NEW! – Certificate of Veterinary Health Inspection– The Maryland Department of Agriculture Animal Health Section requires animals entering the State of Maryland to have a current veterinary health certificate from a certified vet.

The Animal Health Inspector for the Maryland Department of Agriculture requires all vendors to have a Certificate of Veterinary Health Inspection (CVI) for all vertebrate animals being sold at the show. This does not include feeder rodents or invertebrates. Any vendor not having a CVI will be asked by the Health Inspector to leave.

Repticon has arranged for a local vet, Dr. Keith Gold, to be present at vendor load-in on Saturday morning to issue the required health certificates.  There is no additional cost to the vendors for this service.

NEW! – Sugar Glider vendors must have a CVI for EACH individual sugar glider that will be for sale.
