Did you know that more than half of all households have at least one pet? Chances are yours is one of them, which is why we have included two great providers in our directory that you can count on for a wide range of pet services.

If you live in the South DadeAventura or Coral Springs areas, you'll want to know about Pet Medical Centers. Their centers offer state-of-the-art boarding facilities, with full service pet hospital in the same facility. So if you are going away and need to board your pet, you can get all the medical and dental check-ups that you struggle to find the time for, all handled at one time.

Pet Medical Centers also offers a "new puppy" package of services to make pet ownership easy and joyful. The package includes vaccines, flea and heart worms medications, nutritional counseling and all the Health and Wellness appointments necessary for puppies to thrive.

 Maryl and Felice at Pet Sitters and More (photo left) provide every service imaginable to keep your pet and home safe when you're away-- even if it's just for a few hours or while you're at work.  In fact, each time they visit your pet (and that includes birds, cats and reptiles!) they'll go through a check list of 25 items including:

  • Sanitizing to reduce illness & disease.
  • Bringing in your mail and newspaper
  • Feeding your pet
  • Walking your pet 
  • Cleaning up accidents or "messes" that may occur
  • Turning on lights, making sure home is secure
  • Playtime with pets.
  • Administer medications when needed 
  • Taking the pet to veterinarian if necessary

If you live in Northern Miami-Dade  (Sunny Isles, Golden Beach or Aventura) or Broward Counties you're in their service area, so visit their website or click here to view their listing and contact information.
