Petition Introduce national system to provide animal health certificates at a fixed cost

As vets are privatised, they charge as much as they like for the AHC. The prices vary hugely from £99-400, which is 3x-14x more expensive than the pre-Brexit European Pet Passport. We want the Government to introduce a national system to provide animal health certificates at a fixed cost.

More details

AHCs are legal documents for pets to travel abroad. They are issued by Official Veterinarians acting on behalf of the Government, and so the Government should provide these certificates through a national system at a fixed cost. Some vets have increased the price annually or during peak season, making travel with pets inaccessible for many pet owners. Vets shouldn’t excessively profit from issuing a legal document at an extortionate price, particularly when EU vets (also private) charge a fraction.
