The UK is fortunately free of terrestrial rabies, however specific rules apply for pet travel overseas, and will vary depending on the country. However, for dogs, cats and ferrets vaccination against rabies with an approved vaccine is one requirement common to all international pet travel. For further information on essential requirements for taking pets overseas, please visit the DEFRA web pages on this topic.
