If Pets Could Pick a Home, They’d Pick Here

Pet owners in some states do a better job than those in others creating a thriving home for their furry friends, according to a new survey by Care.com. Care.com recently looked at a variety of data about pet care to rank the states based on four categories: illness; access to vet care; health environment; and a “total pet spend” rank. The states with the highest rankings have the lowest prevalence of pet illnesses, higher access to veterinary care, healthier environments for pets, and higher pet-related spending. The following states ranked as the healthiest homes for pets:
  1. Montana
  2. Nebraska
  3. Colorado
  4. New Mexico
  5. Idaho
  6. New Hampshire
  7. South Dakota
  8. Wyoming
  9. Kansas
  10. North Dakota
