We will be going over everything we know about pets in Oslo in full detail for you today. Whether you are a current owner or trying to find a new special friend there should be plenty of info here to help you figure out your next move.
Our initial section will be all about the best Oslo pet stores. We figure since they are a good place to buy puppies, kittens, toys, food, and supplies they will probably be the most popular section of this post.
Dog or cat adoption at the best animal shelters in your area of Norway will be up next. With so much overpopulation the adoption route is the choice of many these days.
The dog lovers will love our next few sections which are about dog parks, puppy trainers, and dog bakeries near you. Then we will jump into grooming and dog or cat cafes around the city. Hotels that allow pets to check in will also get their own section for any new visitors to the area.
As the post goes on you can also expect to learn about the best places for pet boarding if you are traveling out of town yourself. At the end we will get into some unfortunate topics like veterinarians and dog or cat cremation.
There will also be a local pet map to help you figure out which places are closest to your current area. This link has a huge list of our posts on Europe if you want to compare the scene here to others on the continent.
