Angelenos are picky about their pet stores. Not any place will do when you're searching for that specific type of grain-free kibble, or those unscented paw wipes, or that natural-fiber chew toy. To make things easy for all the new owners out there, we searched the city for the best places to take care of your furry charges. These highly-rated shops, from a pet-friendly bakery to a natural foods center, should fit the bill. As always, if we've missed your favorite, let us know in the comments below.—Stephanie Chan
