  • Can I take my pet abroad after Brexit?

    Posted on by Abii Dowdy

    We have updated our previous blog about pet travel in response to the latest release from the APHA. They have issued the following requirements for all pets travelling to the EU in the event we have a no-deal Brexit.

     

    • All pets will need an up to date rabies vaccination followed by a blood sample testing for rabies more than 30 days prior to travel. These results must be >0.5iu/ml.
    • Owners must wait 3 months after the blood sample date before travelling to the EU.
    • A health check and an animal health certificate is to be issued which is valid for single entry in to the EU for up to 10 days after being issued. This certificate will also be valid for further EU travel and the return to the UK for up to 4 months from issuing. The pet will also need to travel with proof of the rabies vaccination and a copy of the blood test result.
    • Treatment with tapeworm prevention between 1-5 days before returning to the UK.

     

    If you are considering travelling with your pet in the next few months, please contact one of our small animal vets to talk you through the necessary requirements and to start making a plan for your travels.
