An animal health certificate (AHC) can only be issued by an Official Veterinarian (OV). An appointment for this can be arranged by contacting us but please do this as soon as you book your journey. We cannot guarantee we will be able to provide an AHC at the last minute as we may not have the spare appointment time.
When you apply for an animal health certificate, you will need to take your pet, along with vaccination and other medical records, to the issuing vet.
An Animal Health Certificate normally includes details of:
- Rabies vaccination details (your animal will need to have been vaccinated at least three weeks prior to the AHC appointment and have had a UK Rabies vaccine within the past three years)
- Rabies blood test (as required)
- Canine tapeworm treatment (as required)
- Intended country of entry (The AHC has to be issued in the language of the country in which you are entering the EU)
