there a good reason to use a Pet Agent? I'd like to avoid the expense, unless a Pet Agent is absolutely necessary. I know it might sound a bit crazy to spend this kind of money on cats, and that it would be cheaper to "replace" them. But they're simply irreplaceable, and I'd run into a burning building for either of these little guys. Thank you so much for your help! Any input is greatly appreciated! Tom

    Moving back to UK with pets

    Hi All Its been a while since coming on here as 2 years ago just over I up sticks and moved to Perth, now after some time and a marriage breakdown I am looking at shipping myself and my 2 cats and dog back to Blighty. Wondered if anyone had any advice on shipping pets from Perth and what the general costs are ? I assume its going to be anywhere between $5/7k :arghh: God that's a frightening amount of money. Anyway also would love to know how people have settled back into life over there as I have been away from the UK for such a long time as before Perth I was living in Europe. Would love to hear what people think and any ideas to make the process smoother would certainly be very welcome. Hope to hear from you all soon.. enjoy the day guys wherever you are in the world :tongue:
  13. Hi Everyone, We moved from the UK to OZ three years ago. As part of our move we transported out little pug. I have noticed some people on this forum looking for advice on pet transport so I thought I'd join and tell my experience. In the end I did the whole thing myself. I did all the paperwork, booked the flights (Japan Airways for pugs), bought the crate, booked the quarantine. In total it cost (with flight) around 2000 pounds. That was still a big saving on using a transport company and it was very successful. Little pug is sitting on the sofa in Melbourne with me now. Before I decided to do this I looked for quotes from transport companies. I ended up emailing Airsupply Shipping Agents (or Passports for pets). The owner and manager there told me completely incorrect information. He told me I couldn't transport a pug to Australia as Australia only accepted pets from Qantas and BA (not true he was muddled with Heathrow) and they do not fly pugs. I told him that wasn't right but that's fine I would get a quote elsewhere. He then became rude and abusive in his emails. calling me 'little girl' and telling me to 'go back to Australia':eek: (I am British). It was a bizarre email exchange ( I still have it, it was so weird) and I became very greatful I did not inflict a man like this upon my little pug. So a word of warning, they do not know their stuff and they are a very strange company. If your airline won't allow you to do it yourself (some won't) or you are not confident to try, my recommendation is avoid this lot!

    Still lost, advice?

    I'll give you some background: My family and i moved to Australia, originally Perth WA, in February 2008. After 8 months of not getting work, being unhappy, paying huge rent there, we decided to move to the North West Coast of Tasmania. We have been here for about 4 years now. It's a beautiful state, but there are hardly any jobs and everything is expensive my family don't enjoy their jobs and i cannot find an apprenticeship - being a girl in Automotive makes everything a little more difficult as everyone over here is sexist as hell. We're doing well with money, we have two cars, a boat, a gorgeous house with panoramic ocean and mountain views, yet we find ourselves wanting to move back to the UK. My mum's family is back in the UK and we miss them a fair bit; perhaps that's what is instigating our move. But yea, i don't feel as though i have anything here; no mates, no job, no future here. I keep trying to remind myself of the state of the UK; the traffic, etc. but i still want to go back for good. i've never felt like we fit in here, based on the fact that we're english. We're going to need a 40ft container and we are taking our 4 year old Ragdoll cat, Zach, with us. Has anyone been feeling/have felt similar and moved back? We're just a bit lost and stressing out about the process. Nothing is set into concrete, but it is more likely than not that we'll move back. Any comments or opinions would be appreciated. Thanks.

