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 vets that make house calls. No quarantine. Your pet will need a stamped APHIS certificate and microchip to get through Paris. Schedule your titer test well in advance of departing post. It will need to be air-mailed to Paris. - Oct 29, 2017
There are vets and they will do home visits, again pay in cash. A friend watching your pet while you are away is a better idea than a kennel (which I never heard of there). There is no quarantine but your pet will freak out when it sees a camel for the first time (and every time!) - Aug 2, 2015
