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?

Zoogle, a foreign-owned all-inclusive pet store and veterinary care service is the place to start. They even have kennels. I'm not super impressed with the hygiene of the surgery room, but they have a great selection of pets, stock, and food choices, and seem to be on the right track. - Aug 2019


There are few vets used by expats. - Apr 2019


There are a Belgian and a Congolese Vet available who will make house calls, prescribe medication, etc. There are no kennel services but lots of people willing to pet sit. No quarantine, have all your documents (and a $20 bill) handy at the airport and you'll be fine. - Dec 2017

Yes, there is a good Belgian vet in Macampagne and a good Congolese vet in Limete who made house calls. - Sep 2016


No quarantine. Pretty easy importation (rabies shot). There are vets - a Belgian vet where many people take their pets, and there are now several vets at Zoogle, a large pet store run by City Market. - Apr 2016

I don't believe so. If you need to have a pet, pick up any of the strays on the street. - Jan 2011
