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 don't have pets but many people we know do. There are great vets here who are very knowledgeable and kind. There are kennel services but I'm less sure if people think they are good quality. Many people will hire someone or have their empleada care for their animals while they are gone. Animals are not quarantined upon entry. - Jul 2019

Yes. People like their veterinarians, some make house calls. No quarantine. Fairly easy to bring in pets. Pets are welcome at many places, parks, some hotels, etc. Lots of dogs here. - Jul 2018

There are good vet services and boarding places. No quarantine. - Mar 2017

I use a vet from the Netherlands who has lived here forever. She speaks English and even makes house calls. They board cats and dogs, and the facility is just fine. Animals do not need to be quarantined but make sure you have done ALL the paperwork or your animal might stay locked up in a cargo facility. - Sep 2016
