A probable dialogue between the veterinarian and the owner of the cat about what needs to be done to enter Serbia with the cat

Owner: Good afternoon, I am planning a trip to Serbia with my cat. Can you tell me what all the necessary procedures are?

Veterinarian: Good day! Yes of course. First and foremost, your cat must be microchipped. The microchip should conform to ISO standards 11784 or 11785.

Owner: Is there a specific deadline for microchipping?

Veterinarian: The microchip must be inserted before the rabies vaccination. Also, your cat must have a valid rabies vaccine. Vaccination must be done at least 21 days before entering Serbia.

Owner: And what about the health certificate?

Veterinarian: Sure, you need an international health certificate for your cat, issued by an authorized veterinarian. The certificate confirms that the cat is healthy and ready for the trip. In addition, it should include rabies vaccination and microchip information.

Owner: How long is the health certificate valid?

Veterinarian: The health certificate is usually valid for 10 days from the date of issue for entering Serbia. I recommend that you do all the procedures as close as possible to the travel date, but taking into account all the necessary deadlines.

Owner: Is there anything else I should know?

Veterinarian: It is important to check whether the rules have changed before traveling. Sometimes the requirements can change, so it's good to keep up to date with the latest information. Also, some carriers may have additional requirements for transporting pets.

Owner: Thank you very much for this information. This helps me a lot.

Veterinarian: You're welcome, I'm always here to help. Have a good trip and I hope you and your cat enjoy Serbia!
