Veterinarian services are good. Most issues with pets have to do with requirements for travel back to the US. - Jul 2022

Lots of vets and a variety of kennel services; other than that not I don't have much experience importing animals. It seems to be a pretty pet friendly place. - Oct 2018

Yes, we had great vet in La Molina that was open 24 hours. There wasn't a quarantine, but your pet had to have all of the necessary shots and paperwork to enter the country. We used a private pet shipping company to ship our dog. Knowing what I know now, I probably wouldn't have shipped our dog. He was older and the trip was very stressful on him. - Mar 2018

There are many veterinarians available, but I would operate based on recommendation from a pet owner you trust. Quality varies.

Most animals are able to entering with relatively few problems if all paperwork and vaccinations are in order. - Jul 2016

Pets need to have their vaccinations, particularly rabies, but no quarantine requirements. Quite a few good veterinarians in town, with most having been trained in the States. - May 2015

I don't personally have any pet experience, but almost all of my friends have them. Judging by this, I would assume that pet care is fine. - Apr 2015

No, pets don't need to be quarantined and there seems to be plenty of vets. - Sep 2014

No quarantine. Vet care is good. Peruvians love their dogs, and excellent trainers are abundant. The good vet clinics and groomers will pick up your pet for a small fee. - Apr 2014
