You need to get a pet passport to travel to Spain and to get a passport for Fido you need to follow the 4 steps below:
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.
