EU rules for traveling with dogs and cats from Sweden

From 1 May 2013, there have been new rules if you are going travel with animals from Sweden. The owner can no longer carry out and document the tapeworm treatment himself on the dog.

ID-chip, passport and documented treatment

Your dog must be ID-marked, have its own passport and documented treatment against the fox's dwarf tapeworm (Echinococcus multilocularis) when you are going back to Norway after a trip to Sweden. The treatment must consist of the preparation Praziquantel, e.g. Drontal, Droncit, Milbemax.

2 methods of entry and exit 

This treatment must be done by a veterinarian with a stamp in the passport 24 -120 hours (5 days) before entry to Norway. As an alternative to treatment 24 – 120 hours before entry, dogs can undergo a treatment plan which means that they are treated against tapeworms at least twice with a maximum interval of 28 days before the first entry to Norway. Thereafter, they are treated at least every 28 days. If you make use of this, you and your dog can travel freely between Norway and Sweden. The treatments can be carried out by a veterinarian in Norway or abroad. This option may be appropriate for those who travel frequently. If you are going to bring a cat to Sweden, the cat must have its own passport and be ID marked.

Travel to Denmark

Remember that dogs and cats must have a rabies vaccine at least 21 days before departure to Denmark and other European countries (exception: Sweden).
