pet passports for dogs and cats

Pet Passports

You can enter or return to the UK with your pet cat, dog or ferret on the Pet Passports scheme if he/she:
1. Has been microchipped.
2. Has a pet passport or third-country official veterinary certificate.
3. Has been vaccinated against rabies and a period of 21 days has elapsed since vaccination. He/she will also need a blood test if you’re travelling from an ‘unlisted country’.
Dogs must also have a tapeworm treatment no less than 24 and no more than 120 hours before travelling back to the UK.
Your pet may be put into quarantine for up to 4 months or even refused entry if you don’t follow these rules. As a result you would be responsible for any associated fees or charges.

All of our vets are Animal and Plant Health Agency (APHA) certified Official Veterinarians or OV’s. This means they are allowed to complete and certify pet passports. For more details and pricing please call the practice to talk to us.
