New regulations make it easier to take pets to UK, starting on January 1, 2012

UK Britain's Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) announced recently that the rules for taking cats, dogs or ferrets into the UK change as from January 1 next year. You can see the new rules by clicking on the image, and get the whole picture at the appropriate DEFRA page. One of the first rules is to get your pet microchipped, which is obligatory (and much too expensive) in Spain for all three species. But the main change is the time the animal can travel after it has had its rabies vaccination - from six months at present, to 21 days on January 1st.
