Taking a few minutes to educate yourself about travel risks could save your pet’s life
When travelling abroad you pet becomes exposed to diseases that aren’t present in this country. All dogs returning to this country from Europe must therefore be wormed between 1-5 days before returning. This has to be carried out by a vet and recorded in their pet passport. Failure to do this will delay your journey.
Diseases that your pet comes into contact with abroad include Heartworm, Leishmaniosis and a number of tick borne diseases.
Please contact our surgery and let us know your travel plans so that we can advise you about the best preventative treatments for your companion.
