New Zealand - Final Vet Schedule for the export of cats and dogs from the UK.

In the case of Dogs only

d) Extra blood tests are required for:

Dirofilaria (Heartworm) ELISA antigen test (within 30 days of flight) unless it's a puppy under 6 months old,

Leptospira canicola MAT (within 30 days of flight - or specific treatment with antibiotics).

Brucella canis RSA, (within 16 days of flight),

Babesia Gibsonii IFA (within 16 days of flight), *** this test is currently done abroad – samples are sent from the UK and test is performed on only two days per week so it is critical that the sample gets to Weybridge as early as possible ***

All above must be submitted to DEFRA/AHVLA/APHA Weybridge and come back with negative results (more tests/treatments will need to be done if any positive results are obtained). The blood test results MUST accompany the Export Health Certificate
