Clearance from Veterinary Authority for pet dog

Post Posted: Mon Jul 23, 2007 7:53 pm

Hello

I live in the UK and I am hoping to move to Malaysia in the next few months. I am bringing my pet dog with me. I have been in touch with the Department of Veterinary Services for the necessary paperwork etc. I was considering going to Kuantan but they have said that I will have to clear him at KLIA entry point because they don't have the facilities in Kuantan, he is a big dog in a big crate and the thought of taking him off the flight and having to check him in again is nothing short of horrendous. I suppose I would have the same problem if I was going to Langkawi which was one of my other options. I am not leaving him in the UK before anyone suggests it. Has anyone any useful advice or maybe gone through this experience themselves? Sad

Just wondered how you were going with your move. I also have a big dog and have been looking around for a good place to stay in malaysia but am finding it difficult. I wonder if you have moved already with your dog and where you ended up? I have recently returned from Malaysia and was disappointed that the country is not so dog friendly although I met several dog trainers in KL. Perhaps you would be interested in looking at their web site. It is puppy.com.my a very active club. Good luck meanwhile
