Deep-cleansing facials. Relaxing massages. Feather hair extensions. These are just three of the treatments that await Luxury Pet Spa & Boutique's canine and feline visitors. The spa staff believes that pets deserve the same luxury afforded to their human counterparts, and this is reflected in everything from its hypoallergenic products, to its holistic pet food, to its decor: chocolate-colored walls, cushy armchairs, and the stained wood table Lassie used to write her memoirs. Chandeliers spill light across the treatment rooms, where groomers shampoo fur, trim nails, and cleanse ears. However, these are just the preliminary steps to an animal makeover. The groomers also style fur with the finesse of hairdressers and use airbrushes to paint fur with colorful accents.
Hounds Town USA’s friendly staff coddles pups, ushering them to peaceful, private boarding rooms to rest up for days spent cavorting with peers in the expansive doggie play area. Rovers spend the day romping with their fellow canine campers, with playtime bookended by a hearty morning and afternoon feast of Nutro dog food presented in stainless-steel dishes or on the back of a interning cat. When the capering concludes, pups make their way to their private abodes to get a good night’s sleep atop orthopedic, chew-proof bedding. Owners can outfit dogs with a pack containing their own food, bedding, and toys if desired, allowing pups to revel in the sights and scents of home more effectively than scrapbooking their favorite bones.
The professional-bathing staff at Paw Seasons Hotel & Day Spa cleanses furry friends of all shapes and sizes in deep, stainless-steel washbasins. Their specialized hydro-surge system drenches pets in pleasantly warm streams of water, whereas rich shampoos expunge dirt, dander, and prior bone-stealing convictions from coats. Canine coddlers pay extra attention to details such as the ears and anal glands and create a spa-style experience for pets with a back-and-head massage that melts away doggie tension. Lingering moisture evaporates into thin air under room-temperature wafts from a blow dryer, whereas a nail trimming halts late-night tap-dancing sessions across wooden floors. Pulchritudinous pups strut out of their cleansing refreshed, odor free, and sporting a dapper bow or bandana to accentuate their newly spiffy coat.
The bright-blue awning hanging outside Queens Animal Health & Emergency makes it hard to miss; it's blend of Eastern and Western medical treatments make the clinic hard to forget. Its veterinarians are well versed in general-wellness care for their clients' four-legged friends and use acupuncture to manage a variety of chronic issues, such as arthritis, asthma, and the anxiety that stems from trying to bark in Morse code. With its boarding services, staff members care for pets while their owners are on vacation, and grooming sessions keep animals looking their best.
