New Montana Animal Health Permit May 

be Accessed Online

From a Press Release from the Montana Dept. of Livestock

 

November 2012 issue  

 

      A new online service offered by the Montana Department of Livestock allows veterinarians to obtain animal health import permits for horses and other equines 24 hours a day, seven days a week no phone calls needed!

      An animal health import permit is required for all equines entering the state. This includes equines owned by out-of-state residents as well as by those owned by Montanans returning home with their horses from out-of-state.

      MDOL offers three types of animal health import permits: Standard, extended, and six month. A standard permit is valid for 10 days from the date the permit is issued. An extended permit is valid for 30 days from the date the animal was inspected. A six-month permit is valid from the date a Coggins test is performed.

     In the future, MDOL hopes to expand the service to offer additional permits such as those required for dogs, cats and small ruminants as well as for some biological products such as equine semen.

     Equine owners transporting equines without a valid animal health import permit face a fine of up to $500.

            The cost for each permit is $2. Users can pay with a credit/debit card or bank account, or by signing up for the monthly billing option. Veterinarians can access the service at www.animalhealthimport.mt.gov to obtain permits.
