And as a consequence our dog is now sitting in quarantine 130 mile, 4 hour drive away😒😫😡
We read the instruction, the vet read the instructions, the pet shipping company got all the docs signed off by USDA and when our dog arrives at Heathrow today we are told the USDA is giving wrong information and we can either ship the dog back to the US or have him quarantined at a huge additional
Cost which is what we had to do given that we had no choice.
Issue is that his original chip was not ISO compliant so he had to be rechipped. USDA says if rabies was done Prior to rechipping but both chips can be read, re-doing rabies vaccination is not required after inserting second chip. This is utterly incorrect!
Our dog is now far far away, alone and probably traumatized and we have an additional £865 tompY for the privilege of following incorrect USDA information.
