We are very excited to style each pet that comes. We do Mohawks, goatees, lion cuts, and more! These exciting styles might not be for you, but that teddy bear, stuffed animal, or long flowing look can only be achieved with help from you.
The condition of your pets coat dictates the style. Regular brushing and combing gives us more options as maintained coats can be styled in many different ways. Matted or tangled coats are damaged hair, and untangling that furthe...Read Full Post »

Be sure to get your flea medications NOW. With the mild winter, you may need to use it early if you have not used flea products all winter.
Put your dry dog food and dry cookies in the freezer for storage. Many dogs are allergic to dust mites, which are in dry foods. Freezing kills those potential allergens, as well as reduces dust, which can also bother sensitive dogs.
Yes it is odd that allergic reactions manifest in dogs more frequently as skin issues and itching th...Read Full Post »

I have a suspicion that Toasty may end up being an allergic dog. Having traveled that sad and frustrating road with a previous dog, I have started a mission to begin controlling allergies with information. Notice I said CONTROL as there is no CURE for allergies in dogs. But due to Toasty and all the other dogs we see with allergies, I am continuing the itchy dog discussion.
Allergies to food only account for about 10% of dog allergies, 1st is fleas, generally #2 is a combo of these mos...Read Full Post »

We reserve appointments for each client. When you make an appointment, time is put aside exclusively for your pet. Consequently, other clients cannot be seen at that time, and often not even on that day.
Because pets cannot read magazines and they do not understand waiting; we do not double book, we book one for Dawn and one for Lori. We choose to give individual appointments so that pets receive the best care.
If you no-show or cancel without 24 ho...Read Full Post »

Read about our rescue receptionists and our newest addition under the tab along the top. It is hard to love pets so much because it kills you when they pass, but we tried to go without a pet and could not do it. The house became a home again, our smiles returned with the addition of Toasty, from the dog pound.
We highly recommend adoption for selection of a pet, but realize this is not for everyone. Some pets have issues that need a lot of time and training, and you never kn...Read Full Post »

We love our job, but ulitmately each appointment pays our bills and a mis...Read Full Post »

Fall fleas can be the worst, as often they are resistant to some products you may be using on your pet. If your neighbors are using the same thing as you but not using it correctly, fleas will become resistant and you will see problems on your own pets.
This could indicate a need to change products for the last couple of treatments. Also we have BUG OFF which is a great repellent that you can use in addition to your flea killer to boost the protection your pet has from the nasty critter...Read Full Post »

With spring often comes allergies. Allergies in dogs are different than in people, as they exhibit as itching, tearing and licking, rather than sneezing like humans.
Be ready to ask your vet and tell your groomer at the first sign of allergies. Special shampoos will sometimes prevent making things worse as we can change shampoos if we know there is something amis. A shampoo that worked well before will often not help at all if your groomer does not know that the ...Read Full Post »
