Check-up for my animal

Welcome to the Netherlands to you and your pet! Like you and your children, if you have them, your animal has a right of care. On this site you will find information about the kind of care that is available.

I brought an animal from Ukraine, what should I do now?

After having arrived at your (temporary) accommodation, it is of the foremost importance for your pet or pets to receive medical care as soon as possible. The vet will check your animal and administer the mandatory vaccinations. If needed, the vet will give you a pet passport and will chip the animal. In case your pets is ill or has received injuries on the way, the vet will give your animal the required treatment and medication. Your appointment with the vet and the medication is free of charge.

Take all papers you have from your animal to the vet and the form you have completed here. It is important to take the animal to this appointment, irrespective of the pet having been vaccinated on the way, for instance at the border. The vet needs to include all the information into the passport. Here you will find a Q&A for your questions. To make an appointment for medical care, please fill in the form on this page and we will contact you as soon as possible, to inform you about an available vet.
