With spa facials, massages, and nail painting, Swanky Paws Pet Spa sounds like a retreat for owners, not their pets. But the pet CPR/First Aid–certified staff members tailor all of their services for the cats and dogs they serve. They treat furry friends to a wide range of pampering services and specialize in fine hand-scissoring for all breeds. Even the basic bath indulges critters with two washings, a deep-cleaning shampoo, a coat conditioner, and a full brush-out. Pets then revel in treatment fit for Air Bud with a breath spray and a sanitary and pad trim, and strut home sporting seasonal bows or bandanas.
In addition to grooming pets, the staff also supervises a small-dog daycare where pups under 25 pounds can romp or discuss which designer’s shoes taste best.
After working as a veterinary technician, Strutt Your Mutt's owner decided to put her passion for animals toward starting her own dog-grooming business. She lathers up pooches' coats and trims nails and fur during bath and grooming services. Her additional treatments include cleaning canines’ ears, brushing teeth free of cat hair, and maintaining nails with the Dremel, a tool that comfortably clips pets’ claws into shorter, smoother nails.
Despite some seemingly intimidating treatments—vaccinations, shots, and spaying/neutering—pets cheerfully wag their tails at Peachtree Animal Clinic. The animal-loving staffers go beyond the call of duty when animals are concerned, providing pets with medical care and even offering adoption services to strays and rescued animals. They also specialize in preventive treatments, dental care, microchipping, and boarding.
For more than two decades , the dedicated staff at Pet Med Plus have combined advanced technology and old-fashioned warm-heartedness to care for dogs and cats. The clinic’s on-site lab allows for faster blood test results, and digital radiography helps locate areas of concern or stores of hidden biscuits. Pet Med Plus also provides alternative therapies specially designed for furry companions, including laser therapy intended to reduce pain and inflammation and stress-relieving Reiki. Boarding services grant pets a comfortable home away from home, complete with a large yard, and a retail area stocks treats and toys.
At D-O-G's Pet Spa, head groomer Stephanie helps out all breeds of canine and feline clients with a variety of pampering treatments. During full-service sessions, Stephanie bathes pets and trims their fur to keep them looking beautiful and reduce shedding, which in turn keeps evil wig makers from sneaking into homes in search of stray hairs. Owners can also have pets' nails trimmed to furniture-safe levels and schedule flea and tick dips that protect pets and owners alike from irritating insects.
