The EU pet passport makes veterinary checks easier and make life easier for travelling pet owners, since there is one single system that applies for all EU countries (with some temporary exceptions for the UK, Ireland, Malta and Sweden).
However, you can also use the pet passport if you are travelling to or from one of the neighbouring countries where the rabies status matches that of the EU.
Pets coming from outside the EU must be accompanied by the relevant health certificate or other documents as outlined in Question 4.

 Pet passport - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
PETS was originally introduced for the benefit of animals entering or returning to the United Kingdom from other European Union countries, since historically the UK had very strong controls to safeguard against rabies including a compulsory 6 month quarantine period on imports of many animals.
The passport is not to be confused with a much smaller folder (sometimes purple coloured), routinely issued by vets, which records the complete vaccination history of the pet.
The pet passport scheme is restricted to a list of countries in which rabies is considered to be under control in pet animals.

Under the new plan, pets must first be fitted with a microchip, be vaccinated against rabies, have a blood test at a recognized laboratory to show the vaccine has worked, and be issued an official PETS certificate.
Any pet not meeting the requirements will be quarantined upon arrival in the U.K. If the microchip does not meet an International Standards Organisation (ISO) specification, you would be advised to bring your own microchip reader.
Before your pet can enter the U.K., a vet must treat it for ticks and tapeworms 24 to 48 hours before your cat or dog is checked in for travel.

 Pet Care Tips: Avoid Lost Pets by Diana L. Guerrero
To ensure you get your pet back one of the most effective habits is to make sure your animal always wears an identification tag (or collar) and a physical marker such as an identification microchip or tattoo.
If you think you pet is exempt from identification rule let me remind you that all it takes is one open door, a fallen screen and an open window for a pet to escape.
In the event of pet theft, they are good ways of finding a pet who has been transplanted a long way off or if they have had all other identification items removed.

The government is set to scrap the UK's tough quarantine rules and replace them with a system of pet passports and microchips.

Pet owners moving into Britain spend an average of $2,400 to board an animal in a quarantine kennel for six months, part of strict laws imposed in 1901 to keep Britain rabies-free.
Instead of locking pets in kennels, which dog and cat lovers say is cruel, the government says microchips could be inserted under the animals' skin so they can be identified by an electronic scanner at seaports and airports.
Initially, the government envisages pet passports applying only to European Union countries and perhaps Australia and New Zealand.

 pets travel scheme uk pet passports info on quarantine and rabies
If you do enter the UK via an unauthorised route, but your pet otherwise meets all of the requirements for the Pet Travel Scheme, you will still have to put your pet into quarantine (which means getting the proper paperwork for that before you leave).
It's a good idea to check that your pet's microchip can be read before you leave, as it could save a lot of heartache and stress on your return journey.
In practice this will mean when you book your tickets your carrier will give you a list of English speaking Vets who can give your pet a quick ‘once-over’ 24 hours before you arrive at the Channel and supply you with the correct proof of examination.
