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?

Vets locally are not bad, but not great. Same with kennel services, which are mostly offered by the same vets.

I'm not aware that animals need quarantine, but I got my dog locally after arriving (a rescue). You should be aware that people don't treat their dogs particularly well here. Also, dogs sometimes roam the streets downtown either solo or in groups of 3-4. Animal control can be called and will (try to) catch them, but others appear in a few weeks at most. - Mar 27, 2017
