"I had made an appointment to get my poodle groomed here and I requested that I did not want my dog being used to for studding as he is not neutered and I have heard" of this happening to certain breeds of dogs before in the past. They called me this morning to tell me that they would not be able to extend services to me based on this request.

Pet Stores

If you want something for your pet — from food to beds to toys — you'll find what you need at a pet store. But the quality of pet stores and their products varies greatly. Know what to look for and what to avoid.

Pet Bakeries

Pet bakeries have emerged as a significant market force in the pet industry, as companies capitalize on the attention many owners lavish on their dogs and cats. How do you know who's making the best treats?

Vets have reported five deaths and more than 1,000 cases of canine influenza, as dog flu spreads in Chicago.

Though unusual, scaly and slimy animals like lizards, snakes and turtles provide stress relief and educational entertainment, but require a long-term commitment from their families.

Angie's Answers



The first answer is pretty thorough but I would like to add a few points. 

First.. the type of food you are feeding your dog may be the key.  If you are using a food that is grain, rice or corn based in the first three ingredients, please change to a food that is meat or chicken based.  Many dogs are allergic to grain, rice, wheat and corn and these things are used as primary ingredients in many well known, name brand dog foods.  Secondly, all treats that have these ingredients should be cut out.  It takes weeks to months before a food change can show results so you must be patient.  Jumping from one food to another will be counter-productive. 

Some dogs are so allergic to flea or other insect bites that one or two bites can cause a severe reaction.  Once the itching/scratching cycle begins, it is hard to stop it.  Benadryl is good but I suggest liquid form.  You can get it inexpensively at one of the dollar stores.  The pills take time to break down in the digestive system so you get better and faster results with the liquid.One tsp= 5cc and most dogs of average size can tolerate that much and more if the dog is a larger breed.  

Allergy testing is very expensive and most dogs will test positive to some things.  That does not mean that the itching is coming from those things as many things in the environment can trigger positive test results.  Breaking the cycle of itching is primary and that can be done with prednisone ( short term and last resort after benadryl and bathing), allergy shots( same deal, last resort after easier methods).   This spring and summer have been particularly hard, weather-wise.

Good luck!



Sorry for the delay in updates.  We had a HUGE major setback and kitty trauma.  Apparently, phone books are NOT optimal for raising up your cat's litterbox if said cat is enormous.  All the websites and literature recommend that you raise up the litterbox to the height of the toilet, and the preferred material is phonebooks.  Not for a nearly 20 lbs cat. Erik hopped in his newly jacked up litter box to do his duty and it promptly shot off the phone books causing mass hysteria and trauma.  TERROR!!  HORROR!!  Meowing in the streets!!

It took a whole week for him to finally being using the litter box AT ALL.  He's been holding it and refusing to go until he heads outside.  We had to take the litter box back down to the ground and start "over" but, he seems to be finally okay with the litter box.  My husband has built a more stable riser for the box to go on that I think we may install this weekend.  I'm going to start setting Erik on the actually toilet trainer starting tonight, and then give him treats, to see if he starts to get the idea.  So, what I have learned:  Indoor/outdoor cats are more difficult to toilet train, big fat giant kitties are too much for phone books alone.

Unfortunately for Erik, he also just got all of his annual shots and a nice checkup from the vet, which involved far more poking in his hind-end than he's comfortable with.  Good news, though!  He's down to 17 lbs. from 25 lbs.  Not that he's happy about it. All that, and the rump-poking seems to have given the litter box trauma a run for it's money.  He's momentarily forgotten that the litter box is fickle and not to be trusted. I guess the answer is that whenever he gets toilet trauma to haul him to the vet for an exam.

So, we continue on in our struggle for a toilet trained cat, but I think this adventure will take much longer than previously thought.  I think that snow on the ground will much improve our chances of success, since he'll be less likely to "hold it"  If I can just get him up on the seat, I think it will be relatively smooth sailing, but I think that the transition from litter will be a doozy, too!!

Pet Store reviews in Boston


Our dog has back problems. She's 11 and a half. This is the second time they've come and groomed her. Usually, when I'd taken her to a groomer in the past, she had cried all the way there and hated it. However when Amber, our new groomer, arrives she gets so excited and doesn't mind it a bit (which is unusual for her). Amber is excellent! I am very pleased with this company.

They were very knowledgeable and listened to what I wanted. They were very friendly and welcoming to me and my pet. Greeted us with a smile. My dog was ready to go home in a little over an hour, which I loved that he did not have to stay cooped up in a cage all day! He looked great, smelled great, exactly what I wanted and he was happy! I'M happy!

I decided to put a 50

among others and decided to give them a try. Best decision I made because I won't go anywhere else now.They have a crew there that was terrific from the minute I walked in. We discussed what I was looking for and that was to build me a 50

tank and Stand and needed help with plants and ornament's.
We spent time together and asked questions about the different shapes and sizes of fish tanks and I ordered the tank and stand right then after spending about an hour talking with them. I haven't had a fish tank in many years and really needed help and they were right there with multiple suggestions leaving the choices to me about tanks, stands, plants and ornaments while we walked the store.
I must have called them four or five times and was always greeted the same way and then their were times I stopped in the store and it was packed but I was always acknowledged with a smile and a friendly hello and told someone will be with me in a minute.

was the greatest with that smile and you always got the feeling whatever you ask or wanted the answer was yes and he may it happen.
By that time I knew them all. Well this week the day August 29 2015 my tank was set-up and me my two cats and wife sit in the den and just stare at it. It's like you can't leave the room it's that beautiful and there's no fish yet. We can't wait for that to happen.

She's the most amazing big-hearted woman I've ever known. From a scale of 1 to 10, she's an 11. She's very friendly and she's so kind. There's tons and tons of animals that you see so much love. She gives everything she possibly can. All around, it's awesome.

Our dog is by no means easy to work with when it comes to his feet, but despite specifically requesting to have his nails trimmed, many were left completely undone, the hair cut was basic and done pretty well.
The front desk people who were in charge of the shop itself (the grooming

is separate I guess?) were extremely rude and unprofessional.

had several ways to contact them, from comments on Facebook to even SMS Texting. The response time was extremely fast. All inquiries were answered accurately. Directions were easy. The appointment great. They were very friendly.They very helpful with questions. I had a lot of questions about my dog and they knew the answer to every question. They did not take forever like some other groomers. My baby's Grooming was amazing. I consider them Master Groomers!

was great! I recommend them to everyone!!!

It’s always hard to plan a vacation and wonder what to do with the family pet. We never wanted to board him in a kennel and expose him to who knows what. Plus the trauma it may cause as a slightly anti-social dog. What’s great is they will take care of your pet in your own home which is very comforting both for the pet and for us as a home owner. Knowing that the house is also being looked after is a bonus. They have stayed at our house for the duration as well as taken the dog

theirs on occasion for doggie playdates. What’s best is that they will text or email at your request status reports and pictures. It makes vacationing that much more enjoyable and care free.

I would highly recommend their services.

Bathed and groomed my 4lb Yorkie. It cost me $46.00. The grooming was done like I had asked, But she didn't smell as clean as I had hoped. The groomer never called me to let me know when she was finished. I had to call to find out and all she said she was sorry. I will try them again but hope my dog will smell clean like she actually had a bath!!
