Quality pet care available (vets & kennels)?

Good vets can be found without much problem and are cheap. - Jan 2013

Yes. Carolina Faz Basurto was a great vet - CLO has her numbers. - May 2012

Go by recomendations only, and even then be careful. The embassy used to recommend a pet service that nearly killed one dog and made a half dozen more seriously ill. Animania in Polanco is run by a very qualified English-speaking vet who truly loves animals and offers excellent kennel services. - Apr 2010

very good - Feb 2010

Yes. Many vets make house calls! - Jan 2010

Yes, but be careful and screen them first. Do not use Campus Canino near Cuernavaca as our dog passed away under their care during transport. They were the "best" you could find, and were negligent. You can find other options that are recommended by embassy personnel. - Mar 2009

Same as you would get in the State; if not better. I love the fact that the vet comes to my house or the kennel service comes to my house. - Nov 2008

Wonderful vet care and kennels. I'd recommend Dangu Kennels if you need them. In the country but well worth the trip, and your animal won't be traumatized when she returns. They cover all sorts of animals, not just dogs and cats. We drove in with our animals, which we've heard is much easier than flying into the country with them (ditto for leaving). - Oct 2008
