I've just called in to my vets here in France to book the wormer 'vermifuge pour visite en Angleterre' for our dogs as we are travelling to the UK shortly. No problems at all but the receptionist did check their French passports and that they were all registered with Icad. She also mentioned that French vets have now been told not to administer the wormer or stamp the passport if the animal isn't registered with Icad.

For anyone who has a French pet passport but didn't register with Icad, just a heads up that more vets are checking this now.

Please can you ask your vet for a copy of this directive (or whatever it is called) and who it was issued by. Many thanks.

Are you truly trying to say that dogs in France are refused medical treatment if they aren’t registered with Icad?

It's commonly available from Icad, Schengen visas, France visas and numerous other sources. I'm out at the moment but will have a look for one of the references when I get home

No, this is for the wormer which is required for them to travel to the UK. Vets will always treat a sick animal

Can you please give me the name and phone number of your vet, so I can have a chat with him/her?
I want to make sure that there is no misunderstanding, and as a French native, nothing will escape me.
Thanks
maz Tell me if you want specific questions to be asked. What I get is that it is for pets having a French passport.

Hi Frankie. What I would like to know is:

1. Who has this directive come from?
2. What exactly does it say?
3. What is its standing in actual law?

Many thanks, Frankie. (y)

I took our dog to our usual vet yesterday, for both a health check and a pre-crossing worming tablet. As far as I am aware, no computer-based checks were made. Passport signed and dated without problems. As said, it was our usual vet, so will have to ask on my next visit, probably September, about Icad.

As obviously the OP doesn't want to give her vet's details then I'm going to phone different vets especially in Britany but also in other parts of France and see what they tell me. I haven't got a dog anymore but I want to make sure, and I don't think this is something offensive, that pets owners are not being taken for easy targets.
This is highly annoying me. I'll make a few searches to see who can give me a proper information.
As far as I'm concerned, end of discussion. I will give the results to Maz by PM so she can relay what I found.

Good night all!
Amicalement
Frankie

The vet will have to give dogs the wormer for the dog to return to the uk French passport or not.

We went to two vets about three weeks ago in France. One gave rabies jab, and vaccine for kennel cough, and registered these in the French PP, not ICAD registered. Then another vet a week later, who gave worming tablet and registered this on the French PP.

What a load of rubbish ! I posted here to update members that vets are starting to check Icad registrations but I get shot down in flames by someone who appears to be looking for an argument. My dogs are now effectively French; I'm a French resident so I've followed the rules to the letter. If anyone wants to speak to me privately please feel free but I refuse to be drawn into an argument about this. Good evening all

Nobody is looking for an argument. You said that amongst other things French vets are now not allowed to administer worming treatment to gigs not on the Icad register. As far as I am aware worming tablets are medical treatment that may need to be administered for a variety of reasons. What about dogs owned by tourists from other EU countries? There may well be some law or regulation that links the issue of French pet passports to Icad registration, although I’ve seen no definitive proof of this, merely hearsay, for example this thread. I stand by my original thoughts that being unable to have worming tablets administered if a dog is not on the French Icad data base is total nonsense

I’m not particularly looking for an argument, but nor am I prepared to just accept a bald statement that doesn’t make any sense to me. Hence the request for more information. If this is supposedly a ‘rule’ then it has to be made publicly available so that we can follow it.

There are a number of posters on Facebook who will post what they regard as the ‘rules’, but they always fail to provide any evidence to back up their claims. Interestingly, most of them are drawbridge expats. MotorhomeFun has a fine tradition of not just meekly accepting what we are told but asking questions to get to the truth of the matter. Let’s keep it that way.
