If you are bringing a pet it’s best to check their pet passport is all up to date and don’t forget you have to book them onto the ferry or euro tunnel!  It’s really easy  and generally hassle free but when you are on the continent you need to make sure you take them to a vet to have them wormed before coming back to the UK!  You don’t want Fido being left behind!
