Health is Wealth. Same is true for our smaller friends: cats, dogs, rabbits, parrots and all others. If your loved ones are healthy, you are doubly happy. Wishing neither you nor your loved ones will ever need the information given below.
Same as with the human medical system, there are state and private veterinary clinics in Ukraine, as well as private veterinarians. More and more private veterinary clinics are appearing in Ukraine, following the Western trends. Private clinics are quite pricy and the professional level of some veterinary specialists leaves much to be desired. But on a happy note, it's possible to find a good qualified veterinarian and great veterinary services in Ukraine, especially in big cities, like Kyiv.
State veterinary clinics are lacking the budget and very often they don't look attractive and safe. But we had a positive experience with both, state and private ones, where in both places they saved our kitten. At the state clinic they successfully treated us from panleucopenia and at the private clinic we were treated from FLUTD (feline lower urinary tract disease), including a successful surgery.
