I have a question which I did not discover until today.
Last year, we took our dog to Belgium through Calais with an AHC. Everything was very smooth.
We also have an apartment in Belgium so we have a residence there and we got our dog an EU passport from Belgium to be able to travel easily.
Our Belgian vet put the details of our dog's rabies shot that was administered in the UK with the relevant dates.
The problem is that he put the Date of Reading of the transponder (microchip) and not the Date of Application. I've checked the Petlog website, but I cannot see a date of application, only his date of birth.
The Eurotunnel website states that the date of microchip application or reading must be after the date of the rabies shot.
But what if the passport needed to be replaced in case this date of implantation was unknown and his rabies vaccines were up to date? How can the date of reading be after the date of his vaccine?
I may be reading too much into it but I've read people having problems over this at the border.
Did any of you had any experience with this? I'd appreciate any advice.