    FAQ How To Take Your Horses To Australia

    We will move to Australia in Oct. 2012 and our beloved horses will come with us. Since I found it very difficult to gather information on this slightly exotic topic, I want to share my findings with everyone who is interested at PIO and the Internet. How to transport your horse or horses to OZ/ FAQ on horse transportation Formalities / Transportation / Vaccination and Health Requirements / Quarantine guidelines and rules based on current regulation 03/2012: 1. Your horse can only be transported to Australia from one the following countries: Japan, Germany, Hong Kong, Ireland, New Zealand, Singapore, UK, USA 2. If your horse originally came from a country not on this list, it must have stayed in one of the authorized countries for approx. 180 days (variations exist depending on origin and export country) before starting of pre quarantine. 3. Horses can only be imported via Sydney airport where they have to stay in post quarantine for approx. 2 weeks (based on horses gender and agent procedures), so you have to arrange transport via landroute to your final destination afterwards. There are a couple of vendors which offer scheduled weekly land transports from Sydney to all major cities. Costs are aprox. 1000 AUD per horse. These are easy to find via google. 4. It is very important to have a valid EU horse passport with complete identification for every horse. Furthermore you need a vaccination pass, if this is not integrated in your EU horse passport 5. You horse has to spent approx. 14 - 28 days (depending on if it is a stallion, mare or gelding and on agent procedures) in pre-quarantine within an authorized quarantine stable in your home country. You can´t do it yourself :-( 6. Here you can find all the horse health requirements and pre + post quarantine + transportation procedures of AQIS, the relevant OZ goverment authority: http://apps.daff.gov.au/icon32/asp/ex_QueryResults.asp?Commodity=Live+horses&Area=All+Countries&EndUse=All+End+Uses 7. It is terrible to read, but the most important ones for horses in the EU are the test for Equine Infectious Anemia (Coggins) + Equine Piroplasmosis (B. Caballi, T. Equi) (ELISA or IFAT Test). I would do them upfront as soon as possible, as a positive result will rule out any transportation... :-( It is important to understand that your horse could have this disease and NOT show symptoms. The tests are approx. 100 € per horse and your VET can help you with them. The remaining procedures deal with rather standard health requirements and deal with the exact transport and transit procedures. This will all be handled by your transportation agent during pre and post-quarantine and during transport. 8. If you own a mare or a stallion or a young foal together with its mother, additional tests for sexually transferable diseases apply. These can also be found in the above document. Since we have geldings I did not bother reading them... As far as I can see a couple of further tests are neccessary in these cases. In the special case of a pregnant mare, she has to stay in quarantine until giving birth. 9. Furthermore you need to vaccinate your horse with the ProTeq Flu vaccine against Equine Influenca. The intervals for vaccination must be 100% matched from the beginning. The base vaccination (2 shots with interval) has to be done before the pre-quarantine starts. The horse has to be given an additional booster shot of this vaccine approx. 90 - 21 days before the pre quarantine period, no matter if it would be neccessary based on the normal intervals. It is VERY IMPORTANT not to take shortcuts on this vaccination, as this disease is the main reason for the strict OZ quarantine regulation for horses. If anything is not done by the book with this one, your horse will not be allowed to board its flight! How are horses transported? / What agents are there? / How do horses cope with flying? / Can my horse be put down during flight? / Can I visit my horse during quarantine? / Can I accompany my horse during flight? 1. Normally you will not be able to visit your horse during pre and post quarantine due to strict sanitation procedures. All agents offer full care based on your specifications for your horses during pre and post-quarantine and the actual transport. 