Fuzzy Pants Pet Stop Fuzzy Pants Pet Stop and Day Spa is as passionate about animals as you are so we'll treat yours as if they were our own.

A lot of the more widely sold pet foods are loaded with grains and other fillers, which can cause dry, itchy skin, a number of digestive problems, laziness, ear infections and more. By switching to a better diet you can eliminate a lot (if not all) of these conditions and your pets can live longer, healthier, happier and more fulfilling lives. We offer so much more than food, treats and supplies for all of your fuzzy companions. Our Day Spa offers bathing, grooming, massage, socialization, doggie "tattoos" and more. Fuzzy Pants also offers full or half-day Doggie Day Care. See Details
