We have an Italian dog who is fully vaccinated, microchipped and got his pet passport. Normally, when we go to the Uk we leave him in kennels, but this autumn we intend to go to the UK for some time and are taking him with us. Can anyone help me understand what I have to do to take him across the channel? I have read on the DEFRA site that animals have to be wormed and de ticked before travelling. I regularly put Frontline combo on my dog, so does he need another treatment before travelling? Same for worm tablet? Do I provide the tablets, frontline, or does the vet have to? How long do you have between the treatment and entering the UK? Do you do it with your vet here in Italy, or do you go to a vet at Calais? And finally, do you have to do the same thing all over again to come back??? Sorry to have so many questions, but there must be someone out there who has done this and can enlighten me!
