Bullet for list which looks like a llama


Llamas, alpacas, and other camelid species need only a Certificate of Veterinary Inspection for importation into Idaho.

On May 28, 2014 Texas was the first state to have animals diagnosed with Vesicular Stomatitis (VS) this year. All livestock (including cattle, swine, equines, domestic cervidae, and camelids) entering Idaho from Texas must meet additional requirements. The animals cannot enter Idaho if they originate from a facility within 10 miles of a diagnosed case of VS. All livestock from Texas requires an entry permit listed on the CVI, as well as the following statement:

"All animals identified on this certificate of veterinary inspection have been examined and found to be free from Vesicular Stomatitis. During the last thirty (30) days; these animals have neither been exposed to Vesicular Stomatitis nor located within an area where Vesicular Stomatitis has been diagnosed."
