Have your pet treated against tapeworms
Tapeworm rules apply to pet dogs only. Not less than 24 hours and not more than 120 hours (1 to 5 days) before its scheduled arrival time in the UK under the Pet Travel Scheme, your dog must be treated against tapeworm and the treatment recorded in the EU pet passport or the third country official veterinary certificate.
No treatment is required for dogs entering the UK directly from Finland, Ireland, Malta or Norway.
Your dog must be treated against the tapeworm Echinococcus multilocularis using an approved/licensed veterinary medicine whose active ingredient is Praziquantel, or an equivalent product. You should check with your vet to ensure the correct treatment is used.
A qualified vet must carry out and record the treatment in your pet’s passport or third country certificate. You must not administer the treatment yourself. The treatment must be carried out every time your pet enters the UK.
Before leaving the veterinary practice you are advised to check that the following details have been recorded accurately in the EU pet passport or the third country official veterinary certificate:
If any of the above details are not clearly and precisely recorded, it would be a deemed a document failure and the carrier would be correct to refuse entry of the pet into the UK.
