Pet Travel Scheme
The Pet Travel Scheme (PETS) allows people in the UK to take their dogs or cats to other European Union (EU) countries and return with them to the UK without the need for quarantine. It also means that pet dogs and cats from certain countries are allowed to enter the UK without the need for quarantine as long as the rules are met. These rules are to keep the UK free from rabies and other diseases.
When travelling with your pet, the regulations vary depending on the country you are going to or coming from. Richard McCallum and Kate Sands here at Batchelor Davidson & Watson Ltd are Official Veterinarians enabling them to issue Pet Passports and certify any other necessary documentation. Please see the link below to the official government site and the Pet Travel Scheme Helpline, both will explain the regulations for travel.
We can provide your pet with the following prior to travelling abroad:
- Rabies vaccination.
- Pet passport or official third country veterinary certificate.
- Flea, worm and tick treatment.
- Full general health check before travel.
