Exporting Pets Living in the United Kingdom
All dogs, cats and ferrets leaving the UK must be microchipped, vaccinated for rabies (in that order) and wait 21 days before leaving the country. It’s also advisable to ask your veterinarian for an EU Pet Passport if you intend to come back to the UK.
If you should be planning to take your pet on a holiday to a country with a top incidence of rabies, your veterinarian should administer a Blood Titer Test before you leave the country if you wish to go back to the EU. You don’t have to attend 90 days before traveling if your pet comes with an EU pet passport and its vaccination and blood test were done in the EU and recorded in your pet passport.
You do not have to hold back 3 months if your pet posseses an EU pet passport and its vaccination and blood test were done in the EU and recorded in your pet passport.

General Information About Exporting Pets
Once you request a pet export quotation we quote for many costs to transport your pet by air to the named destination airport. If you are delivering your pet to our premises near Heathrow it must arrive no less than five hours ahead of the flight. Collections from you (if required) is going to be by arrangement, usually on your day before departure.
There will however be additional charges payable at the airport of destination to cover costs for such items as airline import handling, customs clearance and veterinary charges. As these fees are payable in country of destination, and we’re struggling to pay them on your own behalf, so these charges are not within the quote (but we shall advise you of this).
Prices are influenced by the size/weight of the animal(s) to be exported, any additional services (such as UK transportation, kenneling, and veterinary certification), flight time and the destination. In case of dogs, the box size provided is on the basis of the measurements directed at us. Should these measurements be incorrect we accept no responsibility for any delay or extra costs involved as a result.
Animals must be shipped in containers built to IATA specifications which are the proper size for them i.e. they must be big enough for your pet to stand up without touching the the top of box, take a nap comfortably and be able to turn round within the box. There should also be a fixed water container within the container with a method of filling it from the outside (funnel).
In case you desire to utilise our services we will have to have written confirmation with payment as soon as possible and at the very least 28 days beforehand. We may also demand a contact Name, Address and Telephone Number in the united states of destination (the airline will have to ring beforehand to verify acceptance).
You may well be able to take your pet as excess baggage, which would mean booking direct with passenger reservations. This might be a cheaper option (please note that some airlines cannot take livestock and that there could be restrictions such as for example standby status with regards to the airline and the route). However should the animal(s) be an especially large shipment (in Airline terms) or coping with the animal(s) at once since the move be particularly difficult then we can provide the cargo option as well as other services including collection, kenneling and Export Health Certification.
With informative data on the measurements of the animal(s) we are able to build transit kennels to fit. Kennels can be either found from us or delivered to any U.K. Airport to coincide along with your register time or be sent to your home.
Long lasting mode of travel, pets should go into the cargo hold of the aircraft. That is heated and pressurised to the exact same extent while the passenger cabin. The animals are loaded to the hold approximately 30 minutes before departure (however the airline requires that they are delivered for them 4 hours before the flight) and are unloaded at the other end usually within 30 minutes of the plane landing. After the documents can be found the animals can be cleared through customs. The handling/vet fees are then payable to the Import Shed Operator where point the animals may be collected and taken home.
