Pet Travel Scheme

Does your pet deserve a holiday? The Pet Travel Scheme has been under operation for about 10 years and allows your pet to travel with you between affiliated countries without the need for quarantine.

The rules have recently changed and there is no longer a blood test required.

Step 1: Get your pet microchipped.

Step 2: Come in for a health check and a Rabies Vaccination with one of our “LVI” Vets. We can then issue your pet’s passport.

Step 3: Your pet may travel 21 days after the rabies vaccination. NB some transport operatives will require a health check prior to travel.

Step 4: A tapeworm treatment is required before travel back to the UK by an affiliated vet.

We would always advise all vaccinations are up to date prior to travel as well as routine flea and worm treatments.

For further information please contact your local Budget Vets branch. If you are planning to travel to a country outside of the PETS Travel Scheme please contact DEFRA (08459 33 55 77).
