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?

Personally no experience; however, other expats with pets reported importing a pet was easy. There are qualified veterinarians available at a very reasonable cost compared to the U.S. Cats and dogs are not quarantined upon entry. Western pet foods are readily available. There are also kennels in Minsk. Some are called pet hotels, others are individual pet-keeping services. There are kennels located in the city and also outside of Minsk. Some kennels are for all types of pets. There are also kennels that are only for cats. Prices vary a little, for a dog it is about US $10 a day (feeding, cleaning and walking the dog). Kennels for cats are about $5 a day. - Apr 2019
