I’m guessing with not many travelling with pets to Spain or France if anyone has taken advantage of purchasing a euro passport for their dogs.
I did make an enquiry last July with a Spanish vet we’ve used a few times while on holiday.
They quoted from memory €40 ish.
It’s not the price, it’s how the passport is viewed by officials here and abroad.
I wouldn’t like to take Penny and find problems returning.
We use Eurotunnel.

I’m not a pet owner but you might find this, from the BBC website six days ago, useful.

Brexit: How has pet travel to EU countries been affected?

Thank you Fifo

Made interesting reading and goes to show it’s mega expensive compared to pre brexit
I’ve not come across anyone whom has taken out a EU passport.

Hi, we obtained an eu pet passport in Germany last September after spending 165 pounds going out from the Uk with a AHC . The eu pet passport was very easy to get from a normal vet and in Germany it cost me 45 euros which included another rabies vaccination that you must have done in the eu every time it is due and not in the uk.A friend got his in spain exactly the same processes and cost.we was in the vets a total of 35 minutes. No problems returning to the Uk.

Thank you Tringy.
Great to know you had no problems returning to Uk.
Have you or your friend returned to the EU yet, if so any problems outbound.

I read that the spanish vets needed something to do with tax recipes etc what did you have to supply to the vet to get the dog passport, I do have an address in spain to put on the passport but I'm not registered in spain and my spanish vet has my mobile No

In Germany we was registered with the vet already because we used them for the normal return process before Brexit, we did not have to supply anything other then the normal the dog has to have but as I said the dog had to be re vaccinated for rabies. The same process took place in Spain only that it took two visits, typically Spain , the vet was in Malaga just picked at random. The German rabies vaccination lasts for 3 years and the Spanish one is for 2 years, why? We don’t know , but once you have the passport you can get the vaccination re done any where in the eu when needed, but not in the Uk, so like us going abroad twice no it’s no problem. We even think it might be cost affective to get it done on a day trip to France alongside some shopping ect.
