If we get the correct answer about bringing our dog with us, my wife and are going to relocate to Alanya within months. I have one big concern about healthcare and costs
Has anyone had any experience of this??
Should we be taking out medical insurance??
Hello jss05, I can answer your querie re.your dog as follows, we brought from the UK our toy poodle and she cost £319. You must see your local vet who will have the forms from DEFRA, your dog must have rabies injections, and before your flight a full health check within 96hrs (if I remember rightly).
the cage has to be the correct size for the dog, they will check this at the cargo dept. On arrival at Antalya "you will go to the cargo area to pick up your dog" we were told, but whilst waiting at the carousel for our bags, her cage was pushed though the flaps!!!
The process is quite straight forward, we had no problems.
As for healthcare afraid I cannot help you there, we are to old being in our 70s, but the hospitals here generaly are pretty good, my wife had to go to Can Hospital in Alanya for an op. and they were very good.
The level of medical and surgical knowledge in Turkey is equal to anything in the Uk.
Basic nursing care is mainily done by the family..washing feeding toilet ....Qualified nurses only do hands on specialist work..medicines ,injections dressings, drips etc.
