The Worming is a mandatory requirement of ours for all dogs being transported as a means of protecting all the animals on the transport.
The Clinical Examination is a mandatory requirement of ours so that we have official confirmation that the animal is fit for travel.
And ……. consider a situation where your animal is taken ill in Northern France, or one of the drivers is ill, or the van has a mechanical issue and it is quicker to have it repatriated to the UK. In any of the above your animal would need to be able to pass through pet passport in France, and so the pet passport has to be completed as above. The alternative would be to leave your animal in a kennel in France, which would be a shame and is easily avoided by ensuring the pet passport is completed correctly.
