About Paws & Pamper
Holistic Dog Grooming Spa & Boutique Specializing in Canine and Equine Massage
Equus & Paws, L.L.C. is owned and operated by Professional Groomer, Elizabeth McNeilly. Elizabeth is also a Certified Equine & Canine Massage Practitioner. Equus & Paws is a younger business, but is excited to have a business space to grow with our happy customers.
Our goal here at Equus & Paws is to make sure your pet is happy, healthy, and pampered. We want both dog and owner to walk in our shop and feel a sense of calm.
We won’t just be “another grooming experience” owner Elizabeth McNeilly says. “Animals are what I do. I love working with all animals. I find it so wonderful seeing horses and dogs relax after a good massage, or a dog sparkle and strut with his new bandana after a good bath and groom.”
We do our best at Equus & Paws to use all natural products. Go Green! We’ve handpicked all our bandanas and our shampoo and conditioners are all natural too.
We are happy and excited to be in Missoula. We’ve expanded! We are a holistic dog grooming spa & boutique. That’s what we call ourselves now! We sell all natural treats, dog food, and toys, all of which are USA made or made in Montana. All retail items can be recycled or have been already. We also specialize in equine sports and canine massage. We now offer a self service dog grooming section as well. Come pamper your pet!
