DBphoto posted a topic in Shipping and RemovalsSection six of "Unaccompanied Personal Effects Statement" asks: "Within one month prior to shipping these effects to Australia, did you or any member of your family who arrived or will arrive with you, visit a place where farm animals are kept, including farming communities, research farms, sanctuaries and sale yards or visit an abattoir or any meat processing plant." Just a tick box yes or no. No space to say, "Well actually we live in the British countryside and we do respect what you are trying to do and we've cleaned everything really well twice ...", rather than we've been hanging out in meat packing plants (like you would). This question concerns me because, unless one lives in a town, it seems one has to tick "yes", which has to be asking for them for the quarantine people to, er, fleece one. Thoughts and advice appreciated. Direct experience valued.
Hi Everyone. We are in the very early stages of planning our emigration to Oz and before making the final decision to move to the other side of the globe we really could do with some help and advice regarding the shipping of our 2 Dalmations. If all goes to plan they will both be 10 years old when we manage to make the move and we plan to be in Melbourne. We've been to the vets this morning and given the all clear for them health wise plus Dalmations can live until around 14/15 yrs however our concern is that we have heard some horror stories about the conditions for pets whilst being transported on the flight (extreme temperature differences etc.). There is no way that we would consider rehoming them, they are our family and we feel that emigrating is not a good enough reason to rehome family members. Has anyone had a simlar experience to what we are going through and if so how were your dogs upon their arrival to Australia? Were they visibly stressed? Are you able to visit them regularly whilst in quarantine? What type of crates are best? In fact any advice or help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, D&G
