Penza, 15 June 2016. PenzaNews. Rosselkhoznadzor issued an international veterinary certificate for a Savannah cat that will travel from the Penza region to the United States, after all necessary procedures.
“Before the departure, the animal spent 30 days in quarantine, where it was monitored by the Penza region Veterinarian Department,” the public relations officer of the Rosselkhoznadzor department in Mordovia and the Penza region Larisa Yakushkina told PenzaNews.
The animal’s owner was consulted on the rights for transporting cats, required vaccinations and documents, and anti-parasite treatments.
