At the moment there is still no decision on BREXIT therefore we are preparing in advance in case of a ‘no-deal’ BREXIT, where the UK becomes unlisted as a third country, and how this might affect you if you wish to travel with your pet to any EU countries.

The Defra website says: Pet owners would need to prove animals are effectively vaccinated against rabies before they could travel with their pet to EU countries. This would require a blood test to demonstrate sufficient levels of rabies antibody, which would need to be carried out a minimum of 30 days after any initial rabies vaccination and at least 3 month prior to travel. More information can be found on the DEFRA website here.  If you are planning to travel with your pet to Europe on, or soon after 29th March 2019, please contact the practice by 29th November at the latest, preferably as soon as possible to have your paperwork checked and a rabies blood test to be performed if required.

This is about making contingency plans in event of UK leaving EU with no deal.
