We have owned our house near Barbezieux for many years and have always travelled between UK and Charente 10 to 12 times a year with our Spaniel. Entry into France never an issue and return to UK with British issued pet passport no issue either with the appropriate treatment before UK arrival. Our French vet taking the view that because of our very frequent travel the charges were heavily discounted.Due to Covid issues we have not visited since December 2020 but of course now matters are very different. I believe we need a UK issued Animal Health Certificate for entry into France, this certificate being a single trip only document  and costing between £140 and £180 , so 12 trips qa year and this starts to get a little expensive.For re entry into UK our existing UK issued pet passport with appropriate pre arrival treatment still valid.Has anyone else been faced with this situation ? I expect so, but have you managed to navigate around it at all ?I do hear that to have pet passport re-issued as a French document should do it but our vet advises that as our dog has a UK implant this is a problem ?I hope someone can assist.ThanksKevin

I am looking for either a Faverolle or Brahma chicken to join my girls. Does anyone have a young chicken for sale, or knows of someone who might, I’d love to know. All the markets just seem to sell silkies, Marans, Sussex etc. I live in the Gemozac area. Many thanks.

Please discuss, adivise or dissuade with considered arguments the pros and cons of keeping pygmy goats.Any legal requirements info for here in France appreciated. We already have 3 horses which are fully registered but we have a small paddock with a large oak tree (acorns). We have kept sheep and pigs in the past so we are aware of shelter and fresh water etc.T.I.A.

I would really appreciate any info regarding setting up a cattery business. I know I would have to be licensed but where would I go to get that. I also understand I need to get some kind of qualification in animal husbandry, but again where do I start that process. I also think I will need planning permission as I want to build a 10 bay cattery. Any helpful advise would be greatly appreciated please. Many thanks. Lisa

I am looking for a way to socialise my small 18 month old dog , especially with other dogs. I don’t particularly mean obedience classes but perhaps a dog walking group .  It needs to be in the Couhe , Civray, Lezay area.

Begby is looking for a new Mum! His owner is in long term care after a terrible road accident and can no longer look after him. He’s 8 years old, intelligent, eager to please and clean in the house. He’s great with people, even strangers, he’s not a barker, and he’s good with other dogs. He’s a bit over enthusiastic with cats, but I’m sure with a dog as clever as he is, that could be dealt with. All his jabs are up to date, and he has a pet passport. He’s a member of the Gournay Education Canine group and takes part in weekly obedience and agility classes.
