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?

You can definitely bring your pets and it's not hard to get them in. You'll need the proper paperwork signed by a USDA-certified veterinarian. No quarantine is required. There are good kennel services available (Lucky Dog) and lots of vets here. Our experience with the vets hasn't been bad, but they probably aren't quite at Western standards. There are a few here and there who speak English, although most of the staff at the vets do not. I would recommend bringing any crates, leashes, collars, etc. that you think you'll need as while those things are available here, they are not available in near the variety that they are in the States. - Mar 2019
