As well as ensuring your pet is protected against Rabies, it is important that you remember to protect your pet against the parasites they will be exposed to when you travel.
Travel regulations are not designed to protect pets against parasites. There is no single treatment that covers all the parasites.
An assessment of the risks facing your pet is needed, which will depend on which countries your pet will be going to and the time of year the travel will be taking place.
To find out more about appropriate disease prevention measures, please contact your local branch of Cinque Ports Vets and ask for a Travel Clinic appointment with your qualified veterinary nurse.
Ideally the travel clinic appointment should be made one month before your intended departure abroad as some of the disease prevention products need to be given well before potential exposure to parasites. We will also confirm that your pet’s microchip is still active.
