Sure - mine is costing so much because they have to be kenneled until the end of Jan on this side because we did not have the blood tests done in time :'(
The prices are for both sausages:

The Kenneling on the JHB side is aprox R15 000.00 (aprox 89 days)
The 30 day pre export Fee is R13125.00
Travel costs R 10944.06
Import permit R394.00
Quarantine at Qualified Pet services in Auckland is $9324
They would have been able to travel at the end of December but Onderstepoort is closed over December so none of the tests can be done  :tickedoff:

Sorry, but this first had me  ??? wondering what on earth the price of sausages had to do with Happy's cat dying, and then I realized after reading the next post that you were talking about dogs!  :2funny:

Linda, I am so sad to hear about Rusty's dieing!   :'(  Cannot imagine what you must be going through right now.  Hugs, friend!   :-\ :smitten:
lekker sweet as, y'all

Anyone know how much, approximately, it would cost (in total) to take a small dog like a miniature doberman pincher?
