In addition to the general provisions for the importation of
livestock, all dogs and cats to be imported into Oregon shall be accompanied by
a Certificate of Veterinary Inspection attesting:
(1) That such dogs and cats are visually free
from infectious, contagious, or communicable disease.
(2) That such dogs and cats have been
vaccinated against rabies in accordance with the recommendations set forth in
the "Compendium of Animal Rabies Vaccines," issued by the National Association
of Public Health Veterinarians, Inc., at the time of entry of the dog or cat
into Oregon. Each dog or cat must be identified by a dated vaccination
certificate. Puppies or kittens under four months of age are not required to be
vaccinated unless they originate in a quarantined area.
(3) That such dogs and cats do or do not
originate from an area under quarantine for rabies. (Only with special
consideration will a permit for entry be issued by the State Veterinarian for
dogs and cats originating in a rabies quarantine area.)
