Certain requirements concerning animal health are applied in the movements of pet animals between EU-countries. These requirements are adhered to according to the currently valid so called pet regulation (Regulation (EC) no. 576/2013 of the European Parliament and of the Council).
The objective of non-commercial movement of pet animals should not be selling the animal or the exchange of ownership. Pet animal stands for an animal that is accompanied by its owner or an authorised person during movement. The owner or the authorised person is responsible for the pet animal during movement. The movement of the animal must happen within five days of the same journey that was done by the owner.
