What do you need to do?
Microchips are required for every pet that you wish to take abroad.
A rabies vaccination will need to be administrated to your pet once a microchip has been inserted. This can be done during the same consultation. Your pet must be at least 12 weeks old before they can have the rabies vaccine.
A client questionnaire must then be completed regarding intended travel plans (please request a form from our reception team).
You can then make an appointment for an ‘Official Veterinarian’ to complete an Animal Health Certificate (AHC):
This appointment must be NO MORE THAN 10 DAYS before you travel
At least 21 days must have lapsed between the rabies vaccination and issuing of the AHC.
You will need to bring proof of:
Your pet’s microchipping date
Your pet’s rabies vaccination record
Not all vets are authorised by the government to issue Animal Health Certificates so please inform reception so they can book you with a suitably authorised vet.
