MEDICAL AID

There are hospitals, clinics, and apothecaries in all major towns and cities; most smaller towns have surgeries and apothecaries. Tourists from abroad who are insured in their country of origin are not required to pay for emergency medical care during private stays in the Republic of Croatia if there is a bilateral medical care agreement between Croatia and the country of origin, i.e. if they have necessary medical coverage. Medical care (incl. transport) in emergencies is regulated according to regulations that are valid for Croa- tian nationals; medical care costs are paid in the form of co-payment.

Individuals from countries where there are no bilateral medical care agreements with Croatia are required to cover all medical care costs personally.

VETERINARY SERVICES
There is a network of veterinary clinics and surgeries in Croatia. Information is available from: The Ministry of Agriculture, Fishing and Rural Development, Office for Veterinary Services
