Animal Health, Feeds, and Livestock ID

State and federal regulations regarding the shipment of livestock and other animals across state lines support efforts to prevent, control, or eradicate animal diseases and prevent livestock theft.

Animal owners are responsible for complying with regulations when moving animals across state lines. Your veterinarian can help you with this process.

Traveling to Oregon

Please visit the animal import requirements database​ and choose the appropriate options to find out what is required before you bring your animal into Oregon.

Traveling from Oregon

Each state determines the requirements for animals entering from outside its borders. Talk with your veterinarian for assistance with this process. You may also call the Office of the State Veterinarian in the state of destination to learn the state's current import requirements such as the following:

  • Certificate of Veterinary Inspection (CVI)
  • Import permit
  • Vaccinations against disease
  • Tests for disease
  • Statements about the animal disease conditions of the area or flock/herd of origin
  • Other requirements the state determines are appropriate

The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) sets requirements for interstate shipment of some animals, for which there are state-federal disease eradication programs (cattle, swine, poultry).
