Quality pet care available (vets & kennels)?

While Emiratis (and many Muslims) don't like dogs, we haven't had many problems in public with ours. There are a couple of international-quality vet clinics (German, British, and American), and I've heard about a new "five-star" kennel. Supplies of specific medicines can be inconsistent, so we try to keep stocked up on basics for our dog. - May 2013

Adequate. There are American, British, and German clinics, with fans of each. I wouldn't kennel my dog in any of them, but we get good care. This is definitely not a dog culture (can't take them to parks, the beach), etc., but there aren't many problems, especially if you have some outdoor space at home. - Aug 2011

Yes. - Jul 2011

I've heard it is decent, but I don't know. - Nov 2010

I'm not a pet owner but do know of two vet clinics in the area. - Jan 2010

British Vet (best!) and the American Vet Clinic. AVC has a kennel, but its the only one I know of. - Aug 2009
