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 is an American vet who has his own clinic with local staff. He is great. There are kennels and groomers around but the quality of care is inconsistent and not the greatest although inexpensive. - Aug 7, 2017
No quarantine. There is a decent English-Speaking Chinese vet here and also a Canadian vet who is very good. There is a fancy pet hotel here that is good. People here have pets, but they are still not very good at caring for their pets. It is rare for local people to spay and neuter or vaccine their own pets. - May 18, 2016
No, but there is the usual hassle and paperwork to go through. - Aug 2, 2013
