PET PASSPORTS – Important information

PET PASSPORTS

Important information – please read

As from March 2019, we will no longer be offering a Pet Passport service at the JSPCA. This means we will not be giving rabies booster vaccinations to existing passport holders or issuing new passports.

We have taken this decision due to new UK legislation that requires expensive updating of the Official Veterinarian status required by vets to fulfil this role.

If you require rabies booster vaccination for your pet after March 2019, please make an appointment at a private veterinary practice.

Please also be aware that post Brexit, there may be changes to the current pet passport scheme that may affect your travel arrangements.
