How to enter Sweden.
If you want to enter Sweden, with your dog, you have to prepare for
that a long time in advance.
Participating dog in shows must have been vaccinated against
distemper in accordance with the following:
Dog under 1 year: vaccinated when no younger than 10 weeks
Dog over 1 year: vaccinated when no younger than one year
old, with the most recent subsequent vaccination having been carried
out within the past 4 years. First-time vaccinations must have been
carried out at least 14 days before the day of competition.
It is recommended that the dog
has been vaccinated against parvo. It is also
recommended that the dog has been vaccinated against kennel cough.
Sweden is a rabies-free country, and it is, therefore, important
that all dogs imported into the country are vaccinated against this
Tapeworm (Echinococcus) can cause serious illness in humans and
dogs. Tapeworm carried by foxes can be spread by dogs to humans via
wild berries or mushrooms.
If tapeworm carried by foxes spreads to Sweden it may threaten
Swedish open-air recreation and the opportunity for people to enjoy
berries and mushrooms picked in the countryside. It is, therefore,
of the utmost importance that dogs are dewormed before they are
brought into Sweden.
vaccination requirements for the import of dogs to Sweden are more
stringent than the vaccination regulations for shows.
