Example 1: Costs of the services of a commercial provider of transport for pets. This includes hire of pet containers.

Example 3: Vet fees for sedating a pet when a vet or a transporter recommends sedation during transportation.

Guidance

Non-Example: A member's brother is a licensed plumber and has an Australian Business Number. The member's brother offers to transport the member's dog to the new posting location for $100. The cost of relocating the dog will not be reimbursed to the member because his brother's business is not transporting or boarding household pets.
