A lifelong dog lover and doting owner of two labradoodles, Dan Thompson knew he didn?t want cages at his doggy daycare; he wanted his charges to play together before heading home happy and calm. So, instead of filling Dog Pawz playNstay with bars and locks, Thompson designed outdoor and indoor play areas where pooches exchange opinions on mailman fashions as they chow on natural food. Canines can spend the night, and owners of either boarding or visiting pets can visit the Dog Pawz playNstay website to log in and watch their pups on a live camera feed. The pet haven also grooms coats and trims toenails, outfits furry companions with leashes and toys, and can ferry them to and from home within a 3-mile radius, sparing pooches the need to figure out how much they should tip cab drivers.

An owner of two dogs and three cats, Dr. Cassie Cure believes in the power of preventative care to give animals a long and healthy life. This approach has earned Cedar Ridge Animal Hospital accreditation from the American Animal Hospital Association, putting it among the few veterinary practices in the area to carry this distinction. At the hospital’s full-service care facilities, Dr. Cure heals small animals with veterinarian services ranging from routine wellness care to nutrition counseling. She also performs more specialized services, such as microchipping. Beyond the veterinary clinic, the hospital spans grooming and boarding facilities, giving pets respite from their owners’ suffocating co-dependence. To give clients added piece of mind, Cedar Ridge posts online recommendations for emergency pet care.

When overcast winter skies and spring storm clouds clear, the roads begin to glisten with freshly washed cars. With 12 locations across Missouri and Kansas, there?s a pretty good chance that many of those vehicles visited a Squeaky Clean Car Wash.

At their Quick Lube locations, Squeaky Clean flushes out sludgy fluids and also invites pet owners to hose down canines and pet mammoths preserved in tar at self-serve dog washes.

The vets at Animal Medical Center have looked after the health of furry family members since 1947. Continuing this legacy, the center's current crop of medical professionals treat cats and dogs to services that range from standard checkups to vaccinations to life-saving surgeries. They also continuously look for new treatment options, such as therapeutic laser therapy, which can alleviate canines and felines of conditions such as chronic pain. Pet owners may also treat animals via a discounted health plan offered through the center.

When not dishing out medical care or filling prescriptions at the in-house or online pharmacy, Animal Medical Center's crew looks after pets with boarding and grooming services. They also assist owners in recovering lost pets by letting them display posters and all their pets' known aliases within the medical center.