2. Horses are transported in IATA pallets during flight and ground movement, which are similar to horse floats.There is a video showing how horses are shipped around the world: http://www.cavallo.de/videos/video/first-class-wenn-pferde-fliegen.290745.233219.htm It is in German, but should still be interesting to watch for everyone. I have also found a couple of pictures: http://www.cavallo.de/know-how/animal-lounge-frankfurt.288587.233219.htm 3. Horses normally cope well with flying, and all agents very rarely encounter problems. If they encounter them, horses are given a mild sedative and will be fine then. There are a lot of stories on the net that horses have to be put down during flight due to panic, but these are just rumours and there is nothing true about them. No need to worry! Even cases of colic are very rare and are avoided by feeding special feed before the flight. You also do not need to sign an authorization that agents are allowed to put down your horse in flight. These are dumb rumours as well. When you compare a horse float to a plane, the plane is actually much less noisy and far more stable than a standard float. Only the take off and landing is more stressfull. 4. Horses are transported on cargo flights and mixed cargo / passenger flights. Normally pilots take special care during take off and landing and choose very flat landing and starting vectors. Furthermore they try to fly routes with as little turbulence as possible in order to reduce stress for their live cargo. 5. Your horse will be accompanied by professional horse grooms during the flight. I have heard that some agents offer the possibility to take owners as grooms on horse flights. I have read that often these owners are very nervous and are not much of help... :-) We will fully trust our agent with this. 6. There are not many companies who specialize in International horse shipments to OZ. I know of the following ones for UK and Germany: IRT (International Racehorse Transport) http://www.irt.com Peden Bloodstock http://www.peden-bloodstock.com/ Guido Klatte International Equine Services http://www.gklatte.de/ Crispin Bennett International http://www.crispinbennett.com/ 7. Horses will be fed hay during flight and have access to water. Due to quarantine regulations you should only send the bare neccessities together with the horse. As far as I have understood these items will be destroyed at the end of quarantine. So you have to bring new ones when picking up your horse in Sydney. 8. Taking horse items: All other stuff such as tack and saddlery has to be cleaned (do not get me wrong on this one... cleaned means it has to look brandnew :-) ) and shipped with your other household goods. If customs / quarantine agents will encounter any fur or dirt on them, it will get very expensive as they will "professionally" clean them for you. I have read of charges exceeding 100 AUD per item. 9. GST / As long as you own the horses for more than 1 year before export, you will not be charged any import GST as they are regarded as personal belongings. 10. Insurance / You can insure your horses for quarantine risks and standard health issues / death. This will help if any horse on a consignment fails quarantine, in this case you will be covered for the additional quarantine costs until the consignment gets released (200 AUD per day) and standard vet costs if they get sick during quarantine. In the past if somthing like this happended quarantine clearance for the consignment partially took more than 8 weeks (over 11000 AUD additional cost!!!). So this insurance makes a lot of sense and is very affordable. 11. Our agent supplied us with a contact number of the Sydney quarantine grooms, so that we could call them if we wanted an update on our horses. They have been very nice and I trusted them 100%. Prices 1. The cost of transporting 1 horse to Australia is approx. 16K € / 13K GBP per horse. This price includes everything (pre-quarantine, post-quarantine, transport, all grooming activities, feed etc.). Keep in mind that 3 horses can share a container, which will bring down costs to approx. 14K per horse when you have 3 horses in an own container. Furthermore I would set aside approx. 500 € for tests and other stuff. I hope that all this information proves to be useful for you, it took me months and countless phonecalls to gather it :-) Wishing all horse owners the best of luck! CU all in OZ! UPDATE: Our horses have arrived in Sydney safely in October. Everything has worked out just as described above. They have both settled in rather easily and really enjoy the good weather. We had to clip one of them since he already had a full winter coat, but that is the only thing that did not work out to plan. :-) The whole experience of transporting our horses was really excellent and I would not be worried of doing it again! I have been asked how they cope with the heat and until now I have not noticed that they have been struggling. A lot of the more expensive Oz horses are actually imported from Europe (warm bloods) and they all seem to be doing fine as well. I also did some research on this topic and most of the sources claim that horses can adjust easily to temperature and normally feel fine in a large variety of climate zones. Nevertheless if you ship horses from EUR winter to OZ summer, I would make sure that they are clipped prior to boarding their flight and rugging them for the remainder of their time in EUR... :-)

