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.
