A certificate of veterinarian inspection (CVI) is required by states for travel between states (interstate travel) and in some cases, travel within a state (intrastate travel). A certificate of veterinary inspection, also called a health certificate, ensures that your livestock/pet has been checked recently by a veterinarian and that the animal at the time of inspection showed no indications of illness.
At Vet Sentry, we help speed of the process of producing certificates of veterinarian inspection.
Why are CVIs Required?
Contents of CVIs
From state to state, certificates of veterinarian inspection may look a little different. However, generally the following information will be included on all CVIs:
- Place of origin: Contact name, phone, location, and email
- Destination information: Point of contact, email, phone, and location
- Transport information: Reason for movement, date
- Identifiable factors of livestock: breed, age, color, sex, permanent ID (tattoo, microchip)
- Veterinarian information: Clinic, name, address, accreditation number
- Certificate of veterinary inspection information: Number, date of issue
- Test info for infectious anemia (EIA): Test date, test results, lab where test was performed, lab ID number
CVI requirements depend on each state, current disease conditions, and show or destination.
At Vet Sentry, we provide a simplified method for finding animals and certificates linked to their movements. Our goal is to provide a reliable search and retrieval system with an interface that is user friendly, requires little to zero training, and delivers the results you need as a state veterinarian.
