At Huntsville Animal Clinic, a full-service medical facility, owner and veterinarian Dr. Lisa Jackson uses the latest equipment and a compassionate approach to care for family pets. Teaming up with fellow veterinarian Dr. Mary Aboko-Cole, she renders complete medical services for pooches, cats, and housebroken sasquatches. To pamper critters and keep them healthy, the doctors also offer dental care, boarding, and grooming services using a HydroSurge bath that deeply saturates fur with medicated shampoos.
When pets leave Glenn’s Animal Hospital, Dr. Glenn and his staff usually tie a bow on females' fur or strap a bow tie on the males—renewing the animals' style as well as their health and appearance. In addition to providing warm overnight care and spa services, the hospital grooms dogs and tackles issues such as heavy matting or overgrown nails from the dog's attempts to tap dance.
Snaggle Foot Dog Walks and Pet Care's owner Karen Gambrell has a long history of adopting homeless critters and pours that same sense of compassion into all of the company's services. Custom house calls keep animal companions comfortable and stress-free in a quiet and familiar environment, unlike kennels located next door to maraca factories. The team of caretakers—all trained in pet CPR and first aid—values belly rubs and squeaky-toy tossing that delight furry friends during visits. As a bonded and insured member of Pet Sitters International, Snaggle Foot enables anxiety-free vacations for pet owners and helps with routine upkeep in households.
Each dog must be vaccinated, free from parasites, and spayed or neutered if seven months of age or older. If your pooch is a certified chubby cheeker, bring a bag of food and the staff will gladly feed the dog lunch. If Fido comes home and says he had a blast at daycare, surprise him with a birthday or holiday party (not included in the cost of today's Groupon) with all of his friends.
Cahaba Beach Dog Park describes itself as "canine heaven," and it might be right. The 4-acre off-leash dog park includes tunnels, streams, trails, and open space for dogs to play with their owners or doggy pals—all of which require temperament evaluation and up-to-date vaccines to enter. There are also separate areas for different-sized dogs and an amphitheater for special events. Additionally, the park provides doggy daycare and boarding services, which include a suite decked out with a memory-foam mattress, television, and webcam, as well as a choice of spa services. Cahaba Beach Dog Park even offers grooming and training. And for your dog's special day, the park hosts dog parties, complete with custom dog cakes or dog goodie bags.
When they aren't being scrubbed or trimmed, the pups at Baths Barks and Bubbles Pet Spa romp and play together in the spa's fenced-in yard, instead of anxiously waiting confined in a cage or pet carrier. Owner Kymberly Dye and stylists Jennifer Hollis and Christy Thomas conduct doggy temperament tests with every appointment to determine whether canines would be more comfortable cavorting with the other pups or lounging in one of the spacious housing areas. The team's passion for every dog's well-being extends to their spa services, which include teeth cleanings, baths, and haircuts that leave fur as neatly trimmed as Danny DeVito's in his crowning role as Air Bud. In addition to standard grooming, they pamper furry companions with creative grooming, safely complementing coats with vibrant colors and stripes.
