    We just took our dogs to France and back on LD lines from Portsmouth to Le Havre. The fare cost £36 pounds return for each dog. Also you must get them checked by a french vet no less than 24 hours and no more than 48 hours before you arrive at the french port to return to UK. They need tapeworm and tick treatment and the vet signs the passport with the date and time that they checked the animal. This cost us about 25 euros for each dog.

    As for the initial cost of the Pet Passport it will vary widely depending on the vet you use. The main cost is the blood test which have to be sent off to a lab to check if the rabies jabs have been effective. That alone cost me £70.

    Which French Vet did you use ?

    Ralph - about £200 to get the passport and on the tunnel they charge to come back & not to go out to France (£36 seems about right as I recollect) :RollEyes:

    We used the vet in Granville, she was very nice and spoke quite good English
