Pet passports


Over the last few years many of our patients have entered the jet set lifestyle visiting many countries abroad.

Below is the important information for the Pets Travel Scheme. The following requirements must be met before we can issue your pet with a passport.



An ISO standard identichip must be implanted in every animal wishing to travel. A rabies vaccination must then be given after implantation. Your pet is then able to leave or enter the UK after 21 days. Rabies vaccinations need to be regularly kept up to date and currently it is necessary to boost both cats and dogs every 3 years in the UK. This must be done before the expiry date entered in the passport by the certifying veterinarian, otherwise your pet must wait 21 days as above after re-vaccination. Once microchipped and vaccinated and waiting 21 days, your pet can then enter and leave the UK as often as you like as long as their rabies vaccination is kept up to date.

There is a section within your Pet Passport for dogs only that will require completion by a veterinarian. All pet dogs (including assistance dogs) must be treated for tapeworm not less than 24 hours and not more than 120 hours (1-5 days) before it's scheduled arrival time in the UK.

Tick treatment is no longer mandatory (but we advise it on health grounds for both you and your pet).

Your pet must enter the UK with an approved transport company or by an authorised route if bringing privately.
