Biscuits & Bath
Puppyhood through Old Age – Biscuits & Bath is the place to care for your dogs. When Biscuits & Bath opened on the Upper East Side, I had an older dog. I brought her to B&B for daycare and as she got older, and was no longer able, or interested, in playing, I used their dog walking services. As she became too old to enjoy long walks, the dog walkers would come to walk her, and if she did not want to go out, they would stay in my apartment and cuddle with her. All of the B&B people were very kind and respectful to her. A great comfort, since I could not be at home with her. Some months after she passed at 16 years old, I adopted a rescue puppy. Before she was able to go out, someone from B&B would come over every day to play with her and clean up after her. As soon as she had all her shots and could socialize, she started going to B&B daycare, and I had her trained there as well. Made it very easy for me to enjoy having a puppy as anyone who has had a puppy knows, they have boundless energy and training can be very exhausting and time consuming. My girl would come home played out and well behaved. About two years later, I adopted a rescue from B&B, and went though the same scenario with her. Really made it easy and fun to have puppies, as B&B took care of the first few months at home, the training and exercising, and daycare/overnights thereafter.The convenience of vet and grooming services on site, as well as overnight care, rounds out the perfect "one stop shopping" for all of my girls needs. I really appreciate the holistic approach they have to dog care, and they pick up and deliver, so I never have to worry about taking time off from work to get them to and from appointments. I travel quite a bit and work long hours, and have always had great comfort knowing that my dogs, at every stage of their lives, and whatever their needs might be, have been able to get great care in an environment where they are happy and safe and that is familiar to them 24 hours a day. Everyone that I have come in contact with who has worked at B&B over the many years I have been a customer really seems to love dogs and they always know my dogs by name when I see them out in the street.This place is truly my dogs home away from home.

Oliver's Dog & Cat Clinic
Dr. Coronato is one of the most passionate, caring doctors I've ever met. To the person who has gone on to every single review site complaining that she only cares about money, get a life and educate yourself on the costs of owning a pet. It is not cheap to be a responsible pet owner. To keep up with vaccines, doing labwork on older pets (We caught diabetes very early in my cat by doing labwork) can be expensive. It is not the doctors' trying to pad a bill, its a necessary thing. Dr. Coronato did not become a veterinarian to make money, just read the letter posted on the wall at the York Ave clinic, a letter she wrote when she was five years old.

This vet is so friendly, you feel like they care about your pet and not about making money. They aren't trying to sell you anything you don't need, and don't try and guilt you into doing things that are unnecessary. The facility is clean and gets the job done.

Dr. Ficarra has been great whenever I needed to bring DiOGi in. She is very gentle and caring towards the animals. The office is always clean and the other staff is friendly as well.

Probably, this is the only dog grooming service that I can recommend based on two things: It costs less than others and it has quality service.

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
