While others often wonder at the love some pet owners have for their domestic cats, dogs, rabbits or birds, Ho Chi Minh City has come to offer a number of animal shops, hotels, shelters and hospitals in recent years that generally caters more to its expat community.
Consequently, animal food is not readily available in just any local supermarket, and especially veterinary clinics tend to locate in out-of-town residential areas like District 2 or District 7. The veterinarians and quality of care, however, reach international standards.
Many homeowners in Vietnam won’t allow pets in their apartments, houses and villas, so do check before moving to a new place in Saigon. Should you ever wish to travel without your faithful companion, there are some pet hotels across town, and even several spas and beauty salons to pamper your pet!
