pet export new zealand

Fetchapet are experts at flying dogs & cats to New Zealand. With 30 years’ experience, we will fly your pet in safe and comfortable IATA compliant pet travel crates.

A bespoke dog and cat travel service to New Zealand for the pet owner including:

Collection of your pets from your home anywhere in England, Scotland or Wales, or you may deliver to our premises or be met at Heathrow airport by one of our representatives.

We will attend to your pets’ airline reservations which are normally on a direct flight with Air New Zealand and will attend to, or guide you through, the completion of all the necessary pre-export documentation.

We can provide recommendations of quarantine establishments and offer assistance with checking documents and details prior to submitting the import permit application.

Pre-shipment boarding is available for dogs and cats for long or short periods or we are happy to liaise with you, your pet carer or relative and your own veterinary surgery to ensure the protocols for dogs and cats to be admitted to New Zealand are adhered to. Please note it currently takes at least 6 months to prepare pets for travel to New Zealand.

Pet dogs and cats must be microchipped and have the microchip number recorded on all veterinary certificates. Microchipping must be undertaken before the required vaccinations or treatments are given to enable the Official Veterinarian (OV) or Local Veterinary Inspector (LVI) Veterinary Surgeon of DEFRA to identify the animal when completing any paperwork.

Pre-shipment veterinary work by our own Veterinary Surgeons is also available including blood tests, parasite treatments and the issue of the DEFRA Export Health Certification. If you prefer to use your usual Veterinary Surgery, we will guide both you and your Vet through each step as necessary to ensure total compliance with the current regulations.

We offer clear guidance and as much support as needed for our clients on what tests and treatments must be done and when to do it in order to prepare pets for shipment.

IATA compliant air travel kennels are manufactured in our own workshops and each kennel is tailor made to suit your pet's measurements which ensures maximum safety and comfort during the journey.

All clients are most welcome to come and visit us to meet the Fetchapet staff who will be looking after your pet. We have fantastic dog walks right on the doorstep and are happy to take you for a relaxing country walk to discuss your requirements and offer you a different approach with our truly bespoke pet travel services. Our cat owners are just as welcome to come and visit us for a cuppa and a chat. Please join us on our facebook page for the most up to date news and travelling pet stories.
