Re: HELP Need a vet who knows about UK papers

Do either of your dogs have a pet passport? If they do and the rabies vaccinations are all up to date and they have had the blood test done, then you shouldn't need any other paperwork, they also must have the microchip done. The only thing you should need after that is the tick and wormer treatment done by a vet and marked in the passport no less than 24 hours and no more than 48 hours before you travel to the uk. If you have any questions or need to check about any other paperwork you could contact DEFRA in the UK who should be able to inform you about what is needed. http://www.defra.gov.uk/wildlife-pet...ts/pet-owners/

If they don't have a passport, you would need to get one done, this requires a microchip to be done if it hasn't already, then a rabies vaccine given. After 2 weeks the vet has to do a blood test to check whether the vaccine has worked, which has to be sent off to a certified laboratory and marked in the passport. If the vaccine hasn't worked (unusual) another has to be given and another blood test done, if the vaccine worked, you then have to wait 6 months from the date of the vaccine to be able to enter the UK.

I assume this is still the same and hasn't changed, our GSD got her passport in the UK and this is how it worked at the time (6 years ago).
