What exactly does the vet do when they come over the house for the USDA papers?

I think they check out your cages see how the gliders are and so on and so forth. I will tell you when I get inspected <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />!!

My inspector was very nice. First she checks all the cages to make sure they have plenty of room to run and climb, jump.
She made sure the had somewhere warm and soft to sleep. She also look for rust on my cages. All my cages were covered but she did comment that she didn't like to see food on the walls or in the floor. Also make sure your cages are not sitting on the floor.
She selected at random to see my gliders. Out of 14 she checked 6.
She ask about there diet and made sure all dishes and water bottles were clean and they all had water. My gliders have their names on water bottles and food bowls so they always get the same dish just in case I have a sick glider.
She also made sure that my pouches, dirty pouches and toys, etc. were in a container and labled.
That is pretty much it and then she went over how to fill out all the paper work and said she would see me again within 45 days to make sure I was on track....

Cool sounds like I will hopefully pass inspection. What was your arrangement with your verterinarian? Don't they have to sign something or come over or something like that?

In with your packet will be papers for your vet to fill out. Your vet has to visit at least once a year. I just went and explained to my vet what I needed and he came out and done what is called a farm call. He checked my gliders and filled out my paper work and our agreement is he will visit once a yr to make sure they are healthy and I am providing good care. We will also do some fecal floats during the year. The farm call just for him to come out was 40.00 then I will be charge for anything extra after that.
