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?

There are several good veterinarians (especially Dr. Haris Custovic of City Vet), although they are limited by the resources and technology available here in Bosnia. Extremely complicated cases can go to Zagreb--about a 4 hours' drive. There is no quarantine and very little rabies. There are a fair amount of street dogs, which can make walking your dog a bit of a challenge (tip: win them over by feeding them a few times before you take your dog out and once they know you, they will let you pass). - Dec 25, 2017
No. The veterinary care is great here. - May 26, 2016
No quarantine necessary. Several English speaking vets who make house visits. A couple of kennels. Be aware, there are lots of stray dogs in Sarajevo. - Aug 19, 2014
