"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!!!

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.

Just like you, your pet may pack on extra weight over winter. But that's not the only health concern to watch for in winter. Here's how to keep your dog safe and happy despite the cold.

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.

When you have a pet, it's important to consider basic needs for housing, food and exercise. (Photo courtesy of Angie's List member Craig McC of Cary, N.C.)

Bringing a new pet home can be fun and exciting. It's the beginning of a long life together. Following a few dos and don'ts of basic pet care can help to make it as stress-free as possible!

Hi

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!!

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!!

You can have your dog walked, or you can have your dog CARED for.
I first encountered

of
Silver Springs Pet Stores Provider Name Locked
while I was walking my own dog in the woods. We would cross paths and she would of course say hello to me, but it was the way she would
Silver Springs Pet Stores Provider Name Locked
my dog, Gunna, that made her stand out in my mind when we knew our work schedules would require a professional dog walker. The dogs she was walking on any of the occasions I would bump in other were always calm, and so responsive to her commands.
Our dog is naturally shy around new people. But, from the first meet and
Silver Springs Pet Stores Provider Name Locked
,
Silver Springs Pet Stores Provider Name Locked
showed control and kindness in her actions. Most importantly, she was able to explain to me exactly what she was doing, and why she chose those training and approach methods specifically with Gunna and her behavior.
Silver Springs Pet Stores Provider Name Locked
was able to gain not just the trust of our dog, but of us as well.
We had been hiking with Gunna off leash since she was a puppy, but would she behave the same way with someone new?
Gunna's training began by walking her around the house, then in the neighborhood, eventually on a long lead in the woods, until Gunna became part of the pack and was able to regard
Silver Springs Pet Stores Provider Name Locked
as her leader.
Silver Springs Pet Stores Provider Name Locked
would document the progress the entire time and sending us pictures and videos on each visit.
She didn't have to do that, but knew it would give us peace of mind.
Silver Springs Pet Stores Provider Name Locked
sends pictures and videos on occasion (if you ask her to she will send one everyday)
These are great because it allows us to be a part of all of the happy, funny, messy moments in a way that only pup parents can appreciate. Although, my coworkers really enjoy them, too.

is very responsive to all communications- emails, phone calls, and even last minute texts.
They are always prompt, professional, and friendly.
On occasion, I haven't been sure as to what level of services we would need, BTN listened and helped me to come up with a schedule that ensured Gunna's care first, and was cost reasonable second.
When it comes to payment, It couldn't be easier - whatever method works best for you.
Silver Springs Pet Stores Provider Name Locked
leaves the house in good condition as she leaves, bringing in packages, turning on/off lights, and always, ALWAYS makes sure that Gunna is clean before she leaves. She tends to love the mud - Gunna, not
Silver Springs Pet Stores Provider Name Locked
(but maybe her too)
In the few months that
Silver Springs Pet Stores Provider Name Locked
has been caring for Gunna, we have seen such an improvement in our already wonderful dog. You can physically see how healthy she is - she looks stronger than ever.
Her obedience has markedly improved.
Silver Springs Pet Stores Provider Name Locked
is sure to share any training cues she may use so you can develop your own skills as well. Gunna is much more responsive to our commands which is a joy as pet owner.
And she is definitely happy. Not only does Gunna greets
Silver Springs Pet Stores Provider Name Locked
as if she was one of us when she picks her up, she is better when she is introduced to new people as well.
I think
Silver Springs Pet Stores Provider Name Locked
said it best herself in a text she wrote to me "One of the best things about this job is that people who love dogs are often great people."

I ordered this product in March 2015 and it was indicated I would receive an email to verify the order within 2 weeks. I never did. I called back (but didn't note the date) to find out if they did indeed have my order and they did but it was on back order. On April 29th I called again after checking online to see the status of the order and the status said back order still and was told my shipping delivery date would be May 11,2015. Nothing. So May 14th I checked online again and there was NO back order status so I called and spoke to a lady named
Silver Springs Pet Stores Provider Name Locked
, who offered to drop the $12.90 shipping charge and get it out as soon as possible since I had been waiting so long. So today, June 18,2015 I checked online and it said my order had been cancelled!!!!! So once again I called and spoke to someone who I have no idea how to spell her name and she informed me they had sent out a back order notice on May 19,2015 asking if I still wanted the order to please respond or the order would be cancelled. THIS IS JUST AN OUTRIGHT LIE. I have yet to receive ANY email, snail mail, phone call or any other response from these people and at the beginning of each phone call I made they asked my phone number and address to verify my order so I know that the information they have is correct. Of course they asked if I'd like to order the product to which I responded, "No! I don't want anything to do with this company! This is all ridiculous!" and was told to have a nice day.

The employees in the store are very helpful and seem very knowledgeable about fish and fish tanks. we've been having a problem with the ammonia in our fish tank, and they helped suggest products that may not work as well and ones that would work better. Our tank eventually cleared up. We will definitely go back!

. She is so professional and caring. I trust her to take care of all my 3 birds needs. You can call and talk to her or go in to the store and meet with her. She takes time to listen to what you are dealing with and gives great suggestions and advice. My birds love her so much that I may leave them to her in my will, only kidding.
