Hello Due to family commitments I will need to spend more time in the uk for example one week in four, so I am looking for a reliable settled family or individual who wold like to help me with my pet Mr Rabbit. We are in Alvor he does have his own house 50x40x100cm and he sleeps indoors at night. He can stay at home and just have a visit for food and water each day or he can come to stay with you, depending on your needs. You may see this as a job to be paid for or maybe Mr Rabbit could be an introduction to pets for your family, I am open to any suggestions.Please reply here Debi x
I have a kitten about 5 weeks old male tabby who was seen being thrown from a big silver BMW on the Autodromo road at about 80km per hour by a couple. He was then taken care of by the person who witnessed this and 3 days later was unfortunately present in a house fire, which thanks to the neighbours who managed to get the kitten and the person out of the house by breaking a window. He is now with me and desperately needs a loving home, he is so friendly and loves to play and can't stop purring. Please can you help this little fellow who has been through so much? call on 917758404 or mail me
More dogs abandoned at the Sao Bras roundabout- close to the new swimming-pool! Outrageous!! Please, if you see this happening, jot down the car's registration number and give it to the GNR! A few new strays have recently turned up at Intermarché. One, in particular, is extremely friendly - white and stocky, often in the company of two females....... always respond to affection- even if you have no food for them!
Hi there,I am desperately looking to move to the Algarve and set up or buy my own cattery. If you are a cat owner please can you email me to let me if you think there is a need for one in the Algarve or if you have any other thoughts. I was only going to do Cats as I am an experienced owner and volunteer for the RSPCA cattery here in the UK. I currently run a cat sitting business. Does anyone know a good English speaking vet that I could work with?Or perhaps you are selling a perfect property that I could convert into a cattery? Either way I would be most grateful for any of your comments or ideas. My email address is email@example.com thanksDebbie
New rules will make it easier and cheaper to take pets to theUnited KingdomDog and cat owners will find it cheaper and easier to travel to the UK with their pets when new rules are introduced at the start of next year.The AngloINFO Information pages have been updated to reflect the changes which will come into effect in 2012 and provide additional links for further information:http://algarve.angloinfo.com/countries/portugal/pettravel.asp#3The UK will harmonise its pet movement rules with the rest of the European Union from 1 January 2012, bringing the UK's Pet Travel Scheme into line with the most recent science.The UK will maintain its high level of protection against animal diseases after the changes, which have the potential to save pet owners around £7 million in fees.Forcing pets to spend six months in quarantine, a practice dating from the 1800s, is no longer necessary because of vastly improved rabies vaccines and treatments.All pets will still need to be vaccinated against rabies. Pets from the EU will no longer need a blood test and will only have to wait 21 days before they travel.The changes will ensure the risk of rabies coming to the UK remains extremely low. It's estimated that the new rules mean there would be one case of rabies in a pet in the UK once every 211 years, with the possibility of a person dying from rabies obtained from a pet once in every 21,000 years.Environment Secretary, Caroline Spelman, said:"The UK's quarantine system was designed to combat the threat of rabies in the 19th century and has now been left far behind by scientific advances. What is needed is a simpler, evidence-based system for protecting the UK from rabies which recognises the actual risk to pets and pet owners. The EU's pet movement scheme has been working very well for nearly a decade, and it makes sense for us to have similar rules."Chief Medical Officer, Professor Dame Sally Davies, said:"Rabies is a very serious human disease and the rabies-free status of the UK must be protected. The EU pet travel rules have been successful in preventing any cases of rabies occurring in legally moved pets since the scheme started, so harmonising the UK's rules with those of the EU will make it easier for those who wish to travel with their pets."The UK will continue to protect the public against the risk of serious exotic tapeworm infections and is pressing to retain tapeworm controls for pets entering the UK. The government has been discussing with the European Commission the most appropriate form of tapeworm controls for dogs, to ensure the UK continues to be protected from Echinococcus multilocularis.The Commission has recently indicated that its proposals, expected shortly, would enable the UK and other tapeworm-free countries to retain tapeworm controls, with a requirement that animals be treated between one and five days before returning to the UK.Tick treatment for pet animals returning to the UK will no longer be required. All pet owners travelling abroad with their animals should discuss with their vets the use of treatments, including those designed to control ticks as part of good animal health practice.Detailed information on what pet owners and vets need to do before bringing a pet to the UK can be found athttp://www.defra.gov.uk/wildlife-pets/pets/travel or obtained from the UK helpline +44 (0)870 241 1710.Entry rules for pets entering the UK from the EU:What has to be doneNowFrom 1 January 2012MicrochipYesYesRabies vaccinationYesYesDocumentation (pet passport or third country certificate)YesYesBlood test (dogs and cats)YesNoPre-entry waiting periodYesYesLength of waiting period before entry to the UK6 months from date sample taken for blood test21 days after vaccination against rabiesTick treatmentYes (24-48 hours before embarkation)NoTapeworm treatmentYes (as for ticks)Under consideration at European level
