A V Pet City & Grooming
Thank you to the groomer who took care of my dog today! Apparently unknown by us, our dog was being abused at the last place we were getting him groomed.( Which by the way was Critter Country on 40th West and L). I had heard of some bad encounters at my old groomer and decided, even though I never experienced a problem, I should try someone else just to be careful. After dropping our dog off we received a call from AV Pet City stating that our dog had defecated everywhere, was absolutely terrified and was growling and trying to bite the groomers. This behavior would escalate when our dog even SAW a dog brush in the groomers hand. THIS WAS A SHOCK TO US! Our dog is super sweet and friendly!! My heart is broken that our dog went through years of abuse every few weeks and we didn't know it. We were always told everything went well at the old groomer. Obviously this could not be the case! I am so grateful that AV Pet City had a kind heart and called us and let us know how traumatic this was for our dog. Apparently it is not uncommon for unscrupulous groomers to hit dogs with brushes to get them to submit to the posititions needed for grooming. Please be careful and make sure you are taking your dog to caring groomers like these. Our dog is now ruined as far as receiving grooming by an outside agency. I wish we had a groomer like these to start with!!

Great place; friendly staff; reasonable prices. My two dogs are small chihuahua mix, and one of them is kind of unpredictable. I wasn't sure how he'd react to the groomers, but he has never had a problem there. Both dogs go in looking like abandoned wild rats and come out looking like show dogs (okay maybe that's a stretch, but they look really good and they are super excited and happy).

I think that this groomer does good work with the grooming but as a business person, she really sucks. Shes unreliable,forgetful, and can be very tacky at times too. I would never recommend her to anyone that was my friend, and we will. Ever ever call her again for a groom.����

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.
