I took my long haired Persian cat Percy to Joan''s Perfect paw pet salon and am VERY HAPPY! My cat stayed knotted up underneath and around his rear end. He would NOT let me trim him or deal with the knots. Joan and her assistant were able to do a great job and only charged me $20.00! I tipped 5.00. The only other places I could find were insisting on putting my cat to sleep ($80.00) and then the additional cost of the actual trim which they couldn't give me a price without seeing him. I would highly recommend Joan and will be back should I need her again!

Joan and her team have groomed my 8 year old schnauzer for four years in their Freeport location. My dog loves going to see "Miss Joan," they are very professional and genuinely love their canine customers! Joan is punctual and dependable. She doesn't take credit cards, so bring cash or check. She has my doggie in and out in one hour and she comes back clean, fluffy and adorable!

Does great work when she shows up for her appointments. I had 3 separate occasions I got no call or show. No call after to apologize. Bas business and VERY unprofessional. Will never use again.
Tips & Advices
Some pet groomers have viewing areas where owners can sit and watch their pets being treated. Most prevent owners from being in the same room as the pet, however, as the owner's presence might cause the pet to become too excited.
Pets that cannot interact with strangers do not make good professional grooming candidates. Sometimes medication can help, but some groomers don't take animals that have been sedated. If a pet becomes too unruly, a groomer may end the session entirely.
It's best to fully vaccinate pets before bringing them to their first grooming appointment. Dogs should receive the DA2PPC vaccine, which stands for canine distemper, canine andenovirus type 2, canine parvovirus, and parainfluenza. It's also a good idea to vaccinate dogs against Bordedatella (aka “kennel cough”). In fact, New York City requires dogs receive both DAPP and Bordetella shots. Cats, meanwhile, should get the FVRCP vaccine: feline viral rhinotracheitis, calicivirus infection, and panleukopenia. In addition, all pets should be up to date on their rabies shots. Owners should wait at least 24 hours after getting their pet vaccinated before bringing it to the groomers.
Technically, there is no such thing as a pet that is too old for a professional groomer. In fact, older pets with joint or mobility issues often can't groom themselves and need someone else to clean them. However, pets that are blind, deaf, or have serious medical issues might not do well at a groomer, especially if the person is inexperienced. Owners should feel free to ask potential groomers about their understanding of elderly pet issues. Often, older pets will exhibit puppy-like behavior and squirm or yelp during grooming. Alternatively, they might not be able to stand for long periods of time. As such, grooming an older pet usually takes more time than grooming a young one.
Puppies and kittens should be at least 10 weeks old before their first professional grooming session. They should be used to being gently handled by strangers and comfortable being separated from their owners for a few hours at a time.
