San Franciscans spoil their pets horribly. Handmade clothing, special food, and excellent health care are practically the norm. We do it our own way, of course this is no L.A. full of rich ladies clutching toy poodles. Mission District denizens, for example, are as likely to lavish a mutt with goodies as a show dog, and both pet and friend might be dressed in spiked leather. The perfect match for this style is Mission Pet Hospital, whose dreadlocked surgeons are some of the best in the city. Staffers ask about "clients" by name even if they're not in the building, and tend to recognize animals a tad quicker than humans. The pet boarding service is also top-notch; even cats won't be angry when you come back from your trip.
