Quality pet care available (vets & kennels)?

There is a local vet that is wonderful. He is Burkinabe and French trained. Our dog had an acute issue and he treated her quickly and has all the supplies necessary. The facility is not even near U.S. clean but do not let that throw you. He also makes house calls. - Jul 2013

I doubt it, but I don't know. - Nov 2012

Some is available. - Aug 2010

They have a vet that can give shots and medicine and all that. But they don't have everything so you sometimes have too ship stuff like microchips for dogs. They don't board dogs, but you can get someone to watch your pets. - Aug 2008

There is one vet that I am aware of. She is nice and cares about the animals, but she is constrained by a lack of facilities, equipment, and medicine. We have lost a pet here and it was traumatic. - Jul 2008

Good pet care is available, you just have to ask where it is. Unsure about kennels, but trainers are available. - Jun 2008
