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?

Plenty of decent vets although several families have had an animal die from various causes or gotten sick and not ever really sure why or how. There are plenty of street animals to choose from if you decide to help the local animal population. - Jan 2019
