As the head of Carrollton Animal Hospital, Dr. Michael W. McGuire has come full circle since the high school days he spent volunteering at a veterinary clinic. His lifelong passion for animals makes him an ideal custodian of the clinic, which has served the community for a staggering 40 years. Despite its long history, the clinic boasts fully modern facilities including surgical suites, onsite blood analyzers, and a fully stocked pharmacy. Dr. McGuire uses his more than 15 years to oversee the tightly knit team of veterinary assistants and animal lovers who help him attend to dogs, cats, rabbits, and small exotic pets. The clinic offers routine animal care including checkups and dentistry, as well as surgery and preventative care—including vaccinations to protect against parasites, rabies, and ticks disguised as squeaky toys. To keep owners and pets together, the staff also performs microchipping services that can help locate pets should they go missing. Those in need of kennel services can let Fido run free in the grassy greenery of the clinic's outdoor play area and retreat at night to the indoor boarding kennel.
At Barney's Ranch, pups congregate in an 8,000-square-foot outdoor yard to chew toys and play under the supervision of loving staff. Throughout the day, dogs splash in small pools and get in shape the same way Lassie used to exercise: by rescuing each other from wells. At night, boarders settle into cageless corrals, where gentle music soothes them to sleep. Owners can monitor their pets from a distance by logging into the webcams that Barney's has set up in each of the ranch's four areas.
Once per week, Pooper Troopers USA's professional squad of lawn tidiers descends upon each yard uniformed and ready to quickly and thoroughly rid it of dog waste. Besides prepping property for outdoor barbecues and other group events, the service promotes a healthy yard that can finally move on from diapers. Should owners be away at the time, a team member can lock up before departing and drop off a notification that the yard has been closely looked over. To ensure proper waste removal, Pooper Troopers USA asks that customers keep grass and leaves properly maintained and dogs put the seat down prior to their arrival.
