Re: EMERGENCY- Rabies vaccine

Obvioulsy not- you can't have a pet passport without rabbies vaccine and the statutory delay (21 days minimum) and the microchip must be inserted and registered on passport before the rabbies immunisation.

Did you buy that dog from the internet, from an illegal puppy farm? How did it get here??? Surely you didn't drive from Russia with it in the boot of the car.

it has the "vaccination book" the way they bring it here was that they create another book with older age+rabies vaccine. thats why he can go through the border. Now the vet told me to phone the cantonal vet. But i am scared that they would take away my dog.

i got all the pedigree paper and stuff but not the blue eu book and rabies vaccine.

Re: EMERGENCY- Rabies vaccine

I'm sorry but I am speechless. Do you know anything about the conditions those dogs are bred in- and whether he comes from a cruel and disgusting puppy farm. These people have to be stopped- for the sake of the dogs, and due to the risk of disease and rabbies coming in. Getting rid of rabbies in SWitzerland has been such a long slog, cost the lives of 1000s of 1000s of animals and cost a fortune.

Re: EMERGENCY- Rabies vaccine

Have you visited them? Seen your puppy with the mother and the conditions it was bred in.

So you went to the Vet near Crans-Montana and s/he refused to do the rabbies vaccine because it was supposed to be done after the microchip and then wait for a minimum of 21 days before import. By Law, the vet should have phoned the Cantonal Vet immediately and not let you go out of the surgery. Please, keep your dog inside- and do not allow any contact with other dogs- and he will have to remain in quaranteen for 21 days after you get the rabbies injection done. Not calling the Cantonal Vet is NOT an option- Randogne is a small place and the Commune will soon know that your dog is not registered, not tax paid, not Annnibis registered- and you have not done the compulsory dog owner's course. The longer you wait, the worse the situation will become.

Valais only got rid of rabbies in 1999- and there is the constant threat of it coming back- and they DO NOT WANT IT - that is for sure.

Thank you for the replies, so after calling the canton. i will have to do all the nessary things correct? and after receiving vaccine they will be the one holding dog for 21 days is that right? i have no problem doing all those. That is why i am posting here asking what to be done

What you want to hear: Yes, you can go to the vet and get the rabies vaccine for your dog.

What you don't want to hear: NO professional breeder falsifies documents. There is a high risk that something is indeed wrong with the dog and the breeder wanted to get rid of it quickly, before it was old enough for all the required vaccines.
I'm sorry to say this, but if the dog is taken away for medical reasons, it will be for the best (for other animals and people) and you should have anticipated this before bringing it in illegaly.

Professional enough to advise you on how to import the dog illegally, at any rate.

Re: EMERGENCY- Rabies vaccine

A good breeder would never take a puppy so young away from its mother- and yes, would not be bringing a dog in illegally. This is truly serious and very worrying.

If you give me the name of the breeder, I'd be happy to get the authorities to check them out and Swiss television and Press too. Rabbies endangers animals, wild and domestic, and people too- in the worst possible way. The Vet should have contacted the Valais veterinary service immediately.

Re: EMERGENCY- Rabies vaccine

Ok seriously, just bring it to the vet and get the vaccination. We cannot tell you what will happen after that, I don't think anyone here works in that department.
But you HAVE to bring your dog to the vet as soon as possilbe to get the rabies vaccination, to protect yourself, other people and other animals. Anything else would be negligent.

WTF....You seriously need to have a word with yourself. You must have known the age of the dog, that it was not old enough for the vac, and therefore any cross border movement without correct doc's and current vacc's is illegal.

Looking at the timelines it was this pup was borderline for being taken away from it's mother anyway, 9 weeks really being the earliest, so I hope that isn't compounding the issue with of forged papers? Did you make any attempt to view the dog, the dam and sire or the litter, or verify the of the age of the puppy... or just pick it off the internet like ordering a CD?

How can you possibly say the breeders acted professionally or you responsibly? The rules are simple, clear and there to protect animals from tossers who behave like this, why did you not go to the vet and the police immediately when the puppy arrived?

Personally I hope you are reported and fined, as that is the only way this sort of trafficking can be stopped.

Re: EMERGENCY- Rabies vaccine

Maybe your vet can explain better the illegal sale situation and some of the potentially catastrophic outcomes of your actions.

Re: EMERGENCY- Rabies vaccine

Yes, an extremely professional breeder who should know the rules.

"If the animals are under 12 weeks old, or are under 16 weeks old and were vaccinated against rabies after the age of 12 weeks but the 21-day waiting period has not yet expired, the owner must provide a declaration confirming that the animals have never come into contact with wild animals of a species susceptible to rabies.
Note: Young animals under 56 days old must be accompanied by their mother (AniPO, Art. 70 para. 4). "

Bet they never provided you with the declaration did they? How on earth can you even think they're "professional" when they used false documentation to get the puppy across the border?

As NotAllThere says you're too irresponsible to own a dog. For the dog's sake I seriously hope they do take it away from you.

A classic EF "burn the witch thread"

@OP: what happened, happened. Try to sort it out now and get the dog vaccinated.

Looking at the user name, I am guessing a Samoyed. It appears that there is a breeder in Zurich. http://www.samoyed.ch/en/ueber_uns.htm

Probably the OP found their puppy through some ad on the internet.

My message to the OP is this. If you wanted a puppy, then you should have gone about it the right way. Knowing the documents were forged and going ahead with the import of this puppy is a crime. I have no idea why the vet did not report you.
