Bow Wow Meow Grooming serves an eclectic clientele—dogs of all breeds, including labradoodles and great pyrenees, and a full spectrum of cat breeds, from persians to blue russians. Grooming services are tailored to each breed, as well as each animal's fur type and lifestyle. Its full grooming consists of more than a bath—pups and felines also luxuriate in paw massages, blowouts, and haircuts. The expert technicians tidy up pets beyond their fur, too. They also clean eyes and ears and brush buildup off teeth. Pet owners who prefer a more hands-on approach can bathe their animals in the center's self-bathe facilities, complete with waterproof aprons for splashes. In addition, Bow Wow Meow Grooming offers other services, such as pet daycare, which hosts pets during the workday and allows them to romp in a cage-free play space.
Since 1995, VIP PetCare has been operating community veterinary clinics to make preventive care accessible and affordable for all pet owners. The clinics rotate through 250 markets and provide heartworm tests, flea treatments, dewormers, and other vital care on a regular basis to keep pets healthy. Furry friends stay easily identifiable after microchipping services, and vaccination packages protect from maladies that range from rabies to kennel cough. Each clinic is overseen by a state-licensed vet to ensure the safety of each animal. VIP PetCare also partners with pet retail stores and animal shelters in each of their markets, and has donated more than $400,000 in supplies and materials to animal shelters and rescue groups over the last three and a half years.
Groomer Katie Mirabelli first picked up her grooming shears at the age of 10 as a junior handler at dog shows. After completing her grooming certification as an adult, Katie began preening the coats of canines at The Velvet Dog Spa. She specializes in hand stripping terriers, prepping dogs for shows, and caring for less common breeds. In addition to baths and haircuts, Katie also handles walk-in services including nail trims, ear cleaning, anal-gland expression, and brush-outs.
For more than 30 years, the caring professionals at Pampered Paws Pet Salon have been sprucing up cats and dogs with baths, haircuts, and general grooming services. Staff members customize each cut according to the animal's breed, hair type, and lifestyle—whether that means de-kinking a toy poodle's curls, restoring luster to an irish setter's coat, or sculpting a hairstyle to complement a saint bernard's Sherlock Holmes's costume.
