It took two hours to fill out my health certificate. That’s pretty insane. Amalia was wonderful in the room however and with Charlie.
When I went to the USDA they informed me that all the dates were wrong as they were filled out the us way / format rather than the European way / format. Luckily he allowed me to fix this myself in pen and initialling the changes. Please note this for the future. I hope I will not have an issue while travelling because of this mistake.
The dr was also unaware that the tapeworming could be post-dated and I had to assure them that this was the case by showing them an email I had.
If I had allowed them to administer the tapeworm when they wanted and date it such, it would have fallen outside the obligatory 72 hours and my animal would have been refused entry.
Please note this for the future as other clients may not be as aware of the rules as I am nor as diligent to fight their case.
