Why Amivet?

Why should I choose Amivet as my official vet?

There are relatively few veterinary companies who have a proven track record in the export certification field and it is important to choose one with wide experience.

We offer an experienced, professional, reliable, ‘tailor made’ and competitively priced, advisory and certification service for food and other products of animal origin.

We can help you with your current markets and export health certificate needs, but as part of our advisory and certification process, also help you explore new opportunities. Our team of official veterinarians, with experience in all aspects of export, will be with you every step of the way.

Our expertise covers the export of fresh, frozen, and ambient products, as well as some live animals.

Some of our OVs are qualified to export:

  • Live poultry
  • Captive birds and hatching eggs
  • Zoo/laboratory/commercial animals including birds, reptiles, invertebrates
  • Ungulates (wild and domestic)

More reasons to use Amivet…

Named, single point of contact –

At each meeting, and whenever you need assistance or advice along the way, we will provide you with a single named contact for all of your exporting needs – so you won’t have a different or unfamiliar face turn up every time. This will also mean a consistency of approach on each occasion.

Well Connected

Our team also includes expert advisory consultants who have worked across Government, enabling us to review legislation and to answer any challenging questions.

Our proactive approach means that we will work with you to truly understand your business needs, allowing you to take advantage of our connections with industry bodies and associations, with whom we work closely to promote education and awareness of exports. We enjoy excellent links with the CIT, DEFRA, APHA, FDEA and other industry bodies, helping you to grow your business.


Although our head office is based in Cheshire, we travel extensively and have OVs and CSOs in different locations, covering exports throughout the UK. No matter where you are, we will more than likely be able to service your export needs. As part of the IVC Evidensia group, we can also work with their network of over 1,200 practices in the UK.

Working at times to suit you-

We pride ourselves on our professional and punctual approach and we guarantee to deliver your EHC within agreed timescales.

We can discuss your specific timing requirements, working to make sure that you always meet your exporting deadlines. We aim to be flexible where possible, and in certain cases, we may be able to ‘pre-inspect’ the goods, to avoid the logistical issues of having to be present during the actual loading process.

Client testimonials

Amivet have helped us with our food export needs over the last four years as both a consultant helping us to untangle complex regulations and as our OV, certifying export health certificates. Their technical knowledge, experience and patient practical approach has helped us reach overseas customers and grow our business and I have no hesitation in recommending them.

HC, Surrey

Amivet have given me great support over the past four years helping with exporting dairy products to various countries e.g. China , Australia . They are always helpful and very thorough, their attention to detail is second to none which is comforting as I know I can trust that they have checked any documents that I have sent. They will always go out of their way to help and if they are unable to help will always point me in the right direction.
