When a car is damaged by an accident or weather, what can be repaired and what must be replaced? Or is it time to buy a new car?
GROSS, GROSS, GROSS.......Yes, my food was under cooked (raw) chicken wings! I wanted to %%%%% after I had bit into the wing and this chicken blood oozed out my mouth! This was one of the WORST places that I had eaten at. The pizza: DO NOT ORDER IT! We had paid well over $29 for a medium pizza that was the size of a small. It was also cold, wet, runny and limp.As usual, where there is bad food you know there is going to be a hair, right? Yep, and I was the one to find it. It was blonde like the waitress named (MO) or Maureen who served it to us. She also had the audacity to insult me as to "It was not her hair". WHO CARES! It was a hair in my Spaghetti!!!! These OWNER's DON'T GET IT! Very POOR SERVICE! I MEAN JUST AWFUL SERVICE from MO & STEPHANIE!!!VERY BAD TASTING FOOD!UNDERCOOKED FOOD!OVERPRICED!STEPHANIE (one of the owner's) HAD A REALLY BAD ATTITUDE and ARGUED with us over the FOOD & BILL. (It comes down too - she wanted her money because they have to make-up for the POOR QUALITY and people COMPLAINING!)I should have read the BAD REVIEWS because if there is even one bad review then the chances of me having poor service or awful tasting food is rated high in my eyes! I WOULD NEVER RECOMMEND CAPOGNA'S DUGOUT IN CLEARWATER FL!!!!! IF YOU LIKE PIZZA, WINGS, SPAGHETTI, HOAGIES, ETC. THIS IS NOT A FOOD ESTABLISHMENT -- THIS IS A GARBAGE CAN!!!! Seriously!
OK this is the unformatted portion of my usual order of chicken Alfredo :( not cool, but that doesn't mean I will never order from montys again, it was just very strangeUnhappy.
Charlie has been servicing my 1998 Ranger for 17 years. His knowledge and professionalism far exceed any other garage I've been to. His service is excellent and prices fair. This is a family-owned, neighborhood garage with experience in all aspects of car care. Highly recommended. Lauren P
I went to Phoenix Wholesale Auto Services LLC in Clearwater to get Troy to check a small engine sound.The radiator and overflow were empty.He was very knowledgeable and observant and found that the radiator cap was faulty and the water had been lost. I felt I was in the right place with him.He didn't try to sell me a new motor as some would.What with luck and the toughness of Toyota Camry's the car seems to be running great now and the engine sound has gone.He also hatted me very carefully on how to keep an eye on the situation to make sure the problem has been cured.it was a nice experience not a nightmare and I recommend Troy.Diane
Love it here! The weekly specials are what keep me coming back, I enjoy having pizza, but they offer much more than just pizza which makes it even better.
I have been going to this clinic for over 20 years they are the best. I had 2 dogs that came down with Parvo. I took the youngest to the Emergency Vet on Belcher they ended up putting him down said he was so sick. I took the other dog here the next day they were able to save this dog and when asked where the other dog was I told they the Emergency Vets had put him down they said they could have saved him also. That was 5 years ago and My one dog is doing wonderful full recovery and I would not go to another vet after what they have done for us. I tell everyone to go to this vet. LOVE THEM ALL THERE
Quick and friendly service every time. I highly recommend this shop . Thanks Wayne and the rest of the crew!
I own a BMW, I was getting tired of the outrageous repair bills at the dealer. I was referred to Chris at Countryside Automotive by a co worker who also owns a BMW. I had an estimate from the dealer for a brake job and he saved me hundreds of dollars, even using original parts. BMW people, stop going to the dealer and try this shop. They do great work and use the right parts for your BMW, and their pricing blows the dealer away
We took our first teacup chihuahua Roxy there on May 2016 and being first time parents to a 5yr old dog, we were so relieve to know she was in great condition, the doctors were great and the staff were all very caring. Since i am a nervous mom, I take her there so many times and they are so understanding the Vets explained everything in details aND calmed me down
They perform awesome work and are totally reliable. The setting is a very clean and organized environment. They worked on my vehicle and did the job correctly and affordable. I will definitely recommend them for anything small, or large and complicated. They're real true Automotive technicians
Choosing the right vet for your pet can be tough. After all, your furry friend can't tell you how he or she feels about the doctor. Even though you're not the one treated by the vet, whoever your animal sees is obviously your decision. Since many veterinary diseases and injuries can turn into emergencies very quickly, it's important to have a go-to vet. This way, you can ensure you'll know whom to see when your animal needs care.
