1st things first, make sure your dog's passport is up to date and the rabies vaccination is valid! The system has recently changed but I have always found it best to take our regular flea, tick, worming treatments with us to be administered by the French vet immediately prior to the return journey, that way I know my dog won't react to a different product. Make sure you have a mobile contact number on the dog's collar - one which works in the country you are visiting. Most of Europe is much more dog friendly than the UK and I have never had a problem anywhere on my travels with my pooch - they're not very good at pooper scooping though and thought me quite strange for clearing up after my dog!

can concur with Gnome. Take your fleatreatment with you, which ever it is, as they will chargeyou over the odds for their own formula.
We did find that the worming injection for one of our two dogs was quite traumatic as it stung very very seriously. so insist that they give it orally if ytour dog reacts to the injection and this is acceptable procedure

It is good to know that you are willing to take your dog with you. However, I would recommend you to take all dog vaccination documents, medical stuff and basic dog stuff with you. Secondly, I would recommend you to don't lock your dog in your vehicle ever and don't leave it in the dark. You can also read this article https://ourfitpets.com/behavior/should-you-leave-your-dog-in-the-dark/ in this regard.

On the other hand, the same site https://ourfitpets.com/ will also help you a lot if you are any suggestions for your dog's stuff, care and behaviour while travelling abroad. Best of luck for your trip.
