Nuevo Laredo - 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 did not have pets, so I cannot say. I do know that several of the consulate community adopted while here. There are lots of unhomed pets available. - Dec 2022

We use a local vet (Supercan) for routine checkups and immunizations. Many people take their pets across to Texas, especially for more complicated issues. - Jun 2018

No quarantine, no good vet, I have had two bad experiences locally, it is probably better to go to Laredo, you will find a kennel there. - Apr 2017

No quarantine. Vets, kennels, animal shelters, and large pet stores available in Laredo. - Feb 2016

No quarantine. Laredo has good vets and so does NLD. Laredo also has a pet hotel, but we all volunteer to watch each others dogs when someone goes out of town. - Dec 2015

No, I don't think so. - Jun 2014

Are you kidding? - Nov 2011
