  • If you are a vet and are coming for a visit it would be great to contact the clinic 3 weeks before and ask if there is anything needed urgently as our drug orders take 2 months to get here. You will need to let TAM know exactly what you are bringing in so a Bill of Lading document can be forwarded to you to carry with the drugs through customs.
