The EU pet travel passports are available at Happy Paws.

Please Note:

For most countries dogs and cats have to be vaccinated against Rabies at least 21 days before departure. It is also often necessary to have a Vet  de-worm and de-flee 2 to 4 days in advance. Animals have to be micro-chipped before the rabies vaccination. All required before a health certificate can be issued.

Microchip your cat!

Cat Microchipping miniThe Veterinary Regulation of Ministry For The Environment just made an announcement that from today we can register cat microchips in the Maltese data base. It means that if your cat will be lost you have a big chance to find it! All you have to do is to come and microchip your cat. We will only charge for the implementation. The registration will be free of charge. You can come without a special appointment to implement the microchip in your cat at the Happy Paws Clinic. The microchip will be registered the same day as the implementation. Please do it asap for the good of your cat!



Please welcome Allison Smith and Amy Ryan. They are in their last year of University College Dublin, Ireland. 
We are very grateful for their help during an internship at Happy Paws Animal Clinic. Wishing them all the best in their veterinary carrier!
