Hi
We brought our Springer Spaniel over from the UK.. First of all visit your vets they can do everything for you, ours did. Yes they do need their rabies shot and a blood test to confirm immunity before they travel. They will also definately have to have microchips inserted under their skin. Our vet sorted our dog passport and innoculations for us. Also if coming over here before Sept you will need a good supply of Advantix and worming treatment (although they do have it in Spain). This is for sandflies and mosquitos x hope this helps

our little friend came over in April, chipped as he was a rescue dog, pet passport issued - understand in the UK not all vets are DEFRA licenced to issue !

loaded him onto prepared area on back seat of car, thru the chunnel, had 3 overnite stops at hostelry's who acceped pets, as good as gold, no problems, no police stops in 1500 miles.

have now found a local vet's, one of the practice was trained in Cambridge Uni and enjoys showing off his English to us and dog.

Yes, you are quite right. Our vet doesn't always do it personally. If you buy the worming kit from him he will usually stamp the passport.

Whether that is strictly within the rules I don't know.
