Other non EU country's it's international Heath cerf.
But if the are British protectorates you might have other tests
Including a titer.
It's best to call the embassy in USA to find out.
I'm sure noon side thinks they are putting out the current info
But I checked and details like the blood titer were left out.
If you don't follow the rules, do the certain and required tests
No amount of money will keep your pets from government
Seizure. Many read thier book and follow thier rules!!
Also each country requires you to contact the by fax, fill out a form and pay a fee.
In the carribean, you can use a vet to do this, paying him one fee to fax
All the places your going. I'm sure other country's may have someone
To contact to do that too.
We were told by cruisers the never got the certain and never got stopped. We got boarded in Bahamas 2x, in Samana,DR 3x and the coast guard and navy's of many
Country's do ask for the dogs doccuments.
I was glad I spent the time finding out what I needed.
Another tip, never wave to the coast guard to be friendly,
Your only inviting them to board you.

I guess what that tells one, is that whilst by and large many cruisers don't get asked for a dog's documents, if you are suddenly asked by an official, make sure you have as many correct documents as possible. I suppose that is prudent thinking anyway.
