If you are taking your pets overseas, our Vets can issue Animal Health Certificates which need to be issued within 10 days of travel.
Please contact us as soon as possible so that we can appoint an LVI Vet (qualification required for veterinary surgeons to issue these) to deal with your pet’s documents and to discuss the requirements for travel.
It is worth noting, that this is a changing document and owners should visit www.gov.uk/defra to find the up-to-date information on the country you are travelling to.
We always go by the advice from DEFRA on the UK government website.
It is the owner’s responsibility to ensure that all documentation is done within the correct time frame.
If you are planning a foreign holiday with your pet then it’s a good idea to check the details on their microchip are up to date before you go. We’ll check the details when you come it to get your Animal Health Certificate.
