Holidays abroad are the highlight of the year for many families. A bit of sunshine and the chance to relax, provide a welcome break from the daily routine.

For many people it is unthinkable to leave their beloved family pet at home and this is where Pet Passports come into play.

At The Mount we can talk you through the procedure of getting a Pet Passport so that if you do go overseas you are able to abide by the rules to allow you to bring your pet back into the UK on your return from Europe without them going into lengthy quarantine.

We will ensure you pet has the required microchip and if not will make sure this is done before the passport is issued.

Any distinctive markings will be recorded and if your pet is a cross, we will list all its breeds. An appointment for the necessary rabies vaccinations will also be arranged.

We will point clients to the Defra website so they can research all the information needed when taking out a Pet Passport.

Once the document is issued arrangements will be made for you to return to The Mount where you will be asked to sign it in front of a member of staff as required by law.

We will provide you with any medical protection that your pet may need depending on where in Europe you are travelling and what health issues are prevalent in that area at the time of travel.

 

 

 


Due to the uncertainty of Brexit, if you are travelling with your pet this year please contact the surgery for up-to-date advice.
