Completed in 2002, Miami Animal Hospital is a 4000 square foot, state-of-the-art facility, equipped with the most advanced technology to provide your pet with the best veterinary care. We are open Monday to Friday 8:00 am to 6:00 pm and Saturdays 9:00 am to 2:00 pm.
Designed in the tradition of the European open-air marketplace, The Fresh Market is a premium food seller on Bayshore Drive in Miami. Here, customers will find organic and gourmet goodies to please even the strictest of foodies, with meat and fish requests cut to order – none of the pre-packaged stuff here. Butchers and fishmongers are even on hand to provide pairing suggestions or make cooking recommendations, and a wide selection of freshly-baked breads can round out any home-cooked meal. With locations throughout Miami and beyond, this vaulted warehouse-like space also offers wines, prepared dishes and an olive bar for anyone needing a quick bite. Long, wide and deep with only the best merchandise, the Fresh Market is a fantastic Coconut Grove alternative to larger, less healthful chain grocery stores.
Trail Animal Hospital's luxurious facilities cater to pets' excitable whims with veterinary vacations that provide exercise, play, and pampering spa services. Tempered glass fronts keep doggy suites well-lit and airy, and three-story cat condos keep curious kitties entertained with a high-rise view of the facility's electronic fish tank and hourly dolphin shows. Bowlfuls of each animal's favorite food arrive twice daily, served precisely according to the owner's instructions, and a dedicated walker spins four-legged pals ’round the block at least three times a day. The dulcet tones of slow-moving music relax animal eardrums as furry friends settle into their raised beds or plush piles of blankets for an evening's rest, where midnight snacking urges are smartly satisfied with a Kong-like toy. Climate controls regulate temperature throughout the entire facility, protecting dogs and cats from summer heat and keeping them warm all through Miami’s blizzard season.
The dog groomers at Pet Avenue bathe and board pups of all sizes and breeds, performing services that range from basic grooming and teeth cleaning to de-shedding and administering medicated flea baths. Using all-natural shampoos, including a blueberry-facial tearless variety, the groomers bathe dogs after cleaning out ears, squeezing glands, trimming nails, then finish them off with a spritz of cologne. They can groom all boarded animals before sending them home. Owners can also pick out an adorable pet outfit from Pet Avenue?s boutique, perfect for gussying up pooches for holiday gatherings or their own retirement parties.
Under the umbrella of Pet Medical Centers, nine Miami-Dade and Broward-area veterinary hospitals provide sophisticated healthcare for furry, feathered, and scaly family members. The hospitals’ specialty services include nonanesthetic dental care, ultrasounds, radiology, and endoscopies. All locations boast surgical operating rooms equipped with windows and cameras to give owners peace of mind, and many of the clinics are equipped with lasers for blade-free incisions. Besides emergency care, the doctors and technicians—some of whom have appeared as specialists on Univision and Animal Planet—perform general wellness examinations and informative nutritional consultations.
Although medical care provides what pets need, boarding services treat pets to what they want. Most locations double as cat and dog hotels, but only one deserves the title of pet resort—at Coral Springs Pet Resort and Medical Center, animals enjoy a climate-controlled dog park with a pool, baths with massaging jets, and expansive canine suites with window views.
At the modern and environmentally friendly Petit Spa, highly trained aestheticians and med-spa experts work to improve dry, oily, and acne-prone skin during chemical peels, microdermabrasion treatments, and specialty facials. They use the hypoallergenic Babor skincare line from Germany and the botanical-laden Aquaroma line when tending to mugs, and they use an organic spray-tan solution with green-tea extract and anti-oxidants to bronze limbs.
To further rejuvenate bodies, they rely on toxin-flushing hydrotherapy treatments and tension-melting massages in Swedish, aromatherapy, or deep-tissue modalities. They even have a localized deep-tissue massage, which concentrates exclusively on the neck, back, and shoulders, leaving clients as stress-free as Christmas shopping in April.
