This is the owner of the business. We are sorry for the loss of the poodle mentioned in the previous post. But I'd like to clear up the false allegations by this young lady who was not here to know what happened. First off, our air cconditioner functions perfectly. We pay close attention to the temperature in our business at all times to ensure that all of our visitors are comfortable and safe. We also have fans that constantly circulate the air. The well-being of our clients is our number 1 priority. If we notice ANY changes in behavior that would cause concern, the pet's owner is IMMEDIATELY contacted. This particular dog began to cough and wheeze not long after her arrival. Her owner was called IMMEDIATELY and described her behavior. We were told not to worry about it because she does that everyday. She said she has hernias and they make it hard for her to breathe correctly. She wanted her dog finished so we told her to come pick her up in 30 mins. The dog was alert and calm for the rest of her groom. We put her down to wait for her owner. The dog was still alert and happy when the owner pulled into our driveway. But before she walked into the shop, the dog passed. After everyone calmed down, we advised her to take the dog to get an autopsy. I called her vet myself and told them the business would pay for the autopsy, we just wanted an answer so there could be SOME kind of closure instead of the worry and questions. Unfortunately, when you have a senior dog (14 yrs.old) who is also very overweight, there are health issues that need to be considered. Congestive heart failure, diabetes, respiratory failure....these are ALL symptoms of being an overweight senior. The excitement of a NORMAL grooming routine can be stressful for a senior dog, especially if they have existing medical conditions like the ones I stated above. We, at Pawzitive Perfection, strive daily to provide a safe and comfortable environment for ALL of our furry clients. We send our condolences to the family for the loss of such a sweet little angel.

Arkansans For Animals
Took my dog here to be neutered after being recommended that we go there. We warned them our animal is high strung and would need special attention. When going to pick him up, he was going crazy and had blood all over his abdomen after having ripped his own stitches out. They kept him overnight with no known nightly care and told us he would be fed and walked the next morning. Upon arrival, he was out of his mind trying to get out and I was notified that he was not fed, given water, or walked because they had given up on him and decided it wasn't worth fighting. The vet was very kind but some of the women working there are extremely unprofessional and continuously insulted my dog, claiming they felt sorry for me that I had to deal with him. I will never take any of my pets to this clinic ever again.

Briarwood Animal Hospital
I had just moved to Little Rock and my beloved best friend, my Saint Bernard named Kansas, was very sick. I figured she had pyometra. She's 10 years old, so I knew it was imperative to have a good vet because that's an older age for a Saint. I looked everywhere on the Internet for vets reading every review I could. The review that swayed me to choose Dr. Ashley at Briarwood is the one here written by tw2crc. Her words told me I'd be in the best hands possible. It was such a hard decision to make to go through with surgery and I cried, but Dr. Ashley saved my dog's life! Kansas is so healthy and looks so good! I am so proud and happy that I made the decision to choose Briarwood and I want to thank the staff and Dr. Ashley so much.

We went to Pawzitive Perfection for the first time last week and I must say, my pups haircut was the best he's ever had! We've taken him to several other places in the area and NO ONE has EVER been able to make him look this good. They were very thorough when asking how I wanted him to look and did exactly everything they said they would. And he was happy! He usually comes home from the groomer shaking and tired, sometimes until the next day. When I picked him up from here, he didn't even want to walk out with me! He was prancing and wagging his tail and was obviously very relaxed and comfortable with the employees. I will definitely be telling everyone I know to go see what REAL service is like!

The staff here is very nice and professional. I've only been a couple of times and I loved it. The only negative thing that I have to say is that they are very expensive. I chose this clinic because I needed a vet ASAP and all the other clinics were full, now I see why. If you are new to the area or a first time pet owner call around because there are other places with the same amount of love and care, but you don't have to pay as much for your shots. Do your research.

These girls will treat your dog like it belongs to them. They are very knowledgeable about grooming and your dog's health and well being. My dogs always go in this salon wagging their tails and happy like it's their second home. And when I pick them up, they're just as happy but a whole lot prettier. And I don't know what kind of shampoo they use, but it smells amazing! I've been to other groomers and my dogs and I have never been happier than we are here.

Otter Creek Animal Hospital
I adore Dr. Miller - he doesn't try to charge unnecessary charges, and he's the one of the very few left of the " wonderful older school" type veterinarians who make it seem that they truly care about pets versus trying to get you to buy this expensive food or tests that aren't necessary based on animal's age or other qualities. One of the up front staff members comes across slightly brash which is the only reason that I wouldn't give it a 5th star.

Hillcrest Animal Hospital
I've been going to Hillcrest Animal Hospital for over 25 years and wouldn't consider going anywhere else. (I live in west Little Rock and still drive to Hillcrest…that's how good they are!) They have the best vets and Dr. Larry Nafe is one of the most talented surgeons in the world. And when it's time to make the difficult decisions, they are compassionate and patient, while providing the information you need to make those decisions.

Great drs but staff is very rude especially the front desk clerk Candy. She's very unprofessional and made so many mistakes on my records that I never could get straightened out so I left. I wish I could give 5 stars for the groomer Chrissy bc she's the Best!!! But I can't since she's connected to vet. I would go back to her if she was out on her own. She's awesome! They need someone at front desk with better bedside manners tho.

Of course, they have my boys Spoiled Rotten. That's why I Highly & Proudly Recommend this Business to All of Little Rock !!!!
Tips & Advices
Most 24-hour clinics do not allow owners to stay with their pets overnight. However, many do have specific visiting hours or will let owners see their pets at any point during the day. In addition, owners can call most clinics at any time for an update on their pet's well being.
  • Important phone numbers, especially those of the the veterinary clinic, the animal hospital or emergency clinic, and the poison control center
  • A book detailing pet first-aid steps
  • Copy of medical records
  • Nylon leash
  • Muzzle (only use if pet is not vomiting and has no difficulty breathing)
  • Absorbent gauze
  • Nonlatex disposable gloves
  • Scissors
  • Tweezers
  • Nail clippers
  • Digital thermometer
  • Sterile saline solution
  • Hydrogen peroxide (to induce vomiting only at the recommendation of a veterinarian
  • Milk of magnesia (to absorb poison only at the recommendation of a veterinarian)
Find a 24-hour animal hospital that provides emergency services within your area. Keep the facility's contact information in a place that's easy to locate, such as the refrigerator, address book, or smartphone. Most veterinary clinics operate on standard business hours and are not equipped to handle emergencies.
Veterinary clinics operate on a smaller scale than animal hospitals. The latter are more likely open 24 hours and provide emergency services. The former generally operate on typical office hours and only perform wellness exams and minor surgeries. Veterinary clinics also do not generally perform laboratory tests on site.
The specifics vary depending on the type of visit. For a wellness exam, bring:
  • Medical records
  • The type or brand of food the pet eats
  • Medication (including flea, tick, and heartworm medication).
If the animal needs medical treatment, the following may be helpful depending on the situation:
  • Fresh stool sample
  • Vomit sample
  • Video of the pet engaging in abnormal behavior
  • Substance the pet may have ingested
