*****PLEASE SEE OUR NEWS PAGE FOR UPDATES REGARDING PET TRAVEL POST BREXIT*****
Planning ahead and thinking of taking your dog or cat abroad with you this summer?
Following changes made to the Pet Travel Scheme (PETS) means holidaying with the WHOLE family has never been easier!
In order to avoid quarantine for your pets this year all you need to do is follow 3 simple steps:
1. Microchip your pet (special offer price £18.50)
2. Vaccinate your pet against Rabies
3. Collect your PETS passport, which will be issued and signed by your vet
You are then free to take your pet abroad, to certain countries, just 21 days after receiving the rabies vaccine. Whilst it is no longer mandatory to apply a tick treatment prior to returning to the UK (although still advisable), your pet still MUST be treated, by a vet, for tapeworm 1-5 days prior to returning to the UK. This must also be recorded in the PETS passport in order to re-enter the UK.
