Pet passports

Not that in concerns us, but Sandra said she thought Shadow would need a blood test.
According to the following information if he had a blood test after his first rabies jabs that is not so.
Pets that have previously had a blood titre test, and whose rabies vaccinations are up to date, would not be required to repeat the blood test before travel.

Scroll down the link for Rabbles vaccinations.

I think that is as long as we are in the EU Jan

Our vet is saying if we want to leave the UK with our pets some changes may be necessary following Brexit .... after March

Technically once a dog has a positive titre test and has regular boosters it should not be necessary to test again.

The titre test is to make sure the initial vaccine has ‘taken”. If it is positive then all is ok.

I have had Georgia tested as I always believed that the EU should not have dropped the testing. Most vets believe the same. Rabies is too dangerous to take risks with. We had one of our dogs fail the test when it was compulsory. It is a British law to protect us from Rabies the E U should keep its nose out.

We should all be treating for ticks before returning, too, imo.

And another thing! Why should we, a rabies free country, be expected to jump through hoops in order to enter Europe? It is all scaremongering from civil servants.

The Pet Passport was Made in Britain. It is designed to prevent pets from being quarantined when they enter from any country that does not enjoy a rabies free status.

Afraid I don't get it, although we had our 2 done because of going back to the UK for holidays, it's not compulsory and I doubt very much if any other dogs in this village, except maybe the hunters dogs, have had a rabbits jab.
I think this is someone getting there knickers in a twist. It was never needed to get OUT of the UK only to get the animals IN.

Since when has it not been a requirement to have the blood test?
Since when have the dogs and passports been checked entering the mainland of Europe?
When has anyone asked to see the dogs passport this side of the water except when you are returning to the UK.

You can tell a Vet from the rest of the hoi polloi when walking down the street - they all have a wide grin across their face when panicking dog owners give then over £100 a time to get a blood test done that may not be necessary...........



For Videos of the Aires we've used, Eurotunnel journeys and many other more obscure Videos have a look at - www.youtube.com/user/KeithChesterfield

When has anyone asked to see the dogs passport this side of the water except when you are returning to the UK.
That is because the current agreements - the paperwork etc is checked on the French side because the ferry companies are liable if the animal is LANDED in the U.K. after the approved time. Hence the ferry companies have the responsibility of checking FOR THEIR OWN SAKE.

of course, the lack of checking in the UK is a direct result of the current EU regs that the UK applies. They may not be applicable after 29th March unless some sort of deal is made. The UK will be condidered as. "Third Country" by the EU hence fifferent tequirementsmay exist including proof of blood tests.

It is a little late to start now if wishing to take a pet to the EU - the HM Gov site says that it takes 4 MONTHS to get everything sorted.... except for the "deal" which may now be sorted after nigh on 3 years within the next 40 days (or not).

Remember Jo Cox and what she stood for.

Any comments above are only MY OPINION and should be read as that.

Dave,
We used the pet passport scheme from 2000 and there never (last time was 2014) was an animal check when we entered Calais or The hook. Never have we been asked crossing any border for our or the dogs passports.
The scheme was only needed to take animals back into the UK
I'm sorry if I'm being a pain in the bum, but I still can´t grasp that the passport is needed to get into or onto mainland Europe.
We have always travelled with dogs and never have we been asked on this side of the chanel, except at the passport control in Calais going back to England of course, for their Passports, where would they ask for them as we no longer have and borders for passport control for humans I hardly think they will open them again for pets.
