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?

No quarantine. Excellent veterinary care. We kenneled our dog with the vet. - May 2016

No, they just need the chip and passport. Quality pet care is available and good. - Jul 2014

The dogs have to follow the EU procedure to come here. No quarantine if everything is according to the EU rules! - Aug 2011

No. Pets do need to be micro-chipped and have proof of vaccination within a certain time-frame. The regulations are the same as elsewhere in the EU and depend on where you are coming from. - Jun 2011

No, they just need a passport, microchip and the regular vaccinations (rabies, etc). - Mar 2011

No quarantine needed, but you do need to have a health certificate from your vet before you arrive as well as have the pet micro chipped with a chip that's readable in Europe (maybe it's called an ISO chip), as well as a rabies shot within a year before you come but not less than a month. Check with GSO on this before you come. - Jun 2010
