Pet Travel Scheme (PETS)

The Pet Travel Scheme (PETS) allows the movement of pet dogs, cats, and ferrets across UK borders without the need for quarantine, as long as they meet certain requirements designed to keep the UK free from rabies. All EU countries are included in the scheme and some other countries that have sufficient regulations in place are also included.  Essentially, the scheme also allows UK residents to take their dogs, cats and ferrets to countries within the scheme and return with them to the UK without the need for quarantine.

Our microchips can be used for all animals included in the Pet Travel Scheme and many owners buy a scanner to use whenever they travel abroad.

Please Note

The UK does not permit the importation of dogs, cats and ferrets that have not been vaccinated against rabies. Once they have reached the minimum age for vaccination (as stated on the vaccine manufacturer’s datasheet) they must be prepared in accordance with the requirements as laid out on the Defra website, taking account of the required order of preparation.
