Brasilia - 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?

We have two dogs and they've had good care here. no special quarantines from host country. Overall Brazilians love their pets and you see them walking them frequently and in the parks - Oct 2021

Yes, our vet even makes house calls. We got our dog here, so I don't know about quarantine requirements. This is a great place for pets. We have a big dog and live in an apartment, but there is lots of green space for her to play fetch and run around. She even has a trainer that she works with twice a week. There are places to take her for fun as well - she loves to swim in the lake and go to friends houses. - May 2017
