Pet Passports

daschund and suitcaseTaking your pet abroad can be complicated, but we are here to help.

The Pet Travel Scheme (PETS) is the system that allows pet dogs, cats and ferrets from certain countries to enter the UK without quarantine as long as they meet the rules. It also means that people in the UK can take their dogs, cats and ferrets to other European Union countries and return with them to the UK. They can also, having taken their dogs, cats and ferrets to certain non-EU countries, bring them back to the UK without the need for quarantine. The rules are to keep the UK free from rabies and certain other diseases.

The UK does not permit the import of dogs, cats and ferrets that have not been vaccinated against rabies. Once they have reached the minimum age for vaccination they have to be prepared in accordance with the law, taking account of the required order of preparation. We can advise you how to prepare your pet for travel, and make sure you satisfy all the rules.


We can make it easy to for you to travel with your pet.
