First founded in 1979 to provide professional, competent and caring pet transportation relocation services around the world.
Dr. Gerry has lectured fellow pet shipping colleagues at the IPATA Asia Regional Conference in Kuala Lumpar (2014) and at the Bali Conference (March 2015), as well as having the privilege to speak at the IPATA International World Conference in Rome , October 2015 . As an expert in the field of Pet Relocation Dr. Gerry's experience and knowledge as a veterinary surgeon has him frequently invited to lecture on animal health and welfare topics. It is not uncommon for other agents seek Dr. Gerry's professional opinions regarding pet relocation.
During October IPATA held their International Pet Shipping conference in Rome, Italy, with 230 attendees. IPATA is The International Pet and Animal Transportation Association. All professional pet shippers are members of this association. The association also has relationships with many airlines, IATA (International Air Transport Association) and government agencies. Dr Gerry was invited to speak at the conference to educate and advise other members on shipping "snub nosed" (brachycephalic) dogs. The information that Dr Gerry presented was related to veterinary anatomical and physiological aspects and was very helpful to non veterinary shippers to understand a little more about shipping these breeds of dogs and cats.
