Kolkata - Post Report Question and Answers

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?

Don’t bring dogs here. Cats are better since the housing situation is the way it is. There are street dogs everywhere outside of the apartment complexes so you really can’t walk them. Some folks have smaller breed dogs, but if you are in an apartment complex you will get the stink eye from the other residents when you take your dog out to walk. I am aware of some residents getting ok vet services for cats, but there haven’t been any good words for the vet services for dogs. Not sure about pet food availability. Everyone that has a pet here orders food and litter via pouch. - Aug 2021
