Are qualified veterinarians and/or good kennel services available? Do animals need to be quarantined upon entry to the country? Are there other considerations regarding pets that are particular to this country?

Yes. - Aug 2, 2016
No issues with pets. No quarantines, decent vet care. - Aug 2, 2015
No and yes; good vet care is available. The kennel varies in quality of care, but there are housekeepers and babysitters who are happy to also be dog sitters and walkers. - Aug 12, 2014
Unsure. The biggest concern pet owners seem to have is getting the pets shipped in and out with connecting flights out of Tirana. Airline policies, coupled with State Department restrictions on what airlines you can use, seem to be an enormous headache for pet owners here. - May 18, 2013
I don't know about this one, but I've heard both good and bad stories about people getting their pet into the country. - Dec 27, 2012
