Veterinarians at The Cat and Dog Clinic understand that cats and dogs both need their own space. The clinic started out as cats-only and continues to offer grooming and boarding services available only for felines. Cats get their own exam rooms for checkups and a playroom for free time, but that doesn’t mean dogs are treated as second-class citizens. Staff members quickly usher pooches from waiting room to exam table, where they’re greeted warmly and asked for their driver's licenses.
With spa facials, massages, and nail painting, Swanky Paws Pet Spa sounds like a retreat for owners, not their pets. But the pet CPR/First Aid–certified staff members tailor all of their services for the cats and dogs they serve. They treat furry friends to a wide range of pampering services and specialize in fine hand-scissoring for all breeds. Even the basic bath indulges critters with two washings, a deep-cleaning shampoo, a coat conditioner, and a full brush-out. Pets then revel in treatment fit for Air Bud with a breath spray and a sanitary and pad trim, and strut home sporting seasonal bows or bandanas.
In addition to grooming pets, the staff also supervises a small-dog daycare where pups under 25 pounds can romp or discuss which designer’s shoes taste best.
