Planning on taking your pet abroad?
As a nation of pet lovers, many of us enjoy sharing our holidays with our four-legged friends. The Pet Travel Scheme (PETS) was introduced in 2000 allowing cats, dogs and ferrets to travel between certain countries,without being placed in quarantine, in 2012 the rules were relaxed further making it easier than ever for us to travel with our pets.
It is important to remember that when travelling with our pets they may be exposed to diseases which are not found in the UK (exotic diseases).
We recommend booking an appointment with us for after your holiday so that your pet can be checked post-travel and to ensure that your pet has had the advisable post-travel worming treatment.
DID YOU KNOW THAT 76% OF DOGS TRAVELLING ABROAD RETURN WITH TICKS?
