I went to my vets today and she confirmed the following To keep your passport up to date for travel purposes the rabies jab in France must be done within the one year time frame. If you do not ever intend to travel then the vaccine may last last up to 3 years. She said that in time it MAY become law that the passport for travel, becomes renewal every 3 years, BUT IT HAS NOT HAPPENED YET. If you take a chance then you could encounter a problem re entering/leaving France.
Meowning to youI am a 1 year old female cat, recently rescued from a shelter. My new owners love me because I am cute, cuddly, gorgeous and easy going. Unfortunately their other timid, half feral pet does not like me and has moved upstairs and is frightened. Can someone give me a loving home purrrrrlease? I am house trained, sterilised, vaccinated and have a chip identification. My owners are desperate to keep me from going back to the shelter
Having contacted DEFRA about taking our alpacas from France to the UK I am non the wiser!! When I talk to them on the phone they cannot answer any of my questions. I sent them an e-mail and they sent me back a form with the rules and regulations. They are not written in English that I can understand and keep quoting legilation numbers that mean nothing to me. I don't think they really have a clue otherwise they could simply answer a straight question on the phone? So my question is: Has anyone transported their own alpacas from France to the UK. They are leaving from a farm and going directly to a farm and not mixing with any other animals. What do we need to do regarding paperwork? They have microchips and registrations.
Hello folks. I am trying to find out out how I can transport my goats back to the UK DEFRA have been no help, I wondered if anyone had sheep or goats and may know a transporter who would know what is required for the movement of farm animals back to the UK, they are older and pets. I did find a old discussion mentioning to contact LOC but find nothing on the internet, I live in Morbihan. most grateful of any suggestions or info..Thank you.
Hi All,We have adopted the most beautiful pig off Anglo Info but we now need the use of a transporter to get her from Locunole (29) to Lanvenegen 'ish (56) about a 25 min drive. We need to borrow or pay someone with a small animal trailer/horse box or similar. Willing to pay petrol costs. Can anyone help us pl;ease?Thank you in anticipation.
There is a dog (large white Boxer) which lives close to my home and on two occasions within the last 4 week's has ran off its land and onto the highway chasing me and become very aggressive. Today I had to flee across a nearby field to escape from the animal. My next door neighbor witnessed today's incident and spoke to our Marie on our behalf, the Marie told him there is nothing he could do about the dog and suggested instead that I speak with the local Police. I'm slightly baffled as I thought that the Marie would and could take action against the owners.
I will be moving to Brittany shortly and my dog has a Grain intolerance and is currently being fed with Laughing Dog grain free all in one food however I understand it is not available in France. Does anyone know of a grain free all in one food that is readily available? Any thoughts are most welcome.
Hello, I am a third year student at Warwickshire college on a BSc Equine Therapy and Rehabilitation course. For my final year dissertation I am looking into different techniques of hydrotherapy and in particular the water walker, spa, swimming pool and thalassotherapy. My dissertation is titled: « An international survey of prevalence of the use of sea walkers over 3 other Hydrotherapy techniques on horses ». My aim is to show the different approaches to hydrotherapy between countries. I would greatly appreciate it if you would take the time to reply to my questionnaire. If you haven't used any of these techniques, you can still fill in the questionnaire. This will help me collect data on their importance in the industry.Please find herewith a link to my questionnaire https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSeas6fgmYKbyiwSkOA0wKD8TybqWJiZ-8KyUErTTavQi5tSMQ/viewformThank you for taking the time to consider my request and I look forward to hearing from you in the near future.Morgane

Anyone with a dog, particularly a large, deep chested breed, please be aware of the symptoms of stomach bloat and twisted gut. Our very healthy Korthals Griffon suddenly became very ill last weekend (and I do mean suddenly) - obvious discomfort, unsuccessfully trying to vomit, whining, dribbling from the side of the mouth, amongst other things. (Have since found lots on line about the condition)We rushed him to the vet, she knew straight away what was wrong, x-rayed him to be sure and he was kept at the surgery for major surgery. After 6 days he is still in there but we are finally fairly sure that he will survive. He has to stay in over the weekend but the vet hopes to let him home early next week as he has now started eating again and managed to get up and walk about a bit yesterday.The point of this post is that if your dog had any of these symptoms, get him to a vet immediately. We had never heard of this condition in dogs and if we had waited even for a few hours, our boy wouldn't have survived. Luckily the vet was on the ball and he got immediate treatment, but even so, a section of his gut had gone gangrenous.We're now just looking forward to getting him home again!
Hi EveryoneSome advice pleaseWe will be travelling over in April , the first time with a dog.He will be 6months then.Have got all the passport stuff sorted but as we usually travel Portsmouth -St Malo , has anyone got any tips/advice for a stress free trip. Is it best to leave in car or onboard kennel.??We have him crate trained which is a bonus but are bit anxious given the longish crossing.Have thought of shorter crossing but that leaves a much longer drive so guess swings and roundabouts ....RegardsJohnny H

My friend has recently collected her 8 week old puppy from Belgium. She had his rabies vaccination done at 4 months, and has now been back to the vets to do his ICAD identification so she can travel with him. He is now seven months old. The vet has told her that as he was brought into the country illegally (really?) she will have to prove that he has been in France for six months (even though it is the same vet who saw her at the initial rabies vaccination!) and for her do her identification etc to travel, he will have to return to be RE vaccinated (rabies) before she will validate his passport. This means that he will have two rabies vaccinations in the space of a few months done by a vet that knows this. I find this incredible. My friend, who is French, assures, me that ICAD confirm this, but I have myself brought puppies in from England, and Belgium and never had this issue. Knowing how DEFRA website works, I can only assume that ICAD has the same discrepancies. I would like to know what other people have experienced. I am inclined to think that this vet is being rather difficult as I know I wouldn't have this problem with my own vet clinic.
