The Cat Doctor
I cannot say enough about The Cat Doctor. Dr. Christensen and her staff are so compassionate and kind and professional. There is nothing quite like taking your cat to a place that specializes in feline care. There are no dogs to encounter and frighten, and there are people there who will love up on your kitty, talk to your kitty to make him or her as comfortable as possible. Everyone who is there truly loves felines and understands them. I am fairly certain that every staff person is a cat owner, too. I have been a customer pretty much since the start back in 1998. I needed help with my 18 month old cat Oscar who was diagnosed with Diabetes. My previous vet was not supportive of home glucose monitoring and we were having trouble getting Oscar regulated with Insulin. I found Dr Christensen through the Feline Diabetes online forum. She was a Godsend back then. She more than supported home glucose monitoring and had the knowledge and experience with the tricky disease known as Feline Diabetes. Oscar was regulated quickly and lived to be 11 years old and never once had a complication from it. I gave him Insulin twice daily and used PZI -- the Insulin with the best results in cats that I was able to obtain with Dr. C's help. My kitty that I have now -- Feliz who is 16 years old -- has had medical problems too. She is hyperthyroid and it took awhile to get that straightened out. Dr. C has brought her back from the brink of death twice. Once with pancreatitis, and most recently last December with a serious infection and kidney failure. When I brought her in for that, I was a wreck. I didn't know what I should do. Faced with lots of tests, treatment and hospitalization and all of the associated costs I was unsure what to do. I loved my then 15 1/2 year old cat but I had to be realistic. Dr C completely understood how hard this was on me. She recommended a few days of treatment in the hospital ward to try to get the infection under control and then re-evaluate. That was exactly what I needed and turned out to be EXACTLY what Feliz needed. She turned around and is doing well today. Dr. C's experience was invaluable then and is still invaluable today. I cannot imagine taking my cat any place else. P.S. I have read some negative reviews here and all I can say is that I have never had anything remotely close to what these people have experienced in all the years I have been a client. I've even used their boarding services many, many times and have loved it. In response to tosa58 below... Cat Doctor is very very busy. If you had not seen her for 14 years I can understand why she had to say no to you. She has precious few emergency slots open and to be fair she has to reserve them for her current clients whose cats she knows because they are getting routine care with her. This is just like a human doctor. It is unlikely that if a person didn't see their doc for 14 years and called and wanted to be squeezed in that they would say yes. They need to reserve squeeze in appts for current patients. I am very sorry your pet had to be euthanized. That is always a devastating decision to make. I'm just sad that you felt the need to review her this way when she was trying to be fair to her current client base.

Brandi, I believe you came in wanting your dog groomed at the end of the day. Grooming at my shop does take 4 hours (sometimes less) because I let the dogs socialize and get acclimated to there surroundings before grooming them. I find that the dogs are more comfortable this way. You asked for pricing and then compared my costs and time needed to another grooming facility. All my quotes are starting prices, they can go up or down depending hair type and condition and temperament. You were the one that had gotten upset because I wouldn't help you out right away. It is my policy to not take grooming walk ins because I always require vaccination info and most people don't carry that on them. You never ONCE asked for nails only. I am not a racist, I have clients of all races. No one has complained yet.

Tender Touch Grooming Inc
I love Tender Touch Grooming! In fact, I take my puppy there to be groomed and I don't think my dog ever smelled nor looked so good! The best part was... the clean smell lasted for weeks! I highly recommend this place for grooming. I love the employees and the owner as well. :-) She is a wonderful lady and good friend of mine. I don't know what all these negative reviews are for but I sure had a good vibe when I go there. There friendly staff, clean shop, smells good and your dog comes out looking and feeling good. And that's all that matters :) Tender touch is the way to go!

VIP service, they understand cats. I was attended fast, and they credit the parking meter, they had a plug in that made my Agatha feel relaxed. They gave follow up calls to ask about my Agatha. I'm glad I found The Cat Dr., specially because I just moved back home after living in PR. Cats are hard to understand and to know I have them available is a relief in our getting settled in ....... I highly recommend

Happy Paws Grooming And Daycare
I just picked up my grandpuppy, Rambo, from his 3 day stay. He was happy and clean. This place is amazing! It is so clean and the dogs have plenty of room in their kennels with a super cool playground outside that I wanted to play on. I highly recommend them for any of your dog day care needs. The owners love what they do and it shows.

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.
