pets exports ~ the veterinary stuff
You're taking your pet with you? Hmmm... the strange choices people make!
Managing your pet's relocation entirely on your own? Or using an agent other than DKC Relocations? BUT you need DKC Veterinary Clinic for some aspects of the relocation process?
No problem. We're here for ya, baby!
Just download our documents "Pet Exports ~ The Veterinary Stuff" to learn about all we can do for you at our clinic and our charges to you for being so unspeakably helpful.
What's more, however, is that this document, and the accompanying document "Rabies ~ Country-Mandated Timeframes for Primary Vaccinations", are FULL of OTHER very important and valuable relocations-related information (lovingly contributed by our relocations department) which will help you get through the morass of "stuff" you need to deal with. Relocating your pet can be hard but it IS doable without an agent involved, and we aim to nudge you along as helpfully as possible.
