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?

We did not have to quarantine our pets upon entry or even show any paperwork for them--they were brought in by car. - Jan 15, 2017
Yes, there are plenty of qualified vets and good kennel services available. There is Pallini Animal Kennels (hwww.pallinikennels.gr) and Puppies Park (puppiespark.gr). - Dec 20, 2016
A pet must have a current Health Certificate stating that it has been examined and shows no clinical signs or symptoms of infectious and contagious diseases; it has been vaccinated against rabies; and it has been treated against echinococcosis within thirty days prior to date of travel. This certificate is valid for 10 days from the date of loading. The rabies vaccination should be given not less than 15 days and not more than one year from the date of arrival in Greece. Birds must have a certificate stating that they are free from psittacosis. - Jul 14, 2012
