    Many of you take your pets into Europe each year and one question that seems to crop up time and again is – 'Which Vet do I use for the Pet Passport scheme on the way back to the UK?'

    Now, help is at hand - http://goo.gl/maps/dGJM

    I have compiled a list of recommended Vets throughout Europe and have put them on to a Google Map - and also a printable Pdf document.

    The map is updated on a regular basis and the document on a monthly basis.

    So far there are over 120 Vets who have been recommended by Motorhome owners that I have added to the lists and I'd like to add even more with your help.

    Visitors to Europe, especially first time travellers, with a pet in tow find that looking for a Vet is just one more problem to encounter and if they, and us, know where to look en-route back to the UK then our efforts will help to allay their worries.

    Some of you just look in the French Yellow Pages (www.pagesjaunes.fr) and seek out the nearest one to you whilst in France but many prefer to know that their chosen Vet can possibly speak English, the opening times and which days, how near to the Vet they can park their MH and the approximate price they have to pay.

    As they say 'every little helps' - and if our input can help some Members on these forums to have an even more relaxing holiday then we have at least achieved something positive.

    Could I ask you to submit details of any European Vet you have used since the new DEFRA rules came in force on January 1st 2012 and I will add them to the present lists.

    Any up-dated information or corrections regarding the Vets already on the list is also welcomed.

    ScotJimland - thanks for the link.

    takeaflight, who made that map, gave me the idea of doing my own map and updating it on a regular basis.

    The Pdf list will be ready in the next day or so when I've finished adding the latest new Vets and I'll post a link on this thread when it's ready.

    cydersid - how do I get to the printable pdf document please.

    That's a good question!

    I can only upload Pdf documents up to around 19kb - and the Vets List is about 182kb.

    So how do I upload a document 10 times the allowed limit?
