Thursday January 2, 2020 by Nick Wood
For many people, their pets are just as important as their children (and you wouldn’t leave them at home when you go travelling) but, travelling with your pet will introduce a whole host of issues you need to address. Pet friendly Apartments or Hotels, pet friendly transport, trains planes and automobiles, cats, dogs, ferrets, they are all important and all need tender loving care when travelling.
Preparing to travel with your pet.
However you decide to travel, you need to make sure your pets are relaxed and comfortable and luckily there is a great range of pet travel products and services available. From pet strollers, pet carriers to fabric cages and kennels all at different price ranges. If you’re serious about pet travel then we supplied some suggested links at the bottom of the page.
Travelling into the UK with your Pet
Here is the guidance from the UK Government.
You can enter or return to the UK with your pet cat, dog or ferret if it:
has been microchipped
has a pet passport or third-country official veterinary certificate
has been vaccinated against rabies - it will also need a blood test if you’re travelling from an ‘unlisted country’
Dogs must also usually have a tapeworm treatment.
Your pet may be put into quarantine for up to 4 months if you do not follow these rules - or refused entry if you traveled by sea. Also, remember that you are responsible for any fees or charges that may be incurred.
Your pet must arrive in the UK no more than 5 days before or after you, or you’ll have to follow different rules.
You must use an approved transport company and route unless you’re travelling between the UK and Ireland.
You need to fill in a declaration confirming that you are not going to sell or transfer the ownership of your pet.
Before you travel
Check if the company you’re travelling with will accept your pet for travel - and how many they’ll accept if you have more than one. Do they need any proof that your pet is fit and healthy to travel, for example, a letter from a vet or certain information in your pet passport
