Just as human doctors do with their patients, Dr. Shane and her associates explore all avenues of medical treatment for nurturing their animal patients' health. Her skills in small animal treatments practiced at Kansas State University College of Veterinary Medicine equip her to brandish modern techniques and systems for spaying, soft tissue surgery, and dentistry. Additionally, through the Chi Institute in Gainesville, Florida, she learned the art of veterinary acupuncture and Chinese veterinary medicine, endowing her with herbal and alternative techniques for wellness and pet therapies. To ensure her furry patients receive the best care possible, she merges the two disciplines into a comprehensive treatment plan that keeps pets happy, healthy, and ready to take yoga classes with their owners.
Founded in 2007 by certified master dog trainer Jaime Van Wye, Zoom Room fosters relationships between dogs and their owners through obedience and agility classes. Obstacles such as hurdles, hoops, and ramps populate the interactive indoor facility, helping energetic pups burn off steam, gain focus, and get in shape for roles summer stock productions of Homeward Bound. In addition to basic obedience courses, specialty classes for shy or overly rambunctious dogs build confidence through positive reinforcement and a controlled class environment. Dogs seeking less structured outings often romp through half-hour blocks of private gym time, working through the agility course at their own pace.
Tish believes in taking her work home with her. When she’s not running Walk 'n' Roll Pet Sitting, she stays busy volunteering at pet foster centers, coordinating the LA Chapter of the National Canine Cancer Foundation, and tending to her own three rescue dogs: a labrador named Maddie, an English bulldog named Stella, and a pug named DaVinci. Her love and knowledge of pets also applies to Walk 'n' Roll Pet Sitting’s staff. She handpicks everyone on her team, each a pet owner who passed a thorough background check and completed extensive training. With their daycare, cage-free boarding, and in-home pet-sitting services, the staff treats each pooch as part of their family by recognizing individual personality traits and calling them on Thanksgiving to argue. They also exercise canines during private dog walks and offer additional services such as baths, vet visits, and administering medications.
Blending ancient Taoist principles of inner balance with cutting-edge diagnostic, medical, and surgical care, Dr. Annie M. Harvilicz and her team at Animal Wellness Centers cater to pawed companions with holistic care and genuine compassion. When Scruffy gets eerily aligned with his moniker, let him test the uber-cleansing waters of the Best Bath Ever, which includes a gently soothing shampoo, conditioning treatment, hand drying, and regal upkeep tips from the Fancy Feast cat ($30–$70 depending on pet weight). A la carte nail clipping ($16), ear cleaning ($16), and anal-gland expression ($22.50) refresh doghouse dwellers between baths, and canine and kitten insides can get equally spruced with Dr. Annie's own product line of vitamins and other supportive supplements. The center also opens its doors for babysitter-defiant felines and house-party-prone pups with luxury cat boarding ($35/day) and doggy daycare ($40/day), where all fellow overnighters are guaranteed to be vaccinated and free of Milk-Bone–shaped lock picks. Checkups, spays and neuters, behavior classes, and more can also be scooped up with this deal.
