    How many know the rules for traveling with an animal? Here then is that the International Organization for Animal Protection (Oipa) has created a summary infographic to be able to travel with them without problems. In short, a useful guide to leave safely and legally with our inseparable friends. In general, the first rule is: never improvise. What changes if you travel in Italy or abroad? In Italy it is suggested to bring with you the animal’s health book and, for the dog, the certificate of registration in the canine registry.

    Abroad a “Pet-passport” is required which identifies the dog, cat or ferret through the microchip and certifies the rabies vaccination. We remind you that puppies can be vaccinated against rabies from three months on and can leave after 21 days from the first vaccination. Pay attention to the rules of non-EU countries: it is necessary to inquire well in advance at the Consulate of destination and the public veterinary service.

    The Oipa, which this year in its anti-abandonment campaign has given a voice to “aware adopters”, wishes all pet owners a happy holiday, recalling art. 727 of the Criminal Code which states: “Anyone who abandons pets or those who have acquired habits of captivity is punished with arrest for up to one year or with a fine ranging from one thousand euros to 10 thousand euros. The same penalty is subject to anyone who keeps animals in conditions incompatible with their nature and producing serious suffering “.
