    My father-in-law seems to think i need to get my animals "vetted" in order to move them across the country. has anyone heard or know anything about this?

    BTW the vetted thing is a clean bill of health sighed by a vet, a horse person told him that. I want to know so I can do it asap if I have to.

    Your moving to PA right? Every state has different laws on this. This site will give you each states individual laws: http://www.aphis.usda.gov/import_export ... ates.shtml

    Mostly likely you will need a health certificate dated within 30 days of moving the goats along with Brucellosis(sp) and TB testing.

    It's in the drop down box near the bottom of the page. Underneath the follow words: "To locate Import regulations for a particular state, please select the appropriate State from the following list:"

    Anytime you cross state lines you should have a Health Certificate. This applies for shows, moving etc. Just in case you get stopped. Some people do it without but its a risk should you get pulled over.
