Which US State Has The Healthiest Pets? Where Your State Ranks For Pet And Human Health, According To Study

If you’re looking for the healthiest pet, you may want to consider living on the West Coast. An investigation done by Care.com’s Think Tank included data from all 50 states and the District of Columbia. The analysts came up with their rankings of states with the healthiest pets using four categories: prevalence of pet-related illness, access to veterinary care, healthy environment, and non-medical pet-related expenses. Their data included only cats and dogs.

The rankings by Gallup were determined with a 55-question survey taken by over 177,000 Americans. Survey questions asked Americans how they feel about their physical health, social connections, finances, community, and sense of purpose.
