These days, our pets seem to have it all -- designer collars, organic food, and four-star retreats that cater to their every whim. If only their owners had it this good. Sure, you could probably do without the liver-flavored Nylabones, but in a world of perfunctory HMO healthcare, who wouldn't benefit from the kind of thorough medical care provided by Creature Comforts? Vets here strive to achieve a thorough understanding of your pet's condition and offer suggestions based on a healthy combination of both alternative and traditional medicine. Although they often prescribe acupuncture, herbs, and homeopathy, the four staff doctors are licensed vets, never shy about prescribing Western medicines or surgery when they're needed. Employees are exceedingly friendly and will regularly call to check up on recovering pets once they've gone home, no matter how minor the problem. Now, wouldn't that be nice the next time you're feeling ill? And, so you don't miss another morning at work, they'll even let you order prescription refills over the phone. Of course, given the high-quality service, you'll pay a bit more. But to your pet, it's certainly worth more than a carload of tasty gourmet treats.
