Taking your pets abroad

 

As of January 1st 2012 the pets passport has been simplified. If you want to take your dog, cat or ferret on holiday within the EU..

 

Firstly your pet needs to be microchipped - this is however something you should consider doing whether or not you are travelling abroad.

 

Secondly your pet will need a rabies injection and this information will need recording in a pets passport.

 

You will be able to travel in and out of the UK three weeks after the rabies injection. There is no longer any need for a rabies blood test.

 

Before re-entering the UK your pet will need treating for tapeworm. This must be done 1-5 days before arriving in the UK.

 

 

The regulations may be different if you are staying abroad for an extended period or if you are travelling outside the EU.

 

 

If in doubt check the government website www.defra.gov.uk/pets or phone the PETS HELPLINE on 0870 241 1710.
