Quality pet care available (vets & kennels)?

Adequate. Not great. But they make house calls, and I love that. I hear there is no acceptable kennel. I hired a housekeeper and part of her job description is pet care while we are away. She watched my dog all summer long. - Aug 14, 2013
It is, but you have to do your homework and find the right people. - May 18, 2013
Not much. Not a great place for pets if they are more than just decorative. - Oct 21, 2012
Good vets, we've yet to find a kennel. Animal food isn't too expensive. - Sep 16, 2012
Increasingly available. - Aug 12, 2011

Yes. Dr. Kunal at Max Vets rocks. - Aug 4, 2011
Vets, yes. - Jan 8, 2011
Mediocre vet care. Mainly focused on animal rescue. Lots of street dogs and stray cattle deserve medical care but are left to fend for themselves as "community animals", sadly dying of neglect. - Sep 18, 2010
So-so... There are some vets in Gurgaon and they have been ok with my dog. Pets are still seen as a extravagant trend of rich people. - Aug 30, 2010
No quality pet care though kennels are available. When using vets in India, confirm treatment with your US vet. - Aug 12, 2010
The vets are not what you are used to back home, but there are some good ones. I have not heard of many kennels. - Aug 1, 2010
The vets are not what you are used to back home but there are some good ones. I have not heard of many kennels; people usually get their staff to look after their pets. NOTE: If you are coming with a dog or cat and they might need an operation - bring one of those Elizabethan collars with you to stop them biting the operated area. - Mar 11, 2008
