Dhaka - 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?

Dogs will not enjoy life here. There is practically no green space and wild dogs line the streets so it may not be a great experience trying to walk them. There is a good vet around that people use. A cat would be a fine pet to have here. - Jul 2023

I hear it's okay. - Dec 2021

There are a few vets but the quality is hit or miss. There have been some serious issues with the vets but I think it is pretty easy to get animals in the country without quarantine. It is easy to hire help to walk dogs during the day as well. - Jul 2018

There are some local veterinarians, and some even make house calls. - Apr 2017

Not sure, as I don't have a pet, but I can't imagine that there are good veterinary services here. - Jun 2016

No quarantine, vets make house-calls (although quality of vet care isn't the best), no kennels. - May 2016

No quarantine, but it's expensive and complicated to import and export. There's a vet who will come to your house (no clinic) and neuter your cat on your kitchen table. You get to clean up afterward. - Jul 2014