Speak to your friends and family about vets who've treated their pets. You can even talk to your groomer or an animal shelter worker for referrals. When you visit the clinics you've been referred to, check that the facility is clean, animals are separated and the staff is calm and courteous. Not all clinics are American Animal Hospital Association accredited. This accreditation isn't a legal necessity, though a clinic that's AAHA-accredited is guaranteed to offer high-quality medical care. To receive accreditation, the clinic has to meet the AAHA's standards in the areas of facility, equipment and quality care.
If you're looking for a specialist, you want to make sure he or she is board-certified to practice in that specific area of animal medicine. You'll want to make sure your vet is also convenient to visit, so there are factors to take into account.
The type of animal you own should play a part in which vet you choose as well. While your options are vast if you have a dog or cat, you may have to visit an avian clinic for your bird or an exotics clinic for your snake.
Just as there are many types of doctors, there are many types of vets. Some focus on livestock or house pets, while others may specialize in dentistry or surgery. They may work in a veterinary clinic or zoo, working specifically with the animals housed there, or travel to farms to work with livestock. Since horse racing and other equestrian activities are so popular, some vets are trained to work just with horses.
Diseases, like malaria and yellow fever are also transmitted through animals. Some vets have insight to diseases that affect both humans and animals. Vets have contributed to the treatment and cure of many diseases that plagued both humans and their furry friends.
Government agencies employ veterinarians as well. When an animal comes from a foreign land, these vets quarantine them and check for any diseases that may be present in an effort to control new diseases that can be brought into the country. Other Specific types of vets include:
A vet assistant works alongside the veterinarian and helps out around the clinic. In some cases, they may assist vets in surgery or restrain struggling animals during tests or lab work. The everyday duties of a veterinary assistant include; monitoring and caring for animals after surgery, keeping medical records, cleaning animals' teeth, feeding and bathing them, cleaning cages, sterilizing surgical equipment, giving animals medication, collecting samples for testing and performing laboratory tests, and offering grief counseling to pet owners.
It's a good idea to bring your pet to the vet regularly. This way, he or she becomes familiar and comfortable with the care providers, and you can stay on top of your pet's preventative care. If the animal is small enough, bring it to the office in a carrier. Just as you visit the doctor for a yearly check up, you should bring in your pet for regular check ups as well. During a routine veterinary visit, the vet will probably begin by asking you if there have been any changes in your pet's behavior or habits.
The vet will then take your pet's vitals, like weight, temperature, pulse and respiration rate, and perform a physical examination of the pet. During a physical exam, the vet checks the abdomen for swollen organs, and the legs, feet and joints for any potential problems. Depending on the age, breed or condition of your pet, your veterinarian may also check the eyes, ears and mouth.
When your vet conducts a full body examination, he or she will check out your pet's coat and skin, noting any hair loss, itchy spots or lumps. Keep note of your animal's shedding habits so you can let the vet know if anything seems abnormal. The vet will check for parasites, fleas, ticks, mites and heartworms as well.
Vaccinations are also important to your pet, especially if you have a cat or a dog, and your vet will suggest that you make sure they're current. Keeping up to date with vaccinations can prevent your furry friend from getting distemper, rabies, hepatitis and lyme disease. Some vaccinations last longer than others, so speak to your doctor about staying caught up with your animal's shots.
Just like your own health insurance, you want to make sure your animal is covered before he or she needs veterinary services. Some common animal surgeries can cost thousands of dollars, and you don't want to end up having to foot a surprise bill that costs more than your paycheck.
There's no set price for pet health insurance. Costs can depend on factors such as where you live, the age and breed of your pet, and how much coverage you want. Before you take out a pet insurance policy, you'll want to meet with your vet to go over what he or she thinks your animal should be covered for. Many vets believe that you should make sure cancer, chronic disease, hereditary and congenital disease, and common breed-related medical conditions are all addressed in your policy.
Some pet owners can't afford insurance for their pet, so there are other options to make paying for surprise pet visits as easy as possible. Some pet stores have wellness plans - which tend to be much cheaper than an insurance policy - that offer shots, check ups, screenings and discounts on various procedures your pet may need. A lot of veterinary offices offer payment plans for pricey procedures as well, as long as you have decent credit history. For a last-ditch option, there are even privately funded organizations that offer pet owners financial aid for their pet's treatments.
