Most people living in Guangdong, especially foreigners, live in a high-rise apartment which can be an inconvenience if you are used to a house that opens directly to a front lawn. If you are a traveler or if you work long hours at the office, consider the amount of time your pet will be at home alone. Some expats only intend to stay in China for a few years so you must bear in mind that you will either need to relocate your pet too or leave it behind.
Pet food is increasingly showing up in grocery stores and supermarkets around Guangzhou . Most international stores such as Carrefour carry dog and cat food.
To ensure your pet is properly and safely treated, it is important to know that your vet is operating in a legally registered and officially designated animal hospital.
