The team of veterinarians and technicians at Green Trails Animal Clinic make the time to personally get to know each family and pet who comes through the doors. That philosophy starts with the belief that a trusting relationship is necessary between the doctor and patients, especially when furry friends need medical care. Green Trails provides a full range of preventive care services for cats and dogs that include regular check-ups, vaccinations, and dental cleanings. For more serious ailments, the doctors also conduct emergency care and specialty treatments that include oxygen therapy and post operative recovery. And when you're away, the facility also takes animals in for boarding where they're fed, looked after, and taught how to win at chess.
The staff at The Holistic BodyLab works to maintain long-term health with natural, non-pharmaceutical treatments. Led by in-house medical director, Dr. Joseph Maides, and natural medicine doctor, Kevin Gill, they blend spa treatments, such as facials, with holistic treatments, such as massage, in order to revivify bodies both inside and out. This mix of modern medicine and age-old spa treatments aims to both soothe and heal, just like all those old lullabies about mockingbirds curing babies' tension headaches.
With its cozy decor and absence of ominous cages, The Dog Waggin’s welcoming facility gives busy pet owners peace of mind as their pups comfortably socialize and play. The 4,000-square-foot digs house a play room with pooch playground equipment—including slides and tunnels—a relaxing play room—characterized by fluffy pet beds—and a backyard, where dogs can caper about or stretch out and bronze their bods in time for swimsuit season. Pups are free to rest and play as they see fit with their fellow boarders, all under staff supervision during daytime outings and overnight stays. The canine caretakers also offer a number of other services, including walking, in-home sitting, and training from owner and certified dog trainer Lisa Harvey.

The horseback lesson takes place at Sunflower Farms, which boasts 170 acres of pristine wooded lakefront farmland, ideal for galloping horses and running a mildly successful Internet business. Start the two-hour session with an hour-long ground lesson that helps riders get to know their horses, covers the basics of riding equipment, and teaches horse-grooming methods. Once riders feel comfortable enough around a horse to not be overwhelmed with the desire to challenge it to a staring contest, they'll saddle up and ride for a full hour, outfitted with a certified helmet from Saddlers Row. Sunflower Farms instructors will work with riders of any skill level, from beginner to competition level.
