When buying a pet from a pet shop, pay particular attention to the animals' health and nutrition. Neglect is not uncommon and your chosen animal may not be as healthy as you would like your new pet to be. Your best bet is to purchase your pet from a reliable pet shop, and one that preferably has been recommended to you from another satisfied customer..

Although rabies is rare in Turkey, it is not unheard of, and for that reason we suggest that you are cautious of street dogs. If a dog bites you seek immediate medical attention.
If you wish to bring your pet with you, or to buy a new one here, there are a few important things you should know. For starters, we suggest that you check with your landlord or Yönetici (The person who is responsible of the administrative works, such as collecting monthly expenses of the building etc.) to ensure that pets are indeed permitted in your new home.
If you intend to leave Turkey with your pet, be sure to consult the consulates or embassies of your transit and final destination countries for their regulations regarding pets.
The addresses of pet shops, pet hospitals and dog training centers are listed in our Yellow Pages.
