Mumbai - 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?
We brought in two cats. No quarantine, but the before-arrival paperwork took months. It wasn't difficult, just slow with a lot of hoops jump through. We hired an Indian 'pet expediting' company before we arrived to help with the local paperwork; standing in line to file certificates and get forms stamped, etc. Leaving the country required less paperwork. Vets are cheap and competent. Welcome to the land of US$5 x-rays and $1 shots! - Mar 2019
Yes. A few days I believe. Yes, there are kennels and vets here. - Aug 2015
No. It was easy to bring our cats. We have a 3rd or 4th year vet student who comes to cat-sit for us when we travel, because one of our cats gets insulin. Most people just have their housekeeper take care of their animals when they travel, unless it's an extended absence. Then people ask a friend. - Nov 2014
