Travelling abroad with your pet dog, cat or ferret? You need a pet passport.
It’s never been easier to take your pet with you to the EU and some long-haul countries. In order for your cat, dog or ferret to come back into the UK without going into quarantine, you will need a valid pet passport.
We are delighted to be able to offer our clients this service. Kobus Engelbrecht and Ben Thomas are Official Veterinarians, meaning they are qualified to issue pet passports.
Before you start, there are two important things to remember:
Pet passport requirements
To get a passport your pet must have:
Talk to your vet
Pet passports only cover minimum requirements. The best way to keep your pet safe and well when travelling is to talk to us about any extra precautions that need to be taken. Ticks and biting insects, for example, can transmit disease in much of Europe; and we highly recommend you take precautions against these despite there being no mandatory tick control in the pet passport scheme.
*There are different requirements for some countries, so wherever you are returning from, it’s important to check the latest UK Government information about travelling with your pet well in advance of your trip. It is your responsibility as the pet owner to ensure all requirements are met.
