PET Travel Scheme - Note Changes Effective From 1 January 2012
The PETS Travel Scheme has opened up a large part of the world to owners travelling with their pets. For us in the UK it means freedom of movement between the UK and mainland Europe, providing we follow the correct procedures.
The crucial part to remember is that the dates are inflexible; if you miss a booster date for rabies vaccination then you have to start all over again. Similarly, the flea and tick treatment must be given at the right time, giving you just a 24 hour window to enter the United Kingdom.
As specialists in Pet Travel in Europe we can help you ensure you get it right. The critical date to bear in mind is the time and date for entering the UK.
