When I lived in England there was a six month quarantine if you brought a dog (and I think cats) to the UK. I now the regulations have changed to allow you to bring pets into the UK without quarantine, but what are the requirements of the new law.
My wife and I have become "them", the people who consider their dogs as children. In the past few years, when on vacation we would put our dogs in a kennel and they were so pathetically happy to see us when we got back, we would feel guilty. If we do take an extended vacation to England and the continent next year, we would like to bring them with us. What about hotels/B&Bs that will allow animals? They are both small dogs, so the complications of travel with them will be at a minimum.
Also, this morning we found out that our Madoodle, Daisy, is diabetic, and we will have to start giving her insulin shots daily, so if we were to be away from home for an extended time, say a month or more, we'd want to make sure she was being taken care of. I assume we will be able to get insulin from vets in England. The one problem with insulin is that it has to be refrigerated, so we wouldn't be able to take a large supply with us.
Anybody out there with a dog who is diabetic? What is their quality of life like?
It's not fair, she's just 4 years old and sweet as the day is long. She's a daddy's girl.
