Lucky you !!veterinary surgeons in australia have a licence to print money I cover weekends for a practise here on the darling downs, its embarassing having to charge 150$ just for call out and then come the treatment costs as well, Even though I studied in Heidelberg and Konstanz as part of mymasters, QLD does not recognise my qualifications, but they were willing to allow me to instruct students in their final 6 months practicum, at QU in Brisbane and Gatton, by the way the flights are not so expensive, emirates charge about 2000$ australian return brisbane munich, I was working on a captive breeding programme for Redtail black and Moluccan Cockatoo,s,the birds were surgically sexed by Queens land university veterinarians, the % of false results was unbelievable, a vet in oakey sold us our pedigree miniature dackel, who should stand 11 inches high and full grown weigh under5lbs, our little one stands 18 inches high and weighs about 30 lbs give or take a kilo, and she looks like a terrier, where as my training took 7 years and covered all aspects of creatures exotic or domestic,, english vets coming to australia ,have to start a whole new learning curve, as far as australian wildlife and farm animals are concerned, luckily I am over 75 now and can pick and choose what and where in the world to lecture or teach, unlike herein queensland, anyone can set themselves up in practise and if the right palms are greased you have no problems what so everUK which, like Germany and the rest of the EU is a Group 3 country. He’s entered Australia twice, first time he came from a List 1 country with a cat and they both spent month in quarantine.
The expensive bit is the flight; you have to shop around the agents. There are limited pet slots long haul. KLM fly pets as unaccompanied baggage to Aus
My OH is a veterinary surgeon BTW as is my business partner.
