Connie Goes On Holiday

3rd May 2013

Connie is all ready to go on her holidays to France with her owners thanks to her new Pet Passport.

It is now so easy to go away to Europe. Connie already had her microchip implanted when she came to get her passport so she just had to have a rabies vaccine. Her passport was then issued and after waiting 3 weeks she will be ready to go.

Dogs have to visit a vet in Europe on the way home for a worming treatment which will get written in the passport. This is to prevent the import of a type of tapeworm we do not have in the UK which is dangerous for humans as well.

It is important to make sure animals have tick prevention treatment whilst they are in Europe as there are several tick borne diseases present that we do not have in the UK.

Connie can now go on holiday as often as she likes so long as she has her booster injections.Maybe next year she will venture a little further!

For further information about travel to Europe or further afield, please contact the surgery and speak to one of our vets. We are able to help arrange paperwork for travel all around the world.
