Traveling to Sweden with a dog

Hej,
I hope it's okay to write in english. My question is about the vaccination against rabies. Our dog is 9 years old now and we would like to give her no vaccination anymore. The next vaccination should be now but I wanted to ask if it would be possible to send or show (at the border) the result of a test for antibodies against rabies. Of course only if the antibodies are enough. If it would be possible - how old could the test be? We have been to sweden with the dog many times accept last and this year because our daughter was to small for such a long trip but next summer we would like to come up again. I really hope that it would work with an test so that the dog has not to be vaccinated anymore. Hope to hear from you soon! Thank you and best regards, Anja Lierse!

  • Hello Anja!

    There is no exception from the requirement of a valid vaccination against rabies. The antibody test is only valid as long as the vaccination is valid.

  • Thank you for your quick answer! Okay, so there's no chance to save her from the vaccination. She's been vacced every year since she was a puppy. Maybe there's a chance to give her the vaccination only every third year? I read about the adjuvans that dogs need the vaccine every third year. So it should be enough to give it to her in  2022 (last vaccination was 2019), isn't it?

  • Hello!

    As long as the vaccine is valid for three years it is okay to vaccinate every third year. There are different brands of vaccine so you need to look up if she's been vaccinated with a vaccine that is valid for three years.
