    Oh i see. Thank you.
    Yes we dont have trouble getting the tablet in him. Its keeping it in him.
    We dont even try now. We just get him tested instead every 3 months and keep everything crossed. He doesnt eat dead animals or any other vile things and is thoroughly flea treated so shouldnt get worms and thankfully hasnt (touch wood).

    2 dogs, 2 cats all anti-rabies injected, boosters after 1 st year then every three years. No reactions in any of them.
    Never reacted to wormers either and you can always take your own to the vet to administer.

    Unfortunately it doesn't matter what protection you take or have done, the authorities requirements must be met as regards French vets (other countries also apply) to enable the animals to get back into the UK

    It's an extremely easy process plus it saves us £100's by taking her with us and not using kennels plus she loves it and everyone loves her

    On this subject can I ask...... we choose not to have our two dogs vaccinated in the UK annually as we have read studies about the adverse reactions that they can sometimes cause, epilepsy, strokes and as they are part of our family we would not consider putting them into kennels even if allowed. After all we do not vaccinate children each year and they survive. However we do understand the rabies injection is required for the Pet Passport but are the other "annual" jabs? Our dogs are chipped before anyone says they need that. Many thanks

    A simple answer is NO. Our dog is French-born and we have never been advised to have annual injections, other than for rabies.

    Our little horror (as shown in my avatar) is the product of a poodle x Jack Russell mother and a Pincher father. She has never shown an adverse reaction to the jab (given annually her in France) or the worming treatment (Drontal or Milbemax). However, I do sometimes have to give her the tablet in a ball of paté.

    So why are the "other vaccinations" dhippl etc; all encapsulated in the passport as well as the rabies if you do not need them ?

    We've had 5 dogs over the last 13yrs and all have had rabies jabs and without any issues, no side effects that we have noticed. No issues from the worming either.

    Dogs have been:

    Hungarian Vizala
    Border Terrier
    Irish Terrier
    Cocker Spaniel

    Hope that helps
