North Yorkshire County Show
On 16th June our vets turned out in force to support the North Yorkshire County Show. As well as providing veterinary cover and emergency response for the day, our vets brought a number of fairground games and free food, enjoyed chatting with members of the public and were present to support a number of our farmers who were entered in various categories.
Despite the inclement weather, it was an absolutely fantastic event, and once again made us proud to serve the community of Northallerton and surrounding.
We hope to see you at a number of other local agricultural shows this summer - hopefully with better weather!
Are you planning on travelling with your pet this summer?
The rules for taking your pet to any EU country will change if the UK leaves the EU with no deal and is treated as an unlisted country.
To allow effective contingency planning in the worst case scenario of the UK not being granted third country status, you’ll need to take the following steps to make sure your pet can travel after 29 March 2019:
You must get your dog, cat or ferret microchipped and then vaccinated against rabies before it can travel. Your pet must have a blood sample taken at least 30 days after the rabies vaccination. You’ll need to talk to your vet about whether you need a rabies vaccination or booster before this test.
Your vet must send the blood sample to an EU-approved blood testing laboratory.
The results of the blood test must show that the vaccination was successful (Your pet must have a rabies antibody level of at least 0.5 IU/ml).
You must wait 3 months from the date the successful blood sample was taken before you travel.
You must take your pet to a Official Veterinarian (OV), no more than 10 days before travel to get a health certificate.
If there’s no deal, pet passports issued in the UK would not be valid for travel to the EU.
You must speak to a pet export qualified vet (Kebir House can provide these) FOUR months before you are planning to travel.

We are accredited!
The RCVS Practice Standards Accreditation Scheme is a voluntary initiative to accredit veterinary practices in the UK. Through setting standards and carrying out regular assessments, the Scheme aims to promote and maintain the highest standards of veterinary care.
In order to obtain our accreditation, we were inspected by PSS accreditors who investigated every area of our practice, including animal care, medical and surgical standards and client service.
The process took nearly two years of hard work and dedication from staff and we are absolutely delighted that all the hard work of our staff resulted in Kebir House Veterinary practice receiving RCVS accreditation in the farm animal, small animal AND equine categories!
