I am looking at needing a USDA license sometime next year. I have one established pair, intros for another pair in Feb. and third pair sometime late next year plus I'm looking at getting another female to try a trio with so if all goes well that will put me at 4 breeding females.So I have questions for those of you who have already gone through the process.

My first question is in regards to the Program of Veterinary Care. For most people is this something that you worked out with your regular vet?

My second question is what if you go down below the 3 breeding animal limit.

My last question is I'm looking at renting a place and the gliders are approved as pets. Has anyone rented while getting their license? Mainly I'm wondering how it works once you move if it's a simple matter of changing addresses or if you have to be inspected and everything all over again.

My first question is in regards to the Program of Veterinary Care. For most people is this something that you worked out with your regular vet? Yes and it is simply a signed/dated year log.

My second question is what if you go down below the 3 breeding animal limit. Then you need to contact and let the USDA know and you will no longer need to be licensed.

My last question is I'm looking at renting a place and the gliders are approved as pets. Has anyone rented while getting their license? Yes I have it is just the same as when you run your kennel in a home the vet will come and inspect that everything meets the USDA codes.

Mainly I'm wondering how it works once you move if it's a simple matter of changing addresses or if you have to be inspected and everything all over again.

If/When you moved you have 10 days to let the USDA know that you have moved, then schedule an appointment to have your USDA agent come and inspect your kennel and until they come and inspect your new location you can not do any USDA licensed business.

When I applied. They told me that there was no need for me to get a license as I only have 4 females breeding.
I dono but I may reapply this comming year to see what is said, as I also told them I do not plan on breeding anymore than what I have now. GL with everything!

I work with my normal vet, so you should as well.

I am unsure about your second question.

You last question, I would think you would have to let them know ASAP about what is going on.

GL!

Yeah I don't know that I'll need it. My original thinking was I would like to get a pair to produce color like a wf and a mosaic to pair together and I wanted to try and get a cinnamon female to pair with my boy Cebastion which would give me a total of 4 breeding females. Now I think though that I'm going to neuter my first breeding pair sometime next year so far she's had 4 joeys and on IP now so I think we'll call it quites and retire them soon.
I'll just wait and see what happens next year.

As far as the amount of gliders you have now, you may be rejected by USDA until you have at least 4. Several years ago, I had 2 pair and I called to find out about getting an application sent. After a 5 minute conversation with the lady on the phone, I was told pretty much that the inspectors have a lot on their plate already, and if I didn't have but 2 females breeding, they basically wouldn't have time for me.

I would suspect that if you went below 4 breeders, they would no longer inspect you. Ask the agent about that. Some things just plain vary between inspectors.

I now have a good many pairs and trios, so I am dully licensed.

I did work it out with my vet here in Missouri. He comes to my home once a year and he only had to fill out the form the first time, prior to my inspection from USDA. He only is required to sign and date it each time thereafter.

Since I am moving back to Arizona, I will have to start again with a new inspector and a new vet. I have already spoken to the vet in Arizona, and she has no problem with doing my yearly home inspections. Depending on your inspector, they may or may not require that you have health certificates done in office by your vet each year. I do not know if you will have to have a re-inspection if you move, it may be up to your inspector. If it's in their jurisdiction, they may not require it, but if you change inspectors with your move, you will more than likely need to start again like I am.

My inspector in Iowa only looked at them once the first year, and she didn't even ask about them after that. I do it anyway for my own peace of mind with my animals.
