Hello, you are through to Dr Linda, a UK based vet.I'm afraid I don't fully understand your question.Is your dog being imported or travelling abroad?Where are you based?

I am based in York, my dog has come from Belarus and they have found that they have been brought in illegally and therefore need to go to kennels
Expert:  Dr L Simmon replied 19 days ago.
As the dog wasn't vaccinated for Rabies, they pose a risk to other animals and humans.They have to be quarantined. This is the law.

Further details can be found on the DEFRA website and you can call to speak to an advisor who can further discuss your case.
