We are going to have some dear friends visit us for a few days from the States and would like them to bring us some dextomax or the like . As it is half the price there as it is here. Does anyone know if they will be allowed to bring a case through Canada Customs at the border. They will be saying it is a gift but I would sure hate to have them pick it up only to be confiscated ;that would also be a lrg dent in my wallet .

I should just call Canada customs to be on the safe side ,I do know that we can go acroos and bring it over but not sure about visitors . :?

Thanks

Hillsdown; Bringing in pharmaceuticals etc. requires an end use certificate from the producer so I really doubt you can have it brought up by friends. Not sure on Dectomax but generic ivermectins are cheap enough here now that it's not worth the hassle or trip to import . Check it out for sure before you make any arrangements.

So what did Canada customs say?
Dectomax is about the same in price, but Iveron is worth the trip.

We had a 45 minute wait at the border on our last 'Iveron' trip and they held us up researching whether or not fly tags were permitted in Canada. They finally allowed us to take them because they could not find it in their books where they were disallowed, and urged us to get permission from Canada Customs before bringing more tags across. They have a huge selection of different fly tags down there, using differtent chemicals and I must say there are no flies on our calves this summer.

Stuff is so much cheaper down there. If only we could get vaccines.....

We should merge both countries and let farmers and ranchers decide on the rules for the new country. Send all the politicians to the middle east to help with their challenges :D

I am so very excited for our visitors to arrive and spend some quality time with them relaxing, eating good food and shooting the shytt. The bureaucracy and BS of our countries means nothing at this point when it comes to spending time with good friends :tiphat:

Just hoping they have a safe and pleasant journey from their beautiful state to our beautiful province . :D

Depends on the customs agent. I bring in vaccines regularly, spring and fall. Never been rejected. But I maintain that all of the local border guys hate their job and only met one guy on transfer who actually knew anything about ag products.

Grazon P+D cost me about $10/acre this year on the places where I put out three pints. That was the highest rate that I used.
