Hannah The Pet Society
I had my dog, Savannah, over to Hannah to have a removal of a very large, cancerous tumor, growing on one of her teats. The thing was the size of a golf ball and hung very low. She has had a few surgeries for similar surgeries at another vet service and she was left with some pretty rude scars. they were so obvious that sometimes I took to calling her, "Franken-pooch." It is only now that she has the tumor removed at Hannah that I see how much better the old ones could have been done. She healed so cleanly that it is hard to tell where the surgery had been, and it is only a month later. In addition, the old tumors had returned and, while she was under, the veterinarian went ahead and removed them too. It is a month later and those too have healed very smoothly. I am stunned by the difference ! I also have to talk about the service at Hannah. Never have I been informed so thoroughly to be prepped for what was going to be done. There were nurses and a receptionist that made me feel like family and not just one more source of revenue. I love this place ! Also, Savannah was treated and fussed over. She was so happy when she came out of the surgery a day later and, while she knows to take medication afterward, she refused it this time and one day after coming home she was out in the yard,, playing with her buddy as if nothing had happened. I can't recommend Hannah enough. They are in a class by themselves. By the way, I also had my dog, Moose, join and a nice tumor removal was done on him too.

Cat-N-Doggie Do's
I brought my pet there for grooming I was greeted by an older gentleman that was very nice he went to the back to get the groomer for me to explain how I wanted my dog groomed this time and she was vey rude. She also smelled of alcohol. There was another older lady grooming she looked horrified at the was she was talking to me. This wasn't the first time she look like she was still drunk. I almost asked for my dog back when I noticed she handed her to the other lady. I pick-up my dog she was groomed better than she had been in the past. I think it's time that the owners think about getting rid of her. I won't leave my pet with her ever again, unless the other lady is there. P

Cheryl's Canine Styling
The building has been going through lots of renovations, and is looking nicer each season! It s the cleanest dog facility I ve ever been to! It s been Cheryl and Kim for at least six years now, so you always know who you re talking to and who is handling your dog. They have the best attention to detail and care for animals! They have lots of dogs at home, too, so they know how it feels to want the best for our pets. They re very friendly and accommodating, working with difficult and disabled dogs. Dogs come in happy and leave happy! Cheryl is an honest professional and never disappoints!

I'd been in the market for a great pet insurance plan but everything I found only covered vaccines and a few other preventative items. A friend referred me to Hannah and I was blown away. With Hannah's plan, I pay just a little bit more per month, but the service I receive is so much more comprehensive that I end up saving several bucks a month as a result! On Hannah's plan, I get all of my food delivered to my door, a lifetime of training, both one-on-one and in classes, and 100% of my vet care! Highly recommended!

Townhouse Pet Care Center
I've used Townhouse for boarding and grooming for 20+ years and have been very pleased and satisfied with Stacy and her crew. They have acted professionally and very caring with my pets. One of my current dogs is a rescue who has had issues dealing with people and he gets very excited when he goes in to be groomed or boarded. In the past, I have had aging dogs with medical problems which have been treated with care and passion. This facility and staff are great!

My dog, Chloe is a high-energy dog who occasionally suffers from anxiety. We signed her up for Hannah’s TLC program and after a few training classes and consultations with their behaviorist, Chloe has become so much easier to deal with. Included in the TLC is all of Chloe’s vet care AND her food. Couldn’t ask for a better healthcare plan!

There are so many pet insurance options out there, I was having a hard time choosing. Hannah is more than insurance. They don’t just cover the basics and then leave the big bills up to the pet owner. They actually cover ALL vet care costs, PLUS deliver high-quality food to my house AND I get training classes. Amazing!

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.
