Travelling with your pet


Is your pet eligible?

Your pet MUST have a Microchip and a valid in-date Rabies Vaccination – at least 21 days BEFORE you travel: see our FAQ section for more details.

  • Please send me a message through the webpage contact form and I will reply with our welcome email that contains the link to our Client Information Form for you to complete.



Send your information

Complete our Client Information Form AND you will need to ask your regular vet to send your pet’s vet clinical notes directly to me by email for review. 

**Please send me a message once you have completed the Client Info Form AND you have requested that your vet send the Rabies vaccination clinical history notes to our email**


Confirm and pay for your order

Once I have reviewed your information and confirmed all of the details, I will:

  • Contact you to confirm your AHC request.
  • Have you make payment (BACS transfer).
  • Arrange a suitable date and 30-minute collection window:
    • Have you bring your pet(s) to collect your AHC from my home here in Paisley, Renfrewshire PA2 postcode.


I will prepare your AHC

Following confirmation and payment, I will complete the AHC, in preparation for it being issued.


Meet, Scan, Issue & Travel

During the appointment to issue the AHC – I will scan your pet’s microchip, take you through the AHC and have you as the lead traveller, complete the owner’s declaration before handing over the certificate and wishing you a safe journey. 

The appointment to issue the AHC takes around 15-20 minutes to complete. 

  • You will then have up to 10 days to enter the EU (The day of issue is counted as day 1 of the 10 days). 
  • Once you’ve entered the EU, your pet will be permitted to travel within the EU for a maximum period of up to 16 weeks on the AHC. 
  • DOGS – must visit a Vet in the EU before returning to the UK to have a Tapeworm treatment administered and recorded in the AHC (further details below). 


The general rule is ALL dogs must visit a Vet in the EU before returning to the UK to have a tapeworm treatment administered and recorded by the EU Vet in the appropriate section of the AHC to allow them to re-enter the UK.

This must happen within 120 hours BEFORE returning to the UK but no sooner than 24 hours BEFORE re-entering the UK.

The countries who require you to administer the Tapeworm treatment BEFORE entering from the UK are Northern Ireland, Republic of Ireland, Norway, Finland & Malta. The same rule applies with regards to the timings shown above. If you are returning directly from any of these 5 countries into the UK you do NOT need to treat for Tapeworm again. 

The Tapeworm treatment is recorded by a Vet here in the UK within the AHC (or in the case of pet dogs with valid EU Pet Passports, a UK Vet CAN input the worming details into the passport without invalidating it).

Behind the scenes of Pawsome Pet Travel


Official Vet’s Dug

Originally from Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada – I travelled back to the UK with my dad after he finished his Internship at the University there. Glasgow has been my home for the past 12 years and my most favourite past-time is either yapping at everyone on the beach or sneaking up on to the sofa to snuggle with folk.


Official Veterinarian

Originally from the West Coast, over the past 18 years I’ve split my time between working with the Scottish SPCA and in General Practice, a year spent working in Saskatoon, Canada, teaching the next generation of Vets at the University of Glasgow Vet School & now work during the week as a locum vet in various vet practices on the West Coast. 

I have been involved in Official Vet work since Brexit, helping companies to export their products to the EU, and pet owners heading off on their travels with their furry family in tow. Most weekends I can be found with my own furry kid on one of Scotland’s beaches & perhaps out horse riding.

Official Vet’s Grand-Dug

Sadly, we lost wee Cheech at the end of 2022, but he’ll remain a honorary team member 😉 Originally from the Southside of Glasgow – I was rehomed by my dad after my previous owner sadly couldn’t take care of me any longer. I enjoyed my retirement to the grand wee age of almost 20 years old. Much of my time was spent sleeping and eating, sleeping more and eating yet again.
