The Rock n Country Veterinary Services team is captained by Dr. Jennifer Hatcher and Dr. John Laster—both animal lovers, farmers, and seasoned veterinarians. The professionals welcome animals of all shapes and sizes into their clinic, where they perform an array of veterinary services, from basic exams to emergency surgeries. The doctors and their crew travel to farms across town, treating curly tailed pigs to manicures, checking up on clucking chickens, and feeding medicine to stubborn llamas.

The Paw Pad Grooming showers pets with both warm water and affection during its myriad fur-styling services. The staff creates a serene environment for its four-legged guests by treating one dog at a time, scrubbing down pelts and snipping new 'dos while they put pooches at ease. They use eco-friendly products to gussy up coats, and offer complimentary nail trims or mani-pedis in the colors of the client's favorite Iditarod team. For pups in need of special sessions, medicated shampoo, de-skunking baths, and aloe treatments can alleviate skin stressors. The staff emphasizes that their job is just as much about health as it is about looking chic on walks—grooming can result in sleeker pelts and a reduced likelihood of ailments such as fleas or dandruff.
The grooming salon is also a playpen for well-socialized dogs, who can cavort in the daycare area while they wait for their owners to pick them up. Appointments range between one hour and four hours, and employees can both retrieve and drop-off their canine patrons for additional fees.:m]]
