DoodyCalls' team of pooper-scoopers knows caring for dogs is a full-time job. The team makes the job a little less taxing by helping out with some of the dirty work, so families have time to play with their pooches in clean yards. The same goes for feline friends. Team members visit homes weekly to clean out litter boxes, leaving them filled with fresh litter. The team can also deodorize decks and patios that have acquired unwelcome odors from pets.
Muttz Pet Goods & Gifts stores a deep vault of toys, food, and other supplies that help sustain and enhance the relationship between humans and their pet dogs, cats, birds, and fish. A member of the store's staff of animal lovers will help patrons comb through the store's selection of 35 food brands to find the right cuisine for animals with food allergies, sensitive stomachs, or french-toast intolerance. Popular canine fare includes Natural Balance's lamb-flavored dog food ($34.95) and Whole Earth Farms' prairie beef or chicken ($39.95). Keep quadripedal companions safely secured with a resilient Lupine collar ($8–$13) or foster mobile catnaps with a Snoozer pet car seat ($89).
Nervous pets are eased into exams at the attentive hands of the Indian Tree Animal Hospital staff. Beastly bodies are thoroughly scoured in a new-patient consultation, key for early detection of disease and conversion into a reptile. Regular heartworm tests help ensure the health of a pet's heart, keeping it strong enough for epic trips to the dog park and chasing marathon runners who smell like cars.
