Owners travelling to the EU should book a vet appointment well in advance to ensure sufficient time to complete 'more cumbersome' paperwork .

Under post-Brexit rules, pet owners must obtain an Animal Health Certificate (AHC) from a vet trained to issue them no more than ten days before travel from Great Britain to the European Union. Unlike the older and much simpler pet passports, AHCs are 9-12 pages long, which translates into a much more complex, time consuming and costly paperwork process.
