Our fur friends deserve all the love and pampering, even on our busiest days. When taking in pets, there comes the huge responsibility of making sure that they are well taken care of, at all times. An overgrown fur coat, home-alone days or a delayed vaccination dose are all valid causes for concern. Life would be so much easier for both you and your pet if you could have the experts come to your doorstep, instead.

Amazon Home Services helps you do just that with a few clicks. Their Pet Care Services connects paw parents with 12 professional providers in the UAE, from The Pet Shop to Yalla Grooming. Limited to select cities, the range of services include cat and dog grooming, pet-sitting, pet vaccination and general check-up. Some come with pick-up and drop-off options, while others are carried out at your own home.

We’ve listed out the pet services below for your convenience and whether they are available in your city. Click away to keep furry friends pleased and happy:

1. Cat Grooming

Grooming prices depend on how old your cat is, whether it’s an adult or kitten, and the type of service you choose.
