    Know what you mean:BigGrin:

    I am suprised we seem to be the only ones:Eek!:
    I did ask another local vet the cost and was told in all it would cost £230 so i think there is a lot of difference depending where you go, and would imagine the costs down south to be a lot higher.


    Regards

    Pets Passport

    Hi Jim, Can`t remember how much my dogs pet passport cost but I took him to the Vets in Adres, near Calais, three days ago. I took my own frontline and the dog weighed 22 kgs. Total cost was 36 euros. The only medicine administered by the vet is frontline plus one Drontal worm tablet and signing the Pet Passport. It is a rip off when you add the £30 return shipping fee imposed by Norfolkline and the animal stays in your own vehicle for the duration of the voyage.

    It says on Passports for pets .com the passport expires on the rabies renewal date does this mean these fees have to be paid annually:Eeek:

    Hi Geo

    As I understand it, to renew only requires a further rabies vaccination.. ~ £30

    Hi you vet will tell you when the vaccine runs out, ours for the cat is 3 years, but I believe some only last 2. you have to have your pet re-vaccinated before or on its due date, miss it by one day and you have do the whole vaccination procedure from scratch again.

    Hi Olley,

    After the renewal rabies vaccination, does the pet need another blood test to check for immunity again, ie, another 6 months wait?

    Jim, don't pussyfoot about with that wee dinky toy. What you want is one of these. :thumb:

    Morning all.

    My 3 Bichon Frise cost me £400 approximately and lasts for 3 years, I am sorry I do not remember the break down of the charges.

    I will be making enquiries when mine needs renewing whether I can just have a blood test to see if antibodies are still at the correct level.

    If the blood test is ok, then why should dog need to be vaccinated again.

    I do not agree with all these vaccinations and am sure they can actually do more harm than good. I do know that they can affect the immune system.

    They keep changing the rules anyway.

    Have a good day

    Lesley

    Morning Lesley,

    When we enquired about having our Bichon done, the costs were very similar. He has sadly been and gone, and we were pondering about getting another wee dog, but what a rigmarole folks have to go through.
    Is it really worth the hassle, and extra costs?

    Jock.
