France is one the real gems of Europe that has been one of the leading countries to visit and relocate to for as far back as one can remember.
Fance combines medieval villages with Alpine living and also encompasses Mediterranean beaches to offer something for everybody, including their pets.
Since France is located in the EU, it is relatively straight forward, you need to get a pet passport for your furry loved ones which entails the following:
Step 1 – Your dog or cat needs a microchip.
Step 2 – They then need a rabies vaccination. They must be at least 3 months old before they have this. Some rabies vaccines in the UK last for 3 years and others will last for 3 years but need a top up after one year, so you need to know when the vaccine expires.
Step 3 – Your vet issues you with a pet passport and 21 days after the initial vaccination, your pet can travel to Europe and back again.
Step 4 – If your pet is travelling by plane, then the airlines demand that they are checked within 5 days of the flight to ensure that they are fit and healthy.
All European countries accept the pet passport and France is no different. Once you have the pet passport, all you will need is to contact a quality Pet Transport company to complete your move.
