Travelling Abroad?


The Pet Travel Scheme (PETS) allows pet dogs, cats, and ferrets from certain countries to enter the UK without the need for quarantine, as long as they meet
certain requirements. This scheme also allows UK residents to take their dogs,
cats and ferrets to other countries within the EU and return with them to the UK.
The Pet Travel Scheme also allows the movement of pets between the UK and
certain non-EU countries, provided that the rules designed to keep the UK free
from rabies are conformed to.

For details, visit the Defra website
The UK does not permit the importation of dogs, cats and ferrets that have not
been vaccinated against rabies. Once they have reached the minimum age for
vaccination (as stated on the vaccine manufacturer's datasheet) they must be
prepared in accordance with all the requirements within the EU vet factsheet on
the Defra website, taking account of the required order of preparation.

Pet ID microchips can be used for all animals using the Pet Travel Scheme and
many owners buy a Pet ID Identifier scanner to use whenever they travel abroad.
 Please contact us for further information if you are thinking of travelling with your
pet abroad.

Lost and Found
The Petlog database and Lost and Found Pet service is owned and run by
The Kennel Club as a not-for-profit organisation. Petlog register microchipped
pets and assist in reuniting them with their owners should they go missing. The
Petlog microchip database contains the details of over 4.3 Million microchipped
pets and their owners. Last year Petlog assisted with over 108,000 lost and
found calls from vets, police and animal wardens.

If Vicky microchips your pet, it should be registered with Petlog.

We believe that Petlog offers the most caring and professional pet reunification service. Petlog operates 24/7 and 365 days a year to help with the reunification
and registration of microchipped animals. We use Petlog ourselves and regularly
test service levels on behalf of our customers, that’s why we are confident that
Petlog provides the best possible service for professionals and pet owners alike.

In order for pet professionals to scan microchips and quickly re-unite pets with
their owners, details on the Petlog database need to be correct and up-to-date.

The advantages of being on the Petlog database
All Pet ID microchips in the UK are automatically registered with Petlog along with
Vicky’s details. Petlog is also the one database that all organisations involved in
animal welfare rely on. And it is also the only Pan-European service in the UK. For
details visit Europetnet (EPN)
