Free of crates and cages, boarded canines at Boss The Pet Connection can stroll about their climate-controlled rooms as experienced staff members freshen their water bowls, replenish bowls with healthy food, and jot down room service orders. Under the tutelage of owner Enrique Fernandez, who began his animal-training career at age 14, a skilled team of animal lovers grooms cats and dogs with haircuts and dental care, teaches basic obedience, and tends to injured pooches with hydrotherapy treatments. They can also snap pet portraits in a studio stocked with cloud backdrops, flower garlands, and architectural columns.
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.
