Seoul - Post Report Question and Answers

Quality pet care available (vets & kennels)?

Yes, Koreans treat some of their pets like their own children. - Sep 2013

You will have to shop around, but quality vet care is available throughout Seoul. There is a 24 hour vet clinic in Kangnam (Chiryo Myeong Myeong/ Bow Wow Care)that provided us with excellent care when our dog was sick. There is also a well known vet clinic in Itaewon. Kennels are available. The best one that I have found is a Korean speaking place in Kangnam called Puppy School. It's probably best to have a Korean friend help you when contacting them. Kennels sometimes have breed restrictions. - Jan 2011

Seems ok for cats on base. - Dec 2010

Pet care is good here although if your cat or dog is ill and needs blood, you may have to source it from a blood bank in the States or elsewhere as it is scare or non-existent in Korea. - Sep 2009
