ok thanks - that would certainly save them having more rabies shots.
All our have been microchipped.

Not to mention the inherent health dangers associated with rabies shots.

Really the pet travel agency makes sure all the paperwork is correct and everything done at the same time.
What kind of crate do you use?
Another thing of concern is that all our pets have 3 yr rabies - wondering if they can be given it again as it has to be done within a year of travel if I am correct.
Did your cat have to have any other injections besides the rabies and the test they do for intestinal worms?
Yes correct but the paperwork is easy if you read the defra web-site and give them a call.
The crate will depend on the airline VA had specific brands that had to be used my kitty had a larger size then required so he had plenty of space to move around, I go it at Petsmart.
As long as the rabies is valid you are fine and the micro-chips were inserted before the rabies injection this is a must have and you have to have documentation to back this up!
No other injections are required for cats, BUT you will have to take kittys to the vet the airline is going to want a seperate form filled out that the cats are fit to fly this has to be done within 10 days of departure, if you go over the 10days time frame then you will have to take them back again for another physical.....if they had worms they would not pass the vet/airline physcial until they had been killed off the worms lol not the kittys

Correct

I will add at the animal reception center at heathrow it was crazy with folk not having the right documents even the pet carriers had screwed up for some folk.......FYI in some states CA included you will need to take vets documents and proof of vaccinations to the USDA office to get clearance to fly.

Yes same in Texas.....I have done this once already and handled all the shipping details myself. My 4.5 lb Chihuahua travelled from NYC to Belfast without any problems on Continental.

Thanks all - getting some really good info. from everyone and I feel loads better and less concerned than before regarding the animals.
Now, if we can get my husband squared away - that is another story!
My sister had an idea - microchip him and send him with the animals- LOL

My sister and I had a good laugh when she said about it - good thing my hubby has a good sense of humour.

Could someone tell me about cattle class? ---Just joking

Do you need to have 18k pounds in the bank before you can bring in your foreign born (Not in the EU) pet ??

Yes. Yes you do. This amount is to cover all the treats and toys you will feel compelled to buy to assuage the guilt that comes from putting said pet on a plane.

Hi all, I am really confused and stressed right now!

Has anyone recently flown their dog from Canada to London?

We are flying my dog from Halifax, Canada to UK in June. He is up to date with rabies and been microchipped.
Can my vet complete the 3rd Country certificate, validate it and de-worm the dog 5 days prior to travel?
Or do I have to go to another authority to validate the certificate 10 days prior to travel and then have the vet de-worm the dog?

I have called Defra but am now even more confused
I thought my vet could do it all. Can anyone clarify?
