AnnieShine,

To bring a pet into the UK (including returning to the UK) you need to be compliant with the UK PETS scheme. Everything you need to know can be found on the DEFRA website:

http://www.defra.gov.uk/animalh/quarantine/index.htm


When in doubt, call the DEFRA hotline - the folks there are generally pretty helpful.
Actually, everything but one. I wasn't aware of this and couldn't find it on the site when I looked a few months back but once your animal is vaccinated and tested as long as you keep up with the vaccinations, you don't need to do the blood test again to bring it into the UK.

Very frustrating for me, I could be getting ready to move now instead of waiting until January for the six months to pass from the blood test.
