Pet passports

If you are thinking of taking your pet abroad you need to plan ahead, and you will require a passport for your pet. Talk to our helpful staff today about how we can help you to get a passport issued for your pet.

As a valued member of the family, many of us want to take our pet abroad to enjoy a family holiday. If you want to take your family pet on holiday abroad with you, you must plan ahead because to avoid quarantine at the UK border your pet will require a pet passport to be issued under the Pet Travel Scheme administered by the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA). Our experienced veterinary surgeons can advise you on how to go about obtaining a pet passport, the costs and procedures involved depending on where you intend to travel to. In all cases your pet will need to be micro-chipped, and vaccinated against rabies.

Our veterinary surgeons can also offer assistance if you and your pet are leaving the United Kingdom for an extended period of time, or emigrating. They are also able to offer advice on flying with pets, and how to safely transport your pet on holiday with you, as well as advising you of any legal requirements about transporting or travelling with your pet.
