Abidjan - 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?

Yes. - Mar 2021

We have a dog and a cat, and I would say the vets are barely adequate. no quarantine. Our dog got putse fly eggs imbedded in his neck so that was disgusting. Our cat is free roaming and we worry but we cannot seem to change him. He eats a lot of lizards. Bring all meds with you. you cannot get frontline or similar here. - May 2020

Animals do not need quarantine if they are properly papered, but they will be if there are not. Do you want your animal quarantined in a developing country? I didn't think so! So learn everything about importing animals to Cote d'Ivore and there shouldn't be any issues. I don't own any pets so I can't speak to specifics. - Feb 2020

No quarantine. There are very basic vet services. There is no high-level care. - Mar 2017

No problems at all bringing in pets if you follow the guidelines, though I don't even think we needed to do that! Vets here are mostly enthusiasts and are not comparable to what's available in the developed world. - Aug 2015
