Anthem Pet Medical Center is not different just because it cares for all kinds of family pets, but because it provides truly comprehensive care. That includes medical, surgical, and dental treatments, as well as holistic care, such as acupuncture. Whether families bring in a pooch, feline, rabbit, or rat, staff members perform treatments suited to the furry loved one with compassion and expertise.
Sonoran Desert Pet Resort's 1,500-square-foot, air-conditioned indoor dog park simulates the outdoors with the same artificial turf used for professional football fields so pooches can wrestle, dive for balls, or perform elaborate touchdown dances safely during daycare hours.
Overnight guests bed in private rooms, some equipped with televisions playing soothing music, movies, or the NYSE ticker. They enjoy two meals a day, playtime with dogs of similar size and temperament, and air-conditioned quarters. Feline patrons lounge in two-room suites; their litter boxes are in a separate area from sleeping quarters, which are both well ventilated.
Pet parents can also opt for extras for their pooches, such as more one-on-one time with the human staff or a nice bone to gnaw on. Certified groomers primp four-legged friends with FURminator treatments to reduce shedding and ramped bathtubs for less stressful baths. Pets and owners can even attend the pet resort's training sessions to teach basic obedience or correct behavioral problems such as anxiety or refusing to salivate when a bell rings.
Raised cots, cushy blankets, and all their toys from home. That's how Danmar Pet Resort's guests live it up during overnight stays in the facility's doggy suites.

Canines can also turn their vacations into spa retreats with services such as dog grooming, nail trimming, and exit baths, which freshens them up before the big trip home. Staff members also keep guests active with both indoor and outdoor play areas, and monitor goings-on 24 hours a day to ensure each pup has the safest stay.

In 1989, Roger and Cheryl Naumann became the proud parents of a lemon beagle they dubbed Pogo. The pup's playful demeanor was clouded by a host of congenital health conditions, each handled with unrelenting love by her owners. Pogo brought joy to Roger and Cheryl for 16 years and left her stamp on the world in the form of Pogo's Place, a pet-adoption facility in the lobby of Second Home Pet Resort.
Inspired by their beloved pooch, hotel executive Roger and his wife Cheryl, president and CEO of the Arizona Humane Society for almost six years, combined their talents to open the pet lodge.

Air-conditioning and heating systems maintain comfortable temperatures in cats' and dogs' separate quadrants and play areas. Pooches being boarded or babysat at doggie daycare frolic around an area that spans 1,000 square feet, with more than an acre of grassy knolls and playground equipment surrounded by 7-foot walls. Under supervision, they explore the Splash & Play water park's decks and waterfalls to cool off or practice their synchronized-swimming routine. Kitties scale trees and paw at scratching posts in the cat atrium. Pet cams accessible via the internet at any hour and extra care for special-needs pets give owners peace of mind, and grooming offered onsite pares down their to-do lists.
