For the attention of clients holding EU pet passports!

Following Brexit, UK vets no longer have authorisation to complete EU passports. Recording of a rabies vaccination in the passport must be done by a vet in the EU.

Therefore if a rabies booster vaccination is due whilst the pet is in the UK we will be unable to record this in the EU passport. Consequently if the pet then needs to travel to the EU it will require an Animal Health Certificate.

Please visit GOV.UK for updated information on pet travel now we have left the EU.

About us

Springwell Veterinary Surgery is family owned and does not subscribe to  the “corporate” model of doing business. We are an RCVS accredited practice.

“I am proud of what we have achieved since I started in Tring on 23rd of May 1988, and consider that we treat animals with the love and respect with which I would most like my pets to be treated.”
