From boarding and daycare to checkups and surgery, the services at Chesterfield Veterinary Center have pets covered. Two doctors and a small staff work to keep dogs and cats happy and healthy. They care for animals six days a week and showcase philanthropic values as well: when the team unexpectedly and tragically lost an employee, they established a foundation in his name that benefits animal charities.

During their stays at Nancy Crane’s Family Pet Care, dogs and cats alike play and lounge under the doting eyes of the animal-loving staff. In the dog kennel, pups sprawl out on heated floors when it's chilly or let their floppy ears waggle in the breeze from central air conditioning on hot days. Outside their doggy doors, hounds can take in the fresh air on daily indoor and outdoor runs.

In the separate cat area far away from disdainful pooches, kitties in most units peer out their windows in search of songbirds, squirrels, neighborhood children, and other natural prey.

The facility's staff is on hand 24 hours a day, to ensure that help is always nearby in case your pup has that recurring dream about eating a gigantic bone. For dogs, the caregivers also dole out some optional pet-pampering services, including outdoor playtime, grooming, and treats of peanut-butter-filled bones and ice-cream cones.

Silver Maple Farm's two-acre estate teems with furry friends on loan from owners. In two-hour play sessions at doggie daycare, pooches stretch their legs, breathe fresh air, and make new friends by checking other dogs' tail areas for trading cards ($28.50/day, $21.50/half-day). The facility is open from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. each weekday so that Fidos can socialize while their human servants are off earning money and buying kibble.

The canine caretakers at BauserHaus keep watch over their guests throughout a 7,000-square-foot facility. Organized by size, dogs spend all day trotting about indoor and outdoor play areas. Come nighttime, boarding dogs snooze in private 5'x5' pens furnished with beds and, like the homes of football stars, astroturf carpeting.

Wolfgang's Pet Stop cossets furry friends with an array of grooming services for pooches and kitties. Trim a four-legged friend's fringe with a bath and brush ($25+) or a bath and hand-scissored cut ($40+)⎯a hand-styled coat cut tailored to a specific breed's show standards, the overall length of the entire coat, or trimmed to resemble your favorite president.
