Introduction: Ive been a veterinary technician for about 10 years. Taking care of animals has always been a passion of mine. I can help administer medication, such as; insulin for diabetics, giving subcutaneous fluids for animals in kidney failure, or something as simple as pilling your cat. (They can be quite difficult and stubborn!) I can also do simple grooming. Sanitary shaves, nail trims, anal sac expression and ear cleaning. Please reach out if you need any help with your pets!

In-house grooming doesn’t get any easier than this. Dana arrived on time and was petting my cat immediately. For the next hour, I barely heard my cat screaming except when it is time for a bath. My cat is terrified of water and Dana immediately made the right decision to use waterless shampoo instead. My cat came out so handsome with a cute lion cut. It was a stress free grooming experience at the comfort of my home. I highly recommend Dana.

Dana was AMAZING! Harry my love g haired cat was all matted. I tried myself to take care of this with little success. He was so aggressive that I had to contact my vet for medication to calm him down to groom him. It did not work very well. I co tasted Dana, she got back to me right away and came the very next day. When she came, she was very assuring that she could get thus done. I told her It's a tuff job, she said let me see what I can do. Results she was AMAZING, she was do e in a very short time and Harry my problem child was all done, shaved,matted hair all gone. I am so greatful to you Dana. You are the best. I will give her info to all my friends and I would 100% recommend this wonderful lady. From the bottom of my heart I thank you.

ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! I felt comfortable with her right away because of her professional background and how much she seemed to genuinely care about my cats. She was extremely helpful, and explained in detail everything she planned to do, and was able to set me up with an appointment in just a few days. She suggested to do the appointment in home so my cat would feel more comfortable. She arrived on time and prepared with everything she needed. Right off the bat, my cat was instantly comfortable around her. Now I would say my cat is a very friendly cat, but typically there is a hiss or two upon introduction, and then she typically warms to the person. But with Dana, my cat loved her the moment she met her. I was able to hand my cat off to her, and my cat had no issue with it at all. I requested a personal grooming because my cat cannot tolerate being brushed, having her claws trimmed, etc. With my cat any small attempt is typically a huge battle that involves screaming, hissing, biting, and clawing. But Dana took a gentle approach, doing quick short bursts of grooming, followed by praise and treats, somethings she calls cat/kitty minutes, due to the naturally short temperament/patience of cats. She was able to bathe, brush, de-shed, trim nails, sanitary trim, and clean my cat’s ears all while keeping my cat happy throughout the process! And I absolutely love the results! As if the experience could not be perfect enough already, she was kind enough to sit on the floor with me to explain, show, and model the techniques she used so I could continue grooming my cat and trimming her nails between appointments. Grooming cats is not an easy job, but Dana is an absolute miracle worker! If your cat is in need of a grooming, Dana is absolutely your best bet. I’m already looking forward to scheduling the next appointment!

The best grooming experience ever! Dana was so quick and kind with my baby Venus and was so extremely communicative! She understood what it’s like to be a first time cat mommy and provided with me with so much needed information. Her decade long experience was really shown when caring for my kitten. Dana is so extremely educated and definitely knows what she’s doing. She even checked her ears without asking and was able to apply some cat nail caps on Venus! Her love and passion for animals were really apparent! I don’t see myself wanting to ever see anyone else after all the pampering and amazing treatment we received! Be ready to receive cute updates and attentive care for you and your fur baby. Dana is definitely the person to see! 💖

Dana was kind and gentle with our cats and most importantly patient. Very professional and easy to schedule and work with. I highly recommend her for all your cat grooming needs.
