Pets in Colombo have a pretty good life; while researching this we discovered there is a whole other world when it comes to pet-loving in Colombo. It is worth noting that if you are keen to live in an apartment but already have a pet the only apartment block which will allow you to keep pets is the JAIC Hilton. Honestly, it is very hard to find an apartment that will allow pets. Houses are much more flexible.

1. At Home Visits

Dr. Thiyagi Fonseka | 071 832 2833

Dr. Thiyagi comes highly recommended. As a vet who is incredibly trustworthy, she develops wonderful rapport with the animals and will give them her very best care.

2. Pet Vet Clinic

Opening Hours: 9am – 8.30pm | 155 Kirula Road, Colombo 05 | 011 259 9799

This is a very modern vet surgery with vets who have international training and a passion for the animals in their care. We recommend Dr. Chandika, Dr. Alisha and Dr Alex for larger pets, like horses.

3. Rover

Opening Hours: 8am-10pm | 123/4 Pannipitiya Road, Battaramulla | 0112 076 070

This is the newest of the veterinary surgeries in Colombo and they have a good standard of equipment including animal scanners. It is cheaper than Pet Vet but still provides a great level of care. They have a 24-hour emergency service too.

4. Best Care

Opening Hours: 8am-8pm (8am-5pm on poya days) | 43 Pagoda Rd, Nugegoda | 0773400800

We’ve found this to be the cheapest of the veterinary options. They are good, but perhaps the above should be your first ports of call, unless it’s one of those minor things that you’re confident don’t need in-depth examination.
