The process

Email us

We strongly recommend finding a pet exporter first, as they can take care of all the details like your flight booking, pet's crate, and any other export requirements. You will need a confirmed flight for export.

If you're struggling with who to go with, get in touch and we can recommend some great options who will look after your furbaby.

Book a date/time

Once you have a confirmed travel date, we will arrange to see you within 5 days of export. 

An invoice will be provided before your appointment to help with budgeting. Once payment is confirmed, we'll be at your home or hotel at an agreed time. One less thing to think about in a stressful move!

In-home vet check

Busy with last-minute moving? Have no fear, we'll come to you! 

Our Auckland MPI-approved vet will come with everything needed for the export of your pet, (including treats and cuddles)! All we need is a safe quiet room to examine your pet, and approx 30 minutes for the appointment.

Bon voyage!

After the vet check and certification is complete, you will have the original certificate to keep and we will email copies of the certificate and our examination notes to you/your pet transport agency and the authorities.

Flight booked, crate ready, and your pet all certified – you're ready for your next adventure!

Once payment has been confirmed, we'll see you there!

What countries do you provide pet export certification for?

At this stage, we are only focusing on cat and dog exports to Australia.

What areas do you service?

We cover North, Central, and West Auckland. Just include your address in your enquiry!

How much does it cost?

Our fee for a house-call Australian export check and certification is $695.  This includes the MPI-approved vet travelling to your address, a thorough assessment of your pet, completed export certificate, and the flea and worm treatments required for export.

Additional charges:
Microchipping: $85
Brachycephalic (flat face) assessment: $110

We will send you a quote after receiving your enquiry and finding out a little more about you and your pet.

Confirmed payment is required prior to your appointment date. As we understand that travel plans can change, we will make every attempt to accommodate any flight changes. Please note that all confirmed payments are non-refundable.

My pet has a flat face (brachycephalic); can it be exported?

Yes, provided you have booked on a carrier that will accept them. Again, your nominated pet transport agency will be best placed to advise.

If a pre-travel brachycephalic assessment is required, please let us know in your booking notes.

My pet has an ongoing health condition; can it be exported?

In most situations, if your pet has been under the care of your GP and its health conditions are well-managed, export should not be an issue.

Please let us know about these conditions prior to your appointment so we can request any relevant notes and history, and tailor our advice for you and your pet. 

My pet needs some additional blood tests. Where can I get them done?

At this point, we are not providing any blood test services. We suggest you contact your regular vet clinic to get these tests done. Results can take several weeks to come back, so make sure you plan ahead :)

Get in touch with us once you have received the negative blood tests results and we can arrange a date/time for your export check and certification appointment.

What size crate do I need?

Please contact your nominated pet transport agency. They can help you book flights, source crates, and advise you on any other travel requirements.

I have a last minute export emergency! Can you help?!

Please get in touch and we'll do our best! An emergency fee may apply.
