Drawing on half a century of automotive service, Midas helps drivers to prolong vehicle vigour with factory-recommended maintenance services. Mechanics pop car hoods to perform oil changes with standard and temperature-durable synthetic solutions, taking time to inspect belts, hoses, fluids, and the air conditioner's resident penguin. Armed with efficient catalytic converters built to U.S. EPA standards, the staff helps to shrink harmful emissions during muffler and exhaust-system checks. Trained technicians augment brake services with lifetime guarantees and curate healthy, evenly worn tires with rotations or replacements from Goodyear, Michelin, Firestone, and Bridgestone.
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.
The expert veterinarians at Westminster Veterinary Group care for cats, dogs, and exotic pets with diagnostic checkups, surgical procedures, and diet planning designed to keep all animals healthy at all stages of life.

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.
