|From one of our customers leaving the United States with her pet: When I was at the USDA getting the pups certified for export there were 3 other people there. Each one had huge difficulties with the wrong documents and other snafus that cost days of time and hundreds of extra dollars! (hotels, new vets, etc).
The man came to the counter with my documents an hour earlier than they projected and I was READY TO GO! Everything was perfect. Everything y’all sent was pretty straightforward and easy. Thank you!!
