Evening All,

This may be a bit of a daft question but here goes. Our two mutleys have pet passports and we have a chance to go out to France at the end of May. The rabies vaccination was done for them both in March 2018. Do we have to give them both a booster before we travel at least 3 weeks in advance? I've read that the vaccine last 3 years so am a tad confused.

Thanks in advance :)

No, you donít have to give them a booster and now that we have an extension to leaving the E.U. till October, nothing has changed regarding the pet passports. Youíll still have to get the worming treatment and passports completed between 5 days and 24 hours before returning. Go for it and enjoy!

The rabies vaccination lasts 3 years - your dog's passports should be dated with when the jab was valid from and until. You may be getting confused with this Brexit business of having to also have a blood test to check the vaccination has worked. I recently had to get my whippet vaccinated again as it was due to run out and there was a certain window between having it done, having a blood test and travelling to France. Bit mad about paying £170 'just in case' because the blood test might not some into force. Best thing to do is check with your vet or look on here: https://www.gov.uk/guidance/pet-travel-to-europe-after-brexit. There is also something on there about a health certificate. Sorry - I've probably made you even more confused than your were!

I've just checked the passports and the until date is exactly a year so am even more confused. I'll give the vet a ring next week and see what the score is.

I think there are different types of rabies vaccine. One lasts a year and one lasts three years.

Normally a UK Vet will give a three year Rabies treatment and perhaps it might be worth asking your Vet why they only gave one year.

Or use a different Vet if you're not satisfied with the answer .....

The problem is that the extension can be cancelled at any time before October so to be absolutely certain the only guaranteed way is to plan for the worst!

If for whatever reason your vet has given your dogs a 1 year injection and you've let it expire then the passports have expired, you have to have the booster before the first injection expires, so it's new passports I'm afraid.
As has been said it's normally a 3 year injection, who'd have thought your vet would want you to come back yearly

Ahhh, I can't believe that we will need new pasasports but I guess that is our own fault for not checking the expiry date of the injections. Sigh....

You will NOT need a new Pet Passport - but if the Rabies treatment has run out it will, obviously, need redoing.

Make sure it's a 3 year booster and once that has been done you can take your dogs abroad.

There is a 3 week (21 day) time scale from having the Rabies treatment until the dogs are allowed back in the UK.

If you are going abroad for three weeks or more there is no problem but if your return is within 21 days then you'd need to make sure you don't go too early and therefore return too early.

If you are unsure after getting conflicting advice I'd suggest you ring DEFRA on 0370 241 1710 or email pettravel at apha.gov.uk

Still does not mean that anything will change as I think pets will be very low down on list of priorities. Anyway Oct will come and go and probably nothing will happen as no one will be able to agree on anything!

If there is no deal and the UK is classed as an unlisted country then all the restrictions on pet travel will apply immediately as there will no negotiation to affect it.

Well on that one Keith we'll have to agree to disagree I had to buy a new passport because I went for the second three yearly injection 1 month after the first one expired, this was according to the vet

Must admit, I didn't think you would have needed a new passport.

XV yes?

As well is two words!
How does a sage know everything about everything? or does he? or does he just think he does?
Remember, if you buy something you bought it, not brought it.

Big Roy - I know from personal experience that a new Pet Passport is not needed.

About three years ago we went to France and on the return to the Coquelles PP Office the nice Lady on duty pointed out that the Rabies treatment had run out and we couldn't travel until a Vet had done the treatment for Rabies and Ticks, signed, dated the Pet Passport and would we come back to the Office in 21 days after the treatment.

To cut a long story short - later, after extending our holiday by three weeks, we presented the same Pet Passport to the same Lady and she was satisfied we now complied with the Defra rules and regulations.

I rest my case.

You do not need a new pet passport.
