Rules for taking your pets to the EU after Brexit are changing.

To take your pet to the EU after Brexit you need to start preparing four months before you travel by visiting your vet for advice.

You must complete the following steps:

  • Get your pet microchipped
  • Ensure your pets rabies vaccination is up to date
  • Return to a vet at least 30 days after your pets last rabies vaccination for a blood test to check it’s worked
  • Wait three calendar months after a successful blood test before travel
  • Return to a vet within ten days of travel for animal health certificate
  • If your pets vaccinations are kept up to date you won’t need to repeat the blood test for each journey

If you need any advice, please get in touch.
