Pet Travel Question: Moving a Chihuahua to France

Name: Frederic
Number of Pets: 2

Pet Breed: Chihuahua
From: Shanghai, China
To: Lyon, France

Dear Sir/Madam,

I need to get back to my own country (France) ASAP. But, I have a small Chihuahua (three and a half months) who needs to travel with us. Unfortunately, we need a successful blood test (verifying that the vaccine has given sufficient protection against rabies) to import our dog in France. This blood test must be done four months after the anti-rabies vaccine.

We cannot wait four months to go back to France and we don't want to leave our dog in China. Would you please let us know if you could help us with this very difficult and sensitive situation?

Thank you so much!


Hi Fred,

Thanks for your question! Here are the pet import requirements for France. It sounds like you're referring to a titer test, but that actually won't be necessary for you. Please take some time to review these rules and then contact us if you have more questions or if you'd like to find out more about the door-to-door services we offer. Good luck, and we hope to hear from you soon!
