In order for dogs, cats and ferrets to enter the UK from, or re-enter the UK after having travelled to a PETS scheme EU Member or approved non EU countries, the following criteria need to be met:
• A microchip needs to be inserted (if not already in place) prior to the rabies vaccination (£15)
• The animal must be vaccinated against rabies (vaccination £72.35)
• A few days after, your vet will issue a PETS passport which you can collect from the practice (passport £45)
Dogs – When returning to the UK your dog must be treated for tapeworm 1-5 days before arriving in the UK.
This must be administered by a vet in the country you are staying in and recorded in the relevant section in the passport.
