Over the next few minutes you will be reading a full breakdown of the local Zurich pet scene. Whether you are a current owner or trying to find a new special friend there should be plenty of info here to help you figure out your next move.
Our opening section will be all about the best Zurich pet stores. We figure since they are a good place to buy puppies, kittens, toys, food, and supplies they will probably be the most popular section of this post.
Dog or cat adoption at the best animal shelters in your area will be up next. With so much overpopulation the adoption route is the choice of many these days.
The dog lovers will get the most from our next few sections which are about dog parks, puppy trainers, and dog bakeries. Then we will jump into grooming and dog or cat cafes around the city. Hotels that allow pets to check in near you will also get their own section for any new visitors to the area.
You will also learn about the best places for local pet boarding if you are traveling out of town yourself. At the end we will get into some unfortunate topics like veterinarians and dog or cat cremation.
You will even find a map to help you figure out which places are closest to your current area. To look through some of our other guides for more cities around Europe click that link.
