Free veterinary

All dog, cat and ferret owners must visit a veterinary clinic within 72 hours after arriving to the territory of the Slovak Republic. 

At some border crossing and assistance centers, the veterinarians are available and provide this initial careright there. During the very first visit, the veterinarian will examine your pet to find out if it shows any symptom of rabies or any other infectious disease. If your pet does not have a microchip, it will be applied. 

Be aware that you need to assist with the clinical examination and other interventions and if your pet is difficult to handle, you should warn the staff. Ideally, if you have it, bring a muzzle for your dog. If there is any illness your pet has been suffering from and/or your pet takes any medication, tell the veterinarian.
