"No quarantine for pets entering the UK." Sounds fantastic! Still, the details to attend to before Fido, the kitty, or the ferret, are ready to leave for their flight to the United Kingdom add up.
Pets have always flown to the UK as manifest and booked air cargo. DEFRA regulations do not permit pets in the passenger cabin.
Air Animal clients can keep track of vaccination certificates by uploading them to their Air Animal Pet Portal accounts.
Or you might ask your veterinarian to scan your pet's microchip and give your pet a one-year rabies vaccination at least 21 days but less than one year before your travel date. That way, no matter the rabies vaccination history, you only have to keep up with one vaccination certificate instead of several.
Please register with a local veterinarian to keep your pet's rabies vaccination up to date. Veterinarians typically send reminder notices when vaccinations are due.
Also consider having your U.S. veterinarian run a complete blood count, a differential and chem panel on your dog or cat before moving. Take the report with you to share with your new veterinarian. If another move is in your future, you and your pet will be ready.
