How we gather (and how to interpret) our data

Before settling on a kennel, consider other alternatives.

Just as you carefully choose doctors to treat the humans near and dear to you, you want top-notch healthcare for your pets. Our ratings will help you find a veterinarian who provides the care your critter deserves without wrecking your treat budget.

Because many health problems are subtle and easily overlooked, you should regularly evaluate your pet’s general health with a nose-to-tail inspection.

To assess the true value of pet insurance, we conducted an in-depth cost/benefit analysis of nine plans. Visit our "Pet Insurance" section for those results.

Even though you can do for yourself almost anything a travel agency can do for you, there are still reasons to use one.

Your first question for prospective agencies should be whether or not they have staffers who specialize in where you want to go.

Here are some pointers for getting the most out of any agency you hire.
