Diseases from overseas "rescues"

Some people were questioning the accuracy of diseases coming into our country with overseas "rescues". here is yet another report with a new strain of distemper. We'd better hope this one doesn't get out, folk:

Wow, that is very scary. Safer protocols are needed to do this or the rescue of foreign dogs should stop. I have sympathy for these poor animals, but when all our animals are at risk it is irresponsible to continue the way they have been.

I do agree with more precautions - I just hope it doesn't turn into those being so strict it's impossible to travel - because they wouldn't just apply to foreign rescues, they'd apply to anyone bringing animals from affected countries. They do have country specific protocols though so they could add requirements from specific countries. For example, I have to have Perry checked for screwworm before every trip and the vet has to certify that he's free of it OR that he's been treated because of the specific country where we live.

They will probably just come up with another vaccine to further toxify our pets who are already suffering from vaccinosis.

I also think these are much bigger problems with (previously) neglected rescue dogs, who are mostly "street dogs", than it is with pet dogs like Perry, who are being transported back and forth by comparatively affluent owners who want to travel with them and have the where-with-all to do so. That type of dog is MUCh more likely to be up to date on vaccines and have had a life-time of proper veterinary care.

Vaccinosis is a real thing, but so are these diseases. No one would wish distemper on the dog of their worst enemy. We are VERY lucky that we live in a word where our dogs can be vaccinated for it. We just need to be cautious of over-vaccinating. There is a big difference...

Definitely - but in my experience law / regulation makers don't usually think in that level of nuance

This is a great point. For example, a house dog is subjected to the same rabies regulations as a farm dog who is outside 24/7.
