Comments :    Thank you Susan (Animals Away) and Abhi (American Veterinary Clinic) for safely transporting Toby, our Traveling Toy Poodle, for the second time! It is always a pleasure working with the two of you. You are both very professional, effective, and efficient. You make this complicated process manageable. By far, your services are top-notch compared to other services we have experienced. We will only use your services in the future. Keep up the great work that you do!

Comments :    Both Lisa and I wish to send our heartfelt thanks to the Import/Export team at AVC. We were customers in the past for the clinic (2015-2017) and have always been pleased with the kind service, helpful information, and sympathetic ear of the staff. Our recent move back to the UAE from Kuwait was done in part with the assistance of Abhi and the rest of the Import/Export team. They were always helpful and provided accurate and timely assistance and information throughout the entire process. When the time comes for us to depart the GCC, we will certainly be using their services again.

Comments :    Dear AVC vets, Abhi and relocating team, a big thank you for your help in getting my two cats to Ireland. There was a lot of stress in sorting out my own exit as a teacher and you took care of everything for my pets. It was a great relief and you were professional and patient from the beginning to the end. I was so happy to see my cats when I landed in Dublin! They are in the process of settling in to their new surroundings and I am readjusting to being home after 8 years in Abu Dhabi. Thank you again and I recommended you to all my friends!! :)

Comments :    Dear Abhi and the AVC team, thank you so much for helping me relocate my cat Neville to the UK from Abu Dhabi. You took care of the whole process for me and everything was very well organised so I did not need to worry about anything. I was even sent photos of Neville as he went through customs and was ready to board the plane. Neville is now enjoying his new home in England and being able to explore outside. Thank you again and I would definitely recommend you to anyone who needs to relocate their animals to and from the UAE.

Comments :    Many thanks to Abhi and the relocation team at the American Vet Clinic. Four years ago we relocated our two dogs to Abu Dhabi and just recently back again to the US. The team at AVC were so professional and caring during the whole process both ways. They took care of every detail which helped to ease the stress of moving our fur babies. I would highly recommend them to anyone having to move a pet to or from the UAE!

Comments :    I would like to say Thank You to Abhi and the AVC staff. They helped relocate our 2 dogs and 1 cat to Abu Dhabi from San Diego, CA. The process is complicated and we could not have done it without their knowledge. Abhi responded quickly to every email with knowledgeable answers to my many questions. I strongly recommend their service to anyone moving to the UAE. Our pets are here safe with us and we are very grateful. Thank you.

Comments :    Just wanted to share how pleased we are with the Cattery and import of our cat Sultan from Saudi Arabia. We wished we weren't required to have our cat in a cage for 5 weeks, but since we had to, there's no one better to have cared for him than Eddie. He's unbelievably caring and we are beyond thankful for the attention that he's given our cat. If we could rate him on a scale of 1-5, he'd be a TEN! Thank you!

Comments :    Rinoy and the rest of the AVC team were a dream to work with during the relocation of our 19 year old cat from Abu Dhabi to the UK. Their professionalism and kindness made the whole process much less stressful for everyone and I would 100% recommend them to anyone else!

Comments :    Thank you so very much to Abhi and the AVC Team for arranging Toby’s return home to the USA a pleasant experience! Our initial experience several months ago getting Toby to the UAE with another service was very complicated and not as pleasant. Therefore, Abhi and the AVC Team’s excellent service is well recognized and greatly appreciated! Abhi and the AVC Team coordinated everything from start to finish on both the UAE and USA sides. All parties involved on both ends were professional, accommodating, and easy to work with. After a more than 27-hour journey, door-to-door from Abu Dhabi to Westchester, NY, Toby was delivered to us safely and as happy as can be! We can’t say it enough…thank you, thank you, thank you to Abhi and the AVC Team!

Comments :    A special ‘thank you’ to Mr Abhi Chetri and the AVC Team who helped us relocate our two cats ‘Panda’ and ‘Tiger’ from Abu Dhabi to Australia. The services provided were so professional. Abhi was very knowledgeable, attentive and friendly throughout the whole process and we commend him for such a wonderful service. Everything went smoothly from beginning to end. We would also like to thank Dr Reid who gave medical attention to our cats for the past 5 years. He was always so friendly and genuinely cared for our pets. We will surely miss the AVC Team. Our blessings and best wishes.

