Here is a breakdown of how to take your pet to France.
As of January 1st 2021 there have been some changes to the requirement for European pet travel, read more about these here.
Step 1: Make sure your pet is microchipped with an ISO compliant microchip.
Step 2: Your pet will need a rabies vaccination after the microchip is implanted.
