There are certain requirements to meet including Vet Certificate & innoculations so please ask your Thai Embassy and Vet services in your country and also a freight forwarder if you are sending furniture etc to Thailand. Do not get the innoculations before you find out the time factors you have. eg a Vet Cert must only be 7 days old? In Thailand pit bulls are banned dogs. They must have rabbies injection. A good way is sending the dog by excess baggage but it is not cheap. There is no quarantine period as far as we know.
The usual UK vaccinations are needed - canine distemper , canine parvovirus - your clients vet will advise on this . Also needed will be Laptospirosis ( if not already administered ) ,and Rabies . All injections must have been administered at least 21 days before departure .Obviously your client will need documentary evidence that all this has been done . Normally the vet will record all injections in the animal record book .Take the extra precaution of having my vet list what has been treated for as some of the injections only go by trade names and these may not mean anything to a Thai vet . Better safe than sorry ..
An Export health certificate is required .Contact your local Department for Environment , Food and Rural Affairs and ask for form no 2917NFG. This will give all the bureaucratic procedures for exportation of animals to Thailand. Essentially an EXA 1 form will need to be completed and sent to a DEFRA approved vet in your clients area - they may even find that their own vet is DEFRA approved . The will have to examine the animal and declare it fit to be exported. It is important that the approval is very current . This is not something you can do months in advance . The regs in England say that the vet should note date the approval any earlier than 10 days before arrival in Bangkok. Get 72 hours before departure .
Your client will also need an IATA approved container for the Pet . Again the vet should know of a local supplier .
There are some "nasties " in Thailand that UK animals are not exposed to . Take professional advise about this matter. Basically what is needed is medication to protect a dog from heart worm ( the biggest dog killer in Thailand ), and something to protect from tick-borne diseases.
Get a shipping company that is used to this sort of thing to assist .A good travel agent will ensure that the dog will be on the same flight in the hold and he will provide you with a freight forwarder to whom we deliver the dog approx 4 hours before the flight. They ensure the dog goes to the correct place at Heathrow or any airport. None of this is cheap but it will take a lot off my mind at what will be a stressful time anyway..
