    I just thought some of you travelers with pets to Europe might be interested in this bit of info ( I know I am)..in my French / English Paper, Connection
    It says this will come into force at the end of this year ...European Union rules
    They are thinking of scrapping the rabies test, so pet will no longer to have a Rabies blood test or have to wait the 6 months before they can travel to the uk for pets traveling from Europe
    Pets will also no longer need the tick and tapeworm treatment before travelling to the uk...(They are thinking of scrapping the the tick and wormer for pets traveling from Europe) ...as long as you are up to date with your rabies, chipped, to the uk by the end of this year !!!!!! we will wait and see ????:thumb::thumb::thumb:
    We vaccinate every year over her in France for Rabies ....... I think in the UK it is every 3 years
