How we gather (and how to interpret) our data

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.

Before settling on a kennel, consider other alternatives.

Even if you turn into "that host" who makes everyon leave their shoes inside the front door, there's no way to avoid it: You'll eventually need to have your carpet and rugs cleaned.
