At Crown Valley Animal Care, the list of pet-saving services rivals that of any human hospital. In their tireless pursuit to keep pets healthy, dedicated veterinarians use modern technology on furry, fluffy friends. Their laser surgery eschews traditional scalpels for highly precise cuts, while ultrasounds and digital radiology detect any potential inner problems. Professional groomers also comb through matted coats, restoring pooches to pristine condition. In addition to providing dentistry, wellness services, and an in-house laboratory for tests, the center?s staff furnishes warmer, fuzzier facilities as well.
Pet boarding suites provide ample room for dogs to lounge and play. Tiffany lamps, soft beds, and pedestals accommodate visiting cats?be they aristocats, blue-collar cats, or cats with any other color of collar.
Betty Estremo, the owner of Betty's Boot Camp for Dogs and Humans, has obtained an AKC Canine Good Citizen Evaluator license, published articles in books by the American Kennel Club, and trained her own dogs to appear in commercials and print work. She has been working with various breeds since she was a girl and trains dogs of all breeds, ages, and demeanors. Because Betty knows that, like a snowflake’s fingerprints, no two dogs are the same, she approaches each pet differently. She offers group lessons, private lessons, and courses that range from clicker training and housebreaking to off-leash training, aggression management, and resolution of barking, chewing, and digging.
iSmile Dentistry proudly proclaims that their doctors are patient specialists and oral-cancer-screening gurus. The crew regularly attends lectures and conventions to remain on the cutting edge of new technology and techniques, including oral-surgery procedures, laser treatments for gum disease, and clear brace aligners. The comprehensive nature of the practice allows patients to receive virtually any service with an on-staff practitioner, eliminating the need to go door to door to find a nearby orthodontist.
At Balanced Life Wellness, experienced life coach and hypnotherapist Dr. Pam Rumi has created a center where all of her personal passions—hypnosis, yoga, nutritional counseling, and personal training—are blended seamlessly. Wanting to help others harness the wellness potential within themselves, Pam works to help her clients lose weight, overcome anxiety, and curb addictions. Come in for a hypnotherapy session designed to help reduce carb and sugar cravings, or have a personalized nutritional session, during which Pam creates customized plans for weight loss and health.
Pacific Park Animal Hospital caters to pets' every need with a roster of health-care, boarding, and grooming services. Under the guidance of Drs. Lisa D. Mandelin and Bridget Holden, the animal-loving staff performs dozens of veterinary services in a facility equipped with a pharmacy, a surgery suite, and an x-ray machine. In addition to physical exams and vaccinations, dogs and cats can enjoy grooming and bathing services or spend the night in clean accommodations.
At Bistro K, traditional Italian recipes merge with eclectic New World flavors for a menu that's reflective of the international history of the family behind it. That story starts back in Italy with the four Bagatta brothers, all chefs who later traveled on to France, South Africa, and Southern California. It was during these wanderings that Tony Bagatta met Massimiliana, the woman who would become his wife. Today, Massimiliana and her daughter Katia run Bistro K as a mother-daughter team, serving up hearty plates from traditional Italian gnocchi to gourmet burgers smothered in gruyère.
