The passport application can be done at any stage. We would ask that you to contact us and make an appointment to see the Vet to obtain same. We have the passports in the Clinic so you will be able to take it away with you after your consultation. If you wish to have a photograph of your pet inserted into the passport, please bring same with you on the day of your appointment.
Your pet will be required to have a rabies vaccination 21 days before they travel. This is a requirement for all countries within Europe EXCEPT France. France require a rabies vaccination to be done every year.
WORMING AND FLEA TREATMENT
A health cert will need to be completed by the Vet 72 hours before travel. Your pet will need flea and worming treatments to be applied and recorded on their passport at this stage.
The above are guidelines only and we always recommend that YOU contact the Embassy of the Country you are traveling to, and also the airline / carrier who you will be traveling with to ascertain their specific requirements, as some countries vary from others.
****UPDATE JANUARY 2021****
We recommend you visit the Department of Agriculture website at www.gov.ie and from there select the tab 'Pet Travel' from the right of the screen for the most up-to-date requirements.
