Christine Middlemiss, UK Chief Veterinary Officer, told the Daily Telegraph that owners should go to the vets as soon as possible to get their pet's documents in order if they want to travel to the European Union after Brexit day at the end of next March.
Theresa May is expected to brief her cabinet today on proposals to avoid a hard border in Ireland through a UK-wide customs arrangement that would eliminate most checks on goods. To ease Conservative fears that the United Kingdom could effectively stay in the EU customs union indefinitely, preventing trade deals with other countries, Downing Street is pushing for a review mechanism that would allow the United Kingdom to exit the arrangement. The agreement would "not be done at any cost", her official spokesman said.
In a tweet on Monday Mr Coveney said: "The Irish position remains consistent and very clear that a "time-limited backstop" or a backstop that could be ended by United Kingdom unilaterally would never be agreed to by Ireland or EU".
The prime minister told cabinet that they would have another meeting before any agreement was settled, with No 10 insiders concerned a deal should be agreed by the end of this month if it is to be voted on before the United Kingdom leaves the EU.
The PM has secured "private concessions" from Brussels that the whole of the United Kingdom will be allowed to remain in a customs union with the EU after Brexit occurs in March, according to The Sunday Times' political editor Tim Shipman.
Mr Varadkar's remarks come as several European Union sources cast doubt on whether a breakthrough can be reached this week on the Irish backstop in the Brexit negotiations.
Speaking in the Irish parliament on Tuesday, Mr Varadkar repeated his red lines.
Dublin has insisted it would not accept any unilateral United Kingdom ability to end a Brexit backstop agreement on the Irish border.
"There can be no expiry date and there can be no unilateral exit clause, and if it were to be either of those things, the backstop would not be worth the paper it was written on", he said. The clock is still ticking and we will continue the work.
But the EU's chief negotiator has lowered expectations of a breakthrough by telling Belgian TV: "I'm not in a position to tell you that we're are close to a deal because there is a still a real point of divergence".
The Sunday Times report said preparations for a final Brexit deal were "far more advanced than previously disclosed" and that May's agreement would satisfy both remain-voting Tories and the hardline Eurosceptics within her party.
He tweeted: "Such an outcome will have serious consequences for economy of Irish Republic".
"Looks like we're heading for no deal", he wrote on Twitter, adding: "Can't understand why Irish government seems so intent on this course".
He told the BBC: "I can't see it because I think it would be the worst of all worlds".
