Missouri State Veterinarian Dr. Taylor Woods has asked his counterparts in other states to pass on the word - Missouri prefers that health certificates for large and small animals shipping to that state now be emailed to health.certificate@mda.mo.gov. For more information, call (573) 751-4260.

This request prompts a reminder that it's always good to check with the destination state to be sure you and your clients are meeting requirements, which vary widely from one state to another, and over time within any one state. The USDA offers links to all states' requirements and contact information for their State Veterinarian offices here.
