After the microchip has been implanted your pet will require a rabies vaccination (this can be done on the same day as the identichip but this must be implanted first).
You must wait 21 days after the vaccination (or the last of the primary course of vaccinations) before your pet can enter another EU or non-EU listed country.
After the first vaccination and waiting period, you can enter the UK whenever you like as long as booster vaccinations are given on time, booster requirement can be discussed with our vets.
Rabies vaccination rules differ for pets entering from outside the EU or from Non-Listed countries and will require blood tests 1 month after the injection was given to ensure that the vaccination was effective. After a satisfactory blood test there is a statutory 3 month waiting period before entry to the UK can occur. If this test is negative you will have to re-vaccinate your pet, so it is important to plan well ahead of travel.
Your pet can now be issued with a Pet Passport by one of our Veterinary Surgeons.
