The veterinarians and veterinary techs at Texas Coalition for Animal Protection are local pets’ allies. With services that cover neutering, spaying, dental hygiene, and vaccinations, they promote fur-covered family members’ good health and wellbeing. And the professional team of caregivers makes it easy to get pets healthy by offering most preventive medical work all in one place.
The loving staff at Lucca Bella Doggie Spa and Boutique treats each and every dog like a four-legged family member, pampering them with spa-like grooming services and providing a home away from home in their climate-controlled daycare rooms. While leaving the house is undeniably exciting for a dog, Lucca Bella fosters a calm and peaceful spa experience by using all-natural grooming products, hand-drying manes instead of using noisy blow-dryers, and keeping antagonistic squirrels out of sight. For puppy facials and baths, the canine caretakers go at a speed the dog is comfortable with to avoid unnecessary stress.
During daycare sessions, owners gain peace of mind knowing their canine companion is making new friends in Lucca Bella's indoor, climate-controlled play area and outdoor sunbathing spot.
At Barney's Ranch, pups congregate in an 8,000-square-foot outdoor yard to chew toys and play under the supervision of loving staff. Throughout the day, dogs splash in small pools and get in shape the same way Lassie used to exercise: by rescuing each other from wells. At night, boarders settle into cageless corrals, where gentle music soothes them to sleep. Owners can monitor their pets from a distance by logging into the webcams that Barney's has set up in each of the ranch's four areas.
As the head of Carrollton Animal Hospital, Dr. Michael W. McGuire has come full circle since the high school days he spent volunteering at a veterinary clinic. His lifelong passion for animals makes him an ideal custodian of the clinic, which has served the community for a staggering 40 years. Despite its long history, the clinic boasts fully modern facilities including surgical suites, onsite blood analyzers, and a fully stocked pharmacy. Dr. McGuire uses his more than 15 years to oversee the tightly knit team of veterinary assistants and animal lovers who help him attend to dogs, cats, rabbits, and small exotic pets. The clinic offers routine animal care including checkups and dentistry, as well as surgery and preventative care—including vaccinations to protect against parasites, rabies, and ticks disguised as squeaky toys. To keep owners and pets together, the staff also performs microchipping services that can help locate pets should they go missing. Those in need of kennel services can let Fido run free in the grassy greenery of the clinic's outdoor play area and retreat at night to the indoor boarding kennel.
