One really good vet at the nearby military hospital who does house calls and is inexpensive. No quarantine, we brought a cat. There are some strays running around but not many. Our cat did pick up some sort of infection that just got worse until we had to put her down. - Nov 2019

The embassy provided us the names of a couple of veterinarians, but we haven't had to use one yet. Lots of embassy folks have pets (cats, dogs, rabbits). Bringing our pet in was relatively easy - GSO had a sheet of exactly what needed to be done. There was no quarantine. - Apr 2018
