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, and there are many vets and pet stores. There are also many great parks that are perfect for walking a dog. Be aware that many owners, though, let their dogs walk off-leash. Their pets are usually well behaved, but if yours are not, just be aware. The city has some kennel services, but most people have friends or their dog walkers watch their pets as needed. - Jul 2018

We don't have pets, but people who do seem very happy. There is a pet store on every corner and multiple vets. You can take your dog into some malls and on the tram! Parks allow you to let your dog off the leash in certain areas. Croatians love their dogs and cats, and it seems that many people let their animals roam free in the neighborhoods in the quieter parts of the suburbs. - Apr 2016
