Denver still best for pets, says survey

Denver's the best city in the country to own a pet, according to a survey.

The Purina Pet Institute ranked cities in 30 different categories, including veterinarians per capita, preventive care, animal shelters, air quality, obesity/body condition and low reports of Lyme disease. Denver was atop the institute's first study in 2001 and remained at the top this year because it scored high in many categories, including the availability of emergency and critical care with more than 62 veterinarians accredited by the Veterinary Emergency and Critical Care Society, more than any city surveyed.

Following Denver in the survey were Oakland, Portland, Anaheim and San Francisco.

"This study honors cities, such as Denver, that understand the important role they play in the health of their community's pets. And hopefully, they inspire other communities as well," said Dan Christian, executive director of the Purina Pet Institute, in a statement.

The nation's worst five cities for pets, according to the survey rankings, were: Riverside, Calif.; Norfolk, Va.; Charlotte, N.C.; Orlando, Fla. and Indianapolis.
