“The Tennessee State Veterinarian’s office rules state that all animals being imported into Tennessee are required to have a certificate of veterinary inspection (health certificate) from an accredited veterinarian within 30 days of arrival. State Animal Health Officials may be present at exhibitions and sales and require owners/agents to present these papers as proof of health.”
This will be the same protocol as our prior June show. The staff which is sent to verify health certificates are extremely pleasant and all went well with our last event. This only applies to OUT-OF-STATE exhibitors. We look forward to having many out of state exhibitors attend this event.
