Pet to Canada

Passportforpets - the easy way to ship your pet to Canada


Canada recognises the UK as being a Rabies Controlled Country so pets do not have to be quarantined when entering Canada from the UK (as long as your pet has been in the UK for at least 6 months prior to travelling). You will of course, require the correct documentation and have your pet vaccinated against Rabies. The vaccination needs to be given within 2 years prior to departure.

By the way, if you think your pet might return with you to the UK at some point and you do not wish them to be quarantined, you should enrol your pet for a "Pet Passport". It is not necessary to do this before leaving the UK, as Canada is a member of the PETS scheme and you will be able to take all the necessary steps to allow your animal to return to the UK with you from within Canada. Be aware that it takes approximately 6 months to complete the PETS process in either country.
