  • Any way around the blood titer test required 6months PRIOR to travel for entering UK?

    We are planning to move to the UK in February and of course our two beloved cats (15 years old!) must come with us. I was reading online that I need:

    - current rabies vaccination (done)
    - microchips (done)
    - health certificate (will do 10 days prior to travel)
    - international pet passport

    Regarding the pet passport, I read this: "If your pet is entering the United Kingdom from a country with a low incidence of rabies, in order to avoid quarantine in the United Kingdom, your pet needs to be micro chipped with a 15 digit ISO microchip and undergo a blood titer test six months in advance as well as have an Echinococcus treatment."

    I find it almost impossible to believe that because we didn't have the blood titer test done six months ago (we just found out we were moving last month), our sweet kitties will have to spend six months in quarantine! Isn't there some way around this?

    Thanks in advance for any advice/information you can provide!

    No, you can have someone there get the shots and vet certificates and then bring the pet over in 4 months.

      It's a nightmare and almost impossible to get pets into the UK without going to hell and back first! The UK rules regarding pets entering the country are ridiculous!!! That is why we are moving back home to the good ole US of A! Good luck!
