Vets are warning that the rabies threat to the UK has increased following changes to quarantine rules.
Under the changes, animals from the EU and approved non-EU countries like the US and Australia no longer need a blood test, before they can enter the UK.
The government says the risk of rabies coming to the UK is very low.