    Removals back to the UK

    has anybody got any info Re: removals back to the uk from OZ? I am looking for prices, recommendations of firms etc and If any body has gone it alone (without the use of removal companies) We also have 2 x dogs so any info would be helpful Thanks
  17. Hi, We're emigrating to Brisbane in a couple of weeks time and still haven't found a home for our 2 cats. We've tried all the family and freind normal routes and thought that we would have the animal charities as a final last resort if it came to it, but have recently found that they are in a dire situation with overcrowding and they have 2 year waiting lists. We've now out posters up, tried facebook atc, but to no avail. We can't take them with us due to a) the cost and b) the rental situation we'll be in when we get to Brisbane. They are both 11 years old and very affectionate. Both house trained. If you can help, please let me know and pass on my post to anyone else you think may be interested. Thanks! Nicky
  18. We have two air crates for sale. Suit small dogs 41cmx58cmx82cm. Meet all specifications. Originally supplied by Transfur when we brought our cavelier king charles spaniels over 2 years ago. $40 each or $70 for the pair. Pick up only in Brisbane.
  19. Hi everyone, It's been a while since I posted here, and a while since I first moved to Oz. As we come up to our one year 'Ozziversary', I thought I'd share my experience with those of you who might just be beginning your journey Sam and I moved to Perth from Sheffield last July on a 457 and we're now in the process of applying for sponsored Permanent Residency. We loved Perth right from the moment we arrived and busily began attending every social event we could in an effort to make friends. We are both quit shy people so it wasn't easy but I'm so glad we did. We have made some amazing friends in our first year, some Aussies, some British, and some from other places who all understand what it is like to make such a huge move. Some good pommy friends of ours told us that you have to make your own family when you move so far away and it is so, so true. Because of this, I think I'm closer to the friends I've made in Perth than to any friends I've ever had before and I think I cherish that more than anything else about our new life. Perth is lovely but it isn't for everyone. It's slow, it's quiet, the shops are never open after work and our post office doesn't open at the weekend. The driving is terrible and the freeway chokes up the moment it rains. You'd be lucky to find a pint for less than $10 and our weekly grocery bill is frightening but we don't care about any of that because somehow everything else makes up for it. The beaches are beautiful, the weather is amazing, people are friendly and there are days I drive through the city, look at the river and just can't believe I was ever lucky enough to make it here. I miss my family back in the UK terribly, but I still can't imagine going back there. I was prompted to write this post today because, today, we completed the last part of our move - our dog Conan made it over to Australia! We left him with Sam's parents, unsure if the move would work and not wanting to put him through the stress of moving across the world twice. We have missed him SO much! For all of you that have pets, I know all the worries and emotions you have about moving them and I promise you its all worth it. I was terrified Conan wouldn't remember who I was but the moment we walked into his kennel at Byford quarantine station this morning, he went absolutely mental. I've never heard him make noises like it! He didn't seem fazed by the travel experience at all, just ecstatic to see us. The staff at the quarantine station were lovely and the place was clean and well organised. I would recommend Golden Arrow Shippers (based in Shropshire) all the way and if anyone has any pet shipping questions, please feel free to ask or pm me! Well, I could go on. All I will say to all you planning or packing or trying to get through those first difficult few months... for us, it was all worth it. Moving to Australia is the hardest thing I have ever done and I've had many days when I wanted nothing but to hug my mum but even through the hard days I've never regretted it once. New jobs, new house, new friends, new start! Best wishes to you all xxx

    URGENT UPDATE - Shipping Pets

    Dear PIO members The Australians have now classed UK as Rabies well controlled rather than rabies free. Which means that pets travelling from UK to Australia after Jan 1st 2012 now have to have pre travel rabies work. Pets have to have a rabies vaccination within 12 months of the flight date and a rabies vaccination at least 60 days before the flight, but ideally 6-12 months. They then need a rabies blood sample ideally at least 5 months before their flight date. It can be less than 5 months before their flight date, but they will have to spend longer in Australian quarantine if that is the case. The pets are allowed out of quarantine 180 days after the date of the rabies blood sample or 30 days after they land whichever is the greater. Basically - if you are thinking of going to Australia with your pet, start planning early. If you are planning to go in Jan or Feb next year - either try to send your pet before Jan 01st 2012 or be prepared for pets flight to be delayed or the quarantine stay be extended. Check out the following link: http://www.daff.gov.au/aqis/cat-dogs/countries/cat4 http://www.petairuk.com Please see the update on the Pet Shipping Forum http://www.pomsinoz.com/forum/shipping-pets-ask-pet-air/124633-new-rules-shipping-pets-back-uk-2012-a.html

    BEWARE - Rentals and Pets

    I want to let you all know how hard it is to find a rental with a pet in Perth at the moment. I wish someone had advised me of this before I made the decision to move here as I would not have arrived without accommodation sorted. I left my dog in the UK, he is due to fly out next week... sadly though I can not bring him as I still can not find a rental that allows pets. I am crushed... I cry every day and basically if it does not happen soon then I am going to go back to the UK with my family in tow. Everyone says 'get over it, it's a dog' NO... He is MY dog, MY family and I want life with him... I would NEVER have left him in the UK... from day 1 he was always coming... I honestly thought I would have found a house ready for his arrival... but no... there is nothing!! Please, please bear this in mind... I have not only shed a million tears, I have also lost a hell of a lot of money too :sad: (So you know, I am looking for a 4x2 NOR Perth WA)

    oh what to do...

    Hi, I'm new to the forum but have been reading the posts on 457 visas and LAFHA and its been very useful. I have a 457 visa available for my job so my bf and I are planning on going to Melbourne next year for about 1-2 years. I just don't know whether to bring my cat, I can't bare to leave him (but family could look after him) but on the other hand I don't want to put him on a plane and in quarrantine and then have to do it again when we come home. Also once I include 'pet friendly' in the rental property search everything disappears! Except a few way-over budget ones, which is a real issue. Anyone in/been in any similar situation, or just able to give any advice? Thanks Em
