Pets in the City: Support

Share this story:

You’ve moved to Luxembourg with your pet, or have decided to add to your family with a furry friend… now what? Here is City Savvy’s guide to Luxembourg pet etiquette, where to find a veternarian, what to do with your pet when you go on holiday and how to groom or train that bouncy puppy.

What to do in an Emergency

You can call 112 in an emergency to find the name and address of duty veternarians. Emergency and on duty veterinarians are also published on a daily basis in the national newspapers and an up to date list of on-duty veternarians is also provided on the Association des Médicins Vétérinaires du Grand-Duché de Luxembourg (AMVL) website.

Finding a Veterinarian

Most vets speak excellent English in Luxembourg. Whilst the best is always a personal recommendation, sometimes this isn’t possible so for a complete list of veterinarians please click here.

Pet Etiquette

When you take your dog out for a walk you should clean up its poop yourself. Bags for dog poop are available from around 250 distribution points in the city. They are also available at Tourist Offices, the Bierger Centre and recycling centres. In addition, there are designated dog pooping areas within the city that are regularly cleaned.

Dogs should be kept on a leash in built up areas, public carparks, public transport and sports grounds.
