Yes you are correct, my contact in the EU has confirmed this: no taking meat/dairy products into France etc even if they are unopened and originated in the EU and are marked as such.

What a state we are in.


Any news about taking dog/cat food across yet?

What if you had a pet cow, could you take that

Dog and cat food CAN be taken into the EU but only if the following conditions are complied with;

1. You are only taking enough for a short period, I think one week....

2. The really BIG problem is that you can only take it if it is a specialist food, prescribed by a vet.,

In other words for Joe Bloggs and his trusty Mutt or Tiddles, no chance, stay away......

The EU is determined to avoid the risk that they may be contaminated by those filthy Brits.

Isnít it a good job that many pet foods are made by international companies such as Pedigree.....

AND, it is probably no more than FIVE TIMES AS EXPENSIVE as Aldi.

See, winner, winner, but no chicken dinner for Fido.

AFAIK the only exception is race horses and I have heard nothing about race cows.....

Any typo that I make means the errorists win.

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

Well they will have to exist on home cooked food

Meat, liver, minced beef and rice can be bought in Europe

The only tinned food shadow eats is butchers tripe

Does dry dog food count in the new laws ?

I doubt he will make a trip to Europe again , heís an old git and Iíd prefer to be close to home when the time comes to say goodbye

Isn't a race horse considered food?

Kev! Wash your mouth out!

The pet food problem could cause a real headache if you have a very fussy eater. Molly came to me with a reputation for not eating. She is severely underweight. I have never had a fussy eater due to my philosophy that a hungry dog will eat if you hold out long enough. A poorly dog, is a different matter. Anyway I managed to get hold of some Rocco tinned complete food (she has a mouth full of horrible teeth so does not eat dry food apparently) and she eats it with gusto. I am mixing it, now, with some new food which is cold pressed dry rather than ultra heated dry. It is called Tribal, is softer than normal dry, and I am very impressed with it after feeding it to Georgia. I don't know where it is made but the Rocco is made in Germany which is bringing its own problems because of importing it. The Tribal is very expensive but they do a wet version which I have bought and brought with us to try while away. My local pet shop is owned by a health nut so I will just take advice from him.

What is the position with bringing dog food into UK? I could make a killing on bringing in Rocco tins as it is very highly regarded in the dog nutrition world.

Brexiters. It's your sh1t now. Whatever happens nationally and internationally you own it. I wish you luck. I think you're going to need all you can get and then some. Friday 13th December 2019.
