Our pets are our family, we all love them, want to make sure that they are healthy and feeling good. It’s always a worry when you can tell they’re not feeling well and finding a good vet can be tricky—and of course, we want only the best for our furry friends. Being cat owners ourselves, we know how important it is to have a person that you can trust and call on in an emergency, so decided to do a little research on the vets in Estremoz.

If you are registered as a resident in Portugal, then you are eligible for a Número Utente, which gives you access to all public health services and should be shown when visiting the health centre, for diagnostic tests and therapy, and also used at the pharmacy when purchasing prescription medications.

In Estremoz, getting your Número Utente it is a pretty straight-forward procedure. You simply go to the Centro de Saude from 9:00 to 13:00hrs and 14:00 to 17:30hrs, Monday to Friday, with the required documentation.

Getting around Estremoz is easy because it’s a small, compact town and you can comfortably walk to all the amenities yourself—or cycle if you fancy some exercise. But if you live further away from the town centre and don’t own a car it can get tricky. You can always rely on a friendly neighbour to give you a lift to town (from my experience I can say that the people of Estremoz are very friendly and helpful), or you could call a taxi. An easy way to get around to places without having to rely on someone else.
