Hello all,

My husband and i will be moving back to Singapore from China after 5 long years here.
My biggest worry is really how the 30 days quarantine will be for our little boy.

Does anyone have any experience with the Quarantine Center or how your dogs are after returning from the Quarantine Center? I tried to go check out the place, but was told i cant just pop in to have a look

Any advice or sharing of experience will be appreciated.

Also would like to ask if anyone have a good vet to recommend? We are going to be living in the east (Simei).

Thank you

My understanding although the quarantine centre is opened 9-5pm but visiting hours is only 2 hours in the late afternoon.

Place is located in sembawang. not very easily assessable. Clean thou. There is a yard where you can bring your dog out and spend quality time when you visit.

A few pple I know who have returned overseas found it to be a painful affair for themselves and their pets during the quarantine period as the time spent was very short and the trauma of having to walk out of the place saying goodbye to their pets. But once the month is over it was a huge sigh of relief.

Good vets in your area would be Animal Recovery Centre located at Tampines St 11, or Animal Clinic at Telok Kurau.

Thanks so much, Anderson.
Its good to know that the area is at least clean and have a yard.

Like you said, it will be painful esp walking out of the place and saying good bye. As it is, whenever we have to travel and leave Buster at the pet hotel, i am already crying when i drop him off.... i cant imagine the crying i will do in that month.. haha..

Thanks for your recommendation on vets. I will check them out when i return.

Meanwhile, i am just keeping my fingers crossed on our flight and quarantine experience...

Hong Kong to Singapore: NO quarantine needed

China to Hong Kong : NO quarantine needed...

ya.. the quarantine rules can be a little bizzarre!
From China to UK, the quarantine is 6 months!!!!! so luckily we are coming back to Singapore first (from Spore to UK, no need quarantine, phew).

The other thing i dont understand is - to bring a pet back to Singapore now, we will need to send the blood to a lap in UK to test for rabies (which is damn expensive!). If we already pass the test, why do we still need 1 whole month of quarantine????? Do they not trust the blood test results that they make us take? if dont trust, then why make us take the test?

Oh well, anyway, we can only blap away.. nothing we can do to change the rules i suppose.. :-X

I suppose china must have a lot of rabies cases... the new ruling was that pets from rabies-free countries do not need or have less quarantine time.

Some diseases need time to develop before a positive test result can be obtained, rabies being the most dangerous to local pets and wildlife I suppose
