The Best to Care for Your Pets

Pets – dogs, cats, fish, hamsters, guinea pigs, etc. – hold a special place in our hearts.

They offer companionship, laughter, comfort, and oh so much joy! Even when there’s mischief to be had, or potty training is taking one step forward and three steps back, at the end of the day, they are our canine/feline/etc. family members.

In Iowa City, there are businesses that understand just how much your pet means to you! They are dedicated to sharing the love with your beloved family member, and through Locals Love Us, the locals of Iowa City returned the love by voting for them!

Today, we’ve curated a list of the locally loved in the pet business. Whether you’re looking for a trainer for your new puppy, or a groomer to trim your cat’s claws, you can count on these businesses, because your fellow locals do!


A happy pet is a healthy pet! Just like us humans, it’s important to make sure our pets are well taken care of. From vaccinations to check-ups, these vets will help your pet live their best life, so they can share many fun adventures with you! Here’s one of the best in town:

Who doesn’t like a treat? For our pets, this is an almost guaranteed way to get their undivided attention, and they love the challenge of learning a new trick or command to earn a tasty snack!

And let’s not forget the stylish collars, bandanas, and toys that keep them happy (and our camera rolls full of photos). We love that this Iowa City business offers a great selection:
