Let me introduce Carly. She is our 7 year old Bichon Friese. The poor little girl spent the first 3 1/2 years of her life in a puppy mill in Pennsylvania. If any of you are unaware of the term,a puppy mill is a place where healthy female pedigree dogs are kept in a cage,and their sole purpose is to breed,and their litters are sold to pet stores for large profits. Very little concern is given to their comfort or care. When the time comes that they are no longer producing large enough or healthy enough litters,they are simply euthanized and then replaced with another unfortunate female. This was Carly's lot in life when we found and subsequently rescued her. Needles to say,we have spent the last 3 1/2 years giving her a life that she never knew existed. Truth be told- she's spoiled rotten.
Now,what in the world does this have to do with property ownership in Mexico real estate,you may ask. Well,if you are the proud parents of a four-legged child,one of your major concerns when contemplating a move out of your home country has to be the veterinary care that your pet will receive.
Prior to making our move to Mexico,Rosie and I came down to check out several things,including veterinary care. It was during this visit that Dr. Juan Erazo Garcia of the Clinica Veterinaria Tulum in Tulum was highly recommended to us.
Dr. Garcia is a soft-spoken gentleman whose English is quite good. He is extremely knowledgable and we trust him completely with Carly's care. Unfortunately she has some intestinal issues,which may or may not be the result of her forced breeding. Whatever the cause,Dr. Garcia has been wonderful with the treatment of her. He is gentle and has a real respect and love for his patients. His care rivals any that we found back in the States.
Many folks who are retiring to Mexico are marveled by the medical care that they receive,as well as the price for that health care. It is typically 70% less than the same procedures north of the border. The same can be said for veterinary care. Just recently we took Carly for her annual checkup including rabies,leptospirosis and distemper vaccines. She also required medication for her intestinal problem. The entire cost for this visit,including the 2 months supply of medication was $460 pesos or roughly $38.00 US!!!
Now,what do you think this same care would have cost you where you live?
Top quality veterinary care at a fraction of the cost. Just another reason why Mexico should be on your short list of retirement destinations.
