At the moment, we are set to leave the EU without a deal on 31st October. If you are planning on travelling with your pet after 31st October, you need to start preparing before 30th June
In a no-deal Brexit, the UK is likely to have “unlisted” third country status which means that animals will have to have a blood test no less than 30 days after their rabies vaccination and then wait 3 months following a positive blood test to be able to travel. This means that the process will take at least 4 months. In order to guarantee being able to travel immediately after Brexit, your pet will need a rabies vaccination BEFORE the 30th June and a blood test BEFORE the 31st July.

Parasite prevention for your pet while you are abroad is also really important to protect both them and your family.