Comments :    We used American Vet for importing and exporting our two Golden Retrievers and they made the transition so smooth. Exporting and importing pets is done in a professional and caring manner. Abhi and the staff treated us and our pets like we were family. All our concerns were addressed promptly and with kindness. American Vet are a wonderful company and I could not more highly recommend them to anyone thinking of bringing their pets to the UAE or flying them home.

Comments :    My dog Polo has been going to AVC kennel for the past 12 years. We just picked her up after one month stay. She was as happy as never left home. She is very well-adjusted back to our daily routine. Thank you Bombie, Erwin, and the team for taking care of her. I was so surprised to receive the photo CD you guys prepared!!! It was so cute to see Polo played with other dogs as normally she was very timid around them. It's like she has a secret life I don't know about. You guys are the best!!!

Comments :    Abhi was fantastic. Throughout the potentially nerve-racking move of our dog Aden from Abu Dhabi to Geneva he was there to answer our endless questions and worries. He showed great empathy and a real love for animals. We are very grateful.

Comments :    Abhi and the relocation team were outstanding as we moved from Abu Dhabi to Lisbon with three cats we adore. Everyone arrived safely, happily and on time -- and we could not be more grateful for the tremendous expertise, professionalism and compassion demonstrated by AVC staff. Thank you to everyone involved, especially Abhi and Drs Reid and Tammy. You are all amazing.

Comments :    I just wanted to say thank you to the entire staff. The export team was wonderful and made getting our cats into the UAE so much less stressful for us. Everyone on the staff is kind and caring towards the animals they see. I have never seen my cats open up affectionately to anyone besides my family before. Everyone did a great job communicating with us during the move and the boarding process. I was highly impressed by the cleanliness of the cattery as well as the size of the accommodations for each of my cats. They had ample room to climb and play during their stay. We loved the facilities and the staff is so wonderful that we have decided to continue to use American Veterinary Clinic's services for our pets while we live in the UAE.

Comments :    The team made our transistion from NYC to Abu Dhabi seamless. They even pointed out an error in the shipping details the day of travel literally hours before. Upon landing, the team ensured safe transistion and the boarding/kennel team is always accomodating to me and my dog (Dante). I recommend this clinic/kennel to anyone moving relocating or boarding.

Comments :    The most stressful part of our move to the UK was taking along our twelve year old cat. Abhi and the staff at AVC were very reassuring. The process was uncomplicated and each step was clearly explained and organised by Abhi. Our cat arrived at Heathrow with all paperwork processed and ready to go to his new home. All of Misty's needs were taken care of: being booked on a night flight to avoid any exposure to heat, water frozen in a bowl for his use in transit, his special diet attached. etc. Full marks to Abhi and the AVC team. Excellent service.

Comments :    The most stressful part of moving is the worry about your pets. Abhi and his team were so awesome! My two dogs and rescue cat were shipped from AD to Texas. It was as seemless a transition as one could wish for. Our pets were so well cared for and pampered, even received photos from the waiting area at the airport. I couldnt have imagined trying to coordinate this myself. Would highly recommend AVC to anyone shipping their pets.

Comments :    I can't say thank you enough to Rinoy and the team at American Veterinary Clinic. Our 2 dogs just moved to Belgium and without your help, I can't imagine how stressful it would have been. Stella and May are now living it up in the greenery of Belgium and are having a ball. They have seen swans, foxes, pigs and cows for the first time (and that was just in the first day!!) I would use your services again in a heartbeat. Many thanks from myself and most importantly Stella and May !

Comments :    I am so glad that we used the AVC to assist us in importing our dog to Abu Dhabi. Abhi was great to work with, as he answered all of my questions in a thorough and timely manner. I feel that the AVC truly cares about their customers and the pets, of course, and I was really impressed with the quality of service.

Comments :    Thank you! The hardest part of my move from NY to Abu Dhabi was my stress over Freya, my 15 year old cat who has lived in 3 countries (now 4!), but has never flown cargo before, always being in the plane with me. But Abhi was amazing every step of the way, walking me through the process and the paperwork. On arrival, the AVC team had Freya delivered to the hotel in a few hours-- and she was apparently a bit of a rock star going through customs! Freya's adjusted quickly to her new life here. I would highly recommend the AVC team-- they were amazing. Thank you!! Warm regards, Amy & Freya

They were both very kind, patient, professional and so very helpful. Without them, we wouldn't have been able to make our move happen. We will recommend you to everyone! Moose and Grizzly are doing very well in adapting to Abu Dhabi life :-) Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!!!!!!

