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?

Yes on vets. - Dec 2018


There are a few dependable vets, though it can be a challenge. There is no quarantine. For dog owners, the biggest challenge is the lack of green space. If you have a big dog, make point of requesting a house or apartment with a garden. - Jun 2017


No quarantine, but valid rabies vaccine. Good vet care. No kennels, but most people can find a friend to take care of their pet while on trips. - Apr 2016


No quarantine. There's a vet who makes house calls. - Aug 2015


Nope! There are many pets at post. The roads are not great for walking, as there are many stray dogs that would come up. The Embassy owns a large softball field and play area called Ebbettâs Field which is a wonderful space for pets to run and play. There are weekly play dates for dogs. There are also a number of great vets (French trained, a few speak English) that will also make house calls. There are no kennels, so we would have friends or our housekeeper stay at the house when we traveled. We were very happy to have our dogs with us. - Aug 2014
