Important Pet Travel Scheme Update
If you travel to Europe with your dog you need to be aware of DEFRA’s update on the Pet Travel Scheme if there is a ‘no deal’ Brexit.
DEFRA has just announced their recommendation that pet owners planning to travel immediately after 29th March 2019 contact their vet at least four months in advance of travel to check what they need to do.
For example, if you are travelling on 30th March 2019 the recommendation is that you visit your vet as soon as possible, and before the end of November 2018 at the latest.
DEFRA have advised that you will still be able to travel with your pet to Europe after Britain leaves the EU, however you may need to take some additional steps to allow your pet/s to travel in a ‘no deal’ scenario.
Stay up to date with the latest advice by visiting www.gov.uk and searching “pet travel”.