Comments :    I want to express my thanks to Rinnoy Job and the team at AVC for relocating my two cats to the UK. I was worried about the process and of course wanted to ensure that the cats were as comfortable as possible on the flight. Rinnoy and his team went out of their way to reassure me at every step and also made a special effort to accommodate my request to include the cats blankets and toys in their cages to provide some familiarity for them whilst travelling. I received word last night that they arrived safely and happy and delivered to the door of the cattery where they will stay temporarily until I arrive. I have used the AVC for the past 8 years and have been a regular at the cattery over vacation periods where the cats have been so well cared for they actually don't mind going there! The staff are consistently friendly and cheerful and really appreciate how much we love our pets. If you are new to Abu Dhabi I would not hesitate in recommending the AVC Team for all your pet needs. By best wishes to Rinnoy and all the staff at the AVC for a successful and happy 2014. Gail

Comments :    I just wantt o say a huge thank you to everyone at AVC who was involved in moving our golden lab, Buddy back to the UK. Having recently lost Buddys sister we were very unsure about this move but it could not have been handled in a more sympathetic way by Rinoy and his team. We were kept informed every step of the way and eveyone who we had dealings with were kind, caring and compassionate towards our whole family. Buddy was a chilled out dog as he boarded his flight and arrived safe and sound with all paperwork completed he was on his way to his new temporary home within 3 hours of landing, this can only be due to the meticulous care taken by everyone at AVC who made this happen. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts, you guys are so clearly passionate about what you are doing and it shows. Well done and thank you x

Comments :    Dear AVC team, I have to give you guys the biggest thanks for getting my Gav to us here in Qatar from the UAE, You worked thru all the issues i was having with me and kept our Gav in your Kennels who took amazing care of him (he came to us with more weight on him i'm sure) for a long 7weeks after myself and family left the UAE, Once we had manged to sort our residence the AVC export team worked very fast and got our Gav here in less than a week (after all docs were in place ready to go.) So i have to say thank you guys again so much for taking excellent care of our Dog and getting him to us unscaved and if you didn't know you would never have guessed he had just traveled on his first plane journey. He was as giddy as ever and pleased to see us as i was hoping he would and the AVC team delivered the perfect dog we left with them 7weeks earlier. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR EVERYTHING. Graham and Family and GAV too.

Comments :    Dear AVC Words cannot express my gratitude towards your excellent service you have provided me. Moving from Germany to the UAE for my dog, Theodore Bundy, was a fabulous experience. From helping me with all the paper work, clearing him at the airport, taking him to the boarding facilities, and just spoiling him rotten, has been ever so wonderful. I thank you all from the bottom of my heart. I visited that crazy dog of mine the other day, and he was too busy playing with his "friends!" He is loving every single moment and that makes me so happy. Thank you all!

Comments :    AVC did a fantastic job in helping us relocate our cat 'JJ' to Abu Dhabi. Abhi Chhetri was attentive to every detail and promptly responded to any questions we had. Abhi made sure all the proper forms were in place and kept us informed about JJ's arrival and clearance in Dubai. We were also pleased with the vet check that followed JJ's long flight and the clean kennel facility and friendly staff at AVC. I would highly recommend AVC for your pet relocation needs.

Comments :    Dear Abhi and all of the members of the American Vet Team, Thank you so much for your kindness, compassion and professionalism in assisting me with Morris. Morris is my sweet little street cat I found during my stay in Abu Dhabi. The team boarded him, helped with all of his vaccination and neutering needs and follow up appointments as I prepared to ship him home to the US. I am very grateful for the flexibility shown by Abhi every time my travel plans changed and when finally I had to ship him to another person in the US as I remained in Abu Dhabi even longer. Abhi coordinated everything, handled many adjustments and kept both me and my friend in the States fully informed. I would not have been able to get my sweet boy home without Abhi and the team. Thank you!!! I cannot wait to get home to him!
