Even pets that brush their teeth twice daily are prone to health issues—that’s where Friendship Pet Hospital and Wellness Center steps in. The caring staff at this AAHA-certified clinic helps keep furry companions in peak physical shape with comprehensive checkups. Veterinarians inspect teeth to root out dental disease and administer vaccinations to prevent common maladies in cats and dogs. A focus on breed-specific healthcare helps vets stay aware of which ailments most commonly afflict which pets, saving the trouble of testing Sphynx cats for hair loss. As pets visit with the doctors, complimentary cookies and beverages keep owners satiated.
The experts at Hollywoof Pet Styles renovate canines with a full array of grooming services that leave coats shining and nails neatly trimmed. The dog stylists snip and shave fur, trim and paint pawtips with polish, and thoroughly clean ears to ensure pets can easily understand their owners' bedtime readings of The Hound of the Baskervilles. De-skunking services are also available to erase the aftermath of odoriferous encounters. After grooming, bandanas or bows ready barkers for trips to the dog park or a session with Hollywoof’s photographers. The shutter-clicking professionals snap photos of pooches styled for Hollywood- and fiesta-themed shoots, aiming their lenses to capture the most flattering angles.
All the staff members at Benson and Maggie's Pet Sitting are pet owners themselves, so they know that animals need both competent care and affection. Since 2008, they've provided both to clients' dogs, cats, and other pets.

They also handle house-sitting tasks such as pool care, plant care, and collecting newspapers and mail.
The Doggie sPaw's professional groomers pretty up the coats and paws of man's best friends with high-quality products, helping them prance back into the world looking sharp without need for the gowns and tuxes they wear to playdates.

When dealing with a timid and fearful dog, Eric Juarez, owner of Paw-riffic Cuts Pet Salon, has a wealth of advice. The first thing a person should do is let the pup take the lead. "Crouch down, extend your hand, but wait [as long as you have to] until the dog approaches you." Armed with a wealth of dog-related knowledge, Eric and his partner strive to provide expert grooming at affordable prices. Eric has years of experience tending to various breeds of dogs, as well as cultivating relationships with their owners. The staff uses biodegradable products when bathing dogs, selecting the correct product depending on coat color and texture. A line of imitation-designer scents keeps pooches smelling fresh, even if they've been sprayed by a skunk or played fetch with a Pacific bluefin tuna.
Canines relax in raised sinks while their owners soap them up with shampoo and conditioner and spray them down with warm water. The pampering also includes one or two nail trims to keep dogs from scratching up the kitchen next time they make themselves dinner. Towels, shampoo, and conditioner are provided free of charge.
