Pet Travel

Since leaving the European Union, we cannot offer Pet passports, you are now required to obtain an Animal Health Certificate (AHC) .  It is essential to plan ahead. 


The process of obtaining your AHC is as follows:

  • Your pet MUST be micro-chipped to be permanently identified and your pet has to be vaccinated against rabies.


We do NOT currently offer Animal Health Certificates but our reception staff may be able to help advise who can, they will have the latest information for you.


Travelling abroad puts your pet at risk of some exotic and extremely serious diseases. While abroad regularly (at least monthly would be advisable) use a product to kill ticks, and de-worm, get your pet a medicated collar to try and repel sandflies and do NOT allow your pet out at dawn and dusk when most insect biting occurs.


We strongly recommend insurance for both pet and owner whilst abroad.


It can be a bit of a mine field and we always suggest that you contact DEFRA by phone 01228 403600 regarding any pet export or travel plans. Even within Europe requirements differ from country to country.

What Our Clients Say

All my pets go here 4 dogs and one cat. Best vets we have ever used and defiantly would not use anyone else. Did my buddies eyes and his hernia successfully. Would trust these guys 100%. Excellent customer service and dedication from the receptionists, vets and vet nurses. It's good to see a vets actually care about the animals and not just profit.

Great veterinary practice! Reception are very welcoming and friendly. The vet that checked over my dog was very thorough and also friendly. I won’t take my dog anywhere else. I also had my bunny put the rest and they were so lovely, a few days later I received and sympathy card signed by the staff. Honestly can’t fault them.

Thank you, Angela Morely.

To all the wonderful vets and staff,


Your love and care for my beautiful Nanuke and for crazy, paranoid owner is beyond first class, even in losing her, there are not enough words to express my thanks. I am sure you will see me in the future, just not yet.


With love, Angela & Nanuke Lee xx
