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?

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
