We are conveniently situated in Al Khobar. The clinic is staffed by imported western-trained vets, assisted by local and international caring people of all nationalities (reflecting the multicultural nature of the Kingdom).

BOARDING & KENNELS

We have superlative boarding facilities at Khobar Vet Clinic, and the service includes a daily vet check, 24 hour veterinary care, your pet's personal diet, and grooming if required.

Each animal is housed in a separate apartment in our purpose-built kennels, each with a window, play area, scratching posts for cats and snuggly sleeping spots. The dog kennels are air-conditioned, and shade cloth is hung over the exercise area in summer. Dogs are exercised daily under supervision, and bathed weekly. They are also treated with an anti-tick product on admission, as we try to keep our kennels tick- and parasite-free as far as possible, for the health and safety of all animals.

PET SUPPLIES

The clinic stocks a wide range of pet care products including:


IMPORT, EXPORT & RELOCATION




IMPORT & EXPORT OF ANIMALS

IMPORT Requirements
  • Below are the basic requirements for importing dogs and cats into Saudi Arabia. Throughout the Kingdom there are a large number of outlets selling animals, everything from dogs and cats to every exotic and endangered animal imaginable including chimps, lions, tigers and bears, all in blatant contravention of CITES restrictions. Without exception animals are kept in deplorable conditions. Many attempts have been made to curb this trade, with minimal success. Expats frequently buy cats and dogs (for obscene prices) from such outlets simply to rescue the animals from their living hell. Unfortunately this serves only to further fuel the trade.

  • Vaccination Card
    • All vaccinations, especially for rabies, are recorded on this card by your local vet clinic. All vaccination stamps must be at least 30 days old, and not more than 12 months old. For dogs, this document must be stamped by the Saudi consulate in your current country of residence.
  • Health Certificate
    • The animal must have a health check up by your local vet who will provide you with a health certificate which must accompany your application for import. For dogs, this document must be stamped by the Saudi consulate in your current country of residence, and it is preferable that the Vaccination Certificate and the Health Certificate are on one piece of paper.
  • Import Certificate
    • Obtainable from the Saudi Arabian Ministry of Agriculture, usually issued two to three days before arrival of the animal in the Kingdom.
  • Dog Classification
    • Dogs may only be imported if they can be classified as either guard dogs, hunting dogs or guide dogs for the blind. Saudi Arabia will not import the following dogs (or cross breeds thereof):
      • affenpincher
      • boxer
      • bulldog
      • bull terrier
      • bull mastiff
      • Dandi Dinmont bull terrier
      • great Dane
      • griffon
      • hovawart
      • Japanese akita imu
      • Japanese spitz
      • Lancashire terrier
      • Leon Berehni
      • mastiff
      • Neopolitan mastiff
      • Newfoundland
      • rottweiler
      • Staffordshire bull terrier
      • Swedish vallhund
    • Do not attempt to import any of the above breeds, as they will be confiscated at customs. Showdogs, like Yorkshire terriers, are not listed, but may be problematic.
EXPORT Requirements
  • Below are the basic requirements no matter which country you are relocating to. With 20 years experience in the export of pets, we can help you with any other documentation etc. that is required by your new country.
  • We stock a wide range of IATA-approved travelling boxes for all sizes in our pet care shops.

  • Vaccination Card
    • All vaccinations, especially for rabies, are recorded on this card by our vet clinics. All vaccination stamps must be at least 30 days old, and not more than 12 months old.
  • Health Certificate
    • The animal must have a health check up by our vets who will provide you with a health certificate which must accompany your application for export. All EU countries insist on a rabies test as well, which we can perform for you.
  • Import Certificate
    • Obtainable from the Saudi Arabian Ministry of Agriculture, usually issued two to three days before departure of the animal from the Kingdom.
  • Microchip
    • All EU countries require that pets are microchipped. This involves inserting a microchip under the animal's skin and acts as an identity tag that can be read with a microchip reader. We can perform this simple procedure at our clinics.
