Afert a call this morning to DSV, we are far in France of this sort of process... But it doesn't seem to disturb many people.
Unfortunatly, I don't know the deep reason

It could make move things, for us and our cats, to be more attentive..chat magenta


Après appel ce matin à la DSV, on est très loin en France de ce genre de procédures très encadrées...Mais ça ne semble pas déranger beaucoup de monde....
Je n'en connais pas la raison profonde malheureusement....

Cela pourrait faire avancer les choses, pour nous et nos matous, d'être peut-être plus vigilants.chat magenta

I made cat shows in many European countries and in states (not in UK).

Vet process seems to be nearly the same in all those countries. It means very light. In some shows, vets take some time to examine a little the cats. In some others, it's very very light ! I saw some shows where the vet examination was in the cages, during the show (too late !) or some shows where they 'forgot' to have a vet.

When there is not a national rule for vet examination, the rule is the one of the club.
For CFA or Tica shows, I think that there are at least recommandations from these Associations.
In Europe, I think that, in every country, the vaccinations are checked.
In fact, the quality of examination is very dependant of the club and of the vet.
