How No risk deal on Bookipet works
What you need to send your pet abroad
Why chipping is needed. When sent abroad, the pet is checked at the airport. This requires a microchip. Chipping does not make it possible to replace or take out an animal infected with rabies or infectious diseases abroad. If the pet's body has a stamp made before 2011, it is not necessary to microchip the pet.
How does chipping work? The veterinarian inserts a needle under the pet's skin and implants a chip. It is painless and takes two minutes. The chip itself is made of biocompatible glass and is in a sterile capsule. An individual 15—digit code is programmed into it to identify the pet.
Chipping benefits. The microchip is inserted under the pet's skin once, and remains with it for life. With a chipped animal, you can travel around the world. And if the pet is lost, the chip can help to return it: the person who found the lost animal, with the help of the chip, will find out the coordinates of the owner and will contact him.
Chipping cost. The price depends on the veterinary clinic, city and type of chip. The average cost in Ukraine is 450—600 hryvnia.
Veterinary passport of international standard
To leave a pet from Ukraine to EU countries, you need an international veterinary passport. Since June 1, 2018, the Ministry of Agrarian Policy and Food of Ukraine has approved a new form of veterinary and sanitary passport for pets. It indicates:
- Pet information: date of birth, nickname, breed, color, gender, chip number with implantation date and location, photo.
- Vaccination history: the name of the vaccines certified by the signature and stamp of the veterinarian.
- Owner information: full name, residential address and telephone number.
- Rabies vaccination: name of vaccine, date of vaccination, signature and stamp of the veterinarian. You can vaccinate a pet if it is three months old, and no more than 30 days are left before departure. The vaccine is valid for a year.
Form 1 BET
Form 1 BET — a document that allows you to transport an animal abroad. Issued by the State Veterinary Service, 3 days before sending the pet. It indicates the route of his movement.
The pet flies to the owner by plane, along the route: «Kiev — Paris — New York». Kiev is the starting point, Paris is the transit airport, New York is the destination.
You can get Form 1 BET in state veterinary clinics, but only if you have a veterinary passport with vaccinations. At the border, Form 1 BET is exchanged for an international veterinary certificate. This certificate confirms the health of the pet. It is filled in by veterinarians at the border point, in the state language.
Blood test for antibodies
A blood test is taken after the rabies vaccination, between 4 and 12 months of the pet's life. The taken blood is analyzed at the State Scientific Research Institute for laboratory diagnostics of veterinary and sanitary examination. The content of neutralizing antibodies must be at least 0.5 IU / ml. The analysis is relevant for the entire life of the pet, if the annual vaccination is done on schedule.
Deworming and treatment against ectoparasites is done 1—2 days before sending the pet. After the procedure, the veterinarian leaves a record in the pet's veterinary passport.
Animal import permit
Pet import permits are required by: Switzerland, UAE, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Israel, Senegal, Japan, Philippines, Singapore, Sri Lanka, Thailand, India, Australia and New Zealand. It is issued by the Ministry of Agriculture, the Department of Livestock and the Airport Quarantine Service.
