I came to Warner Robins in 1987 looking for a professional hairdresser. Noriko is a hairdresser that takes the time to care about the customer and how they look. She is constantly keeping up-to-date on the modern styles and fads of what is "in" by attending the most elite salon shows; learning new techniques by the professionals from around the country. Her salon is very clean and pleasant to be in. I have recommended friends to Noriko and they were totally satisfied. She really takes her job to heart and makes sure her customers leave her salon happy. In my opinion, not only is she is the best hairdressers in this part of Georgia, she has become one of my dearest friends over the years. I wouldn't trust another hairstylist with my hair. She uses the requested organic products on my hair and the difference is just absolutely superb. I cannot say enough about the excellent attention she gives to her clients. Noriko's love of people and her job just permeates through her finished creation. Super fantastic, Noriko!!
Very impressed with my experience. The doctor is very young and energetic and really took time to explain things to me and my stepson about our new puppy. Everything from fleas to behavior training, he left nothing out and was more than happy to spend time answering all our questions despite the fact that there were several other people there that probably needed to be seen. Very thorough. Price matching on preventatives is great. By using the coupon for the first visit, we got all our dogs vaccines, dewormed, six months of prevention and a very thorough exam for under $130. Practice is clearly been around for a while and it shows but the facility was clean and grounds well maintained. It's not on any main roads so it's less stressful letting your dog out to do business versus other practices i've been to that are off busy highways. will certainly be back and have our pup scheduled for fixing in a few weeks! Definitely recommend
I just want to say that August 8, 2015 was the first time I ever had a housekeeping service in my home, yes finally talked my husband into it. My husband kept saying that what they do I can do it, but with both of us working, taking care of the kids my house stayed a mess, but I must say that I am so please with the service from Best Housekeeping Professional, I have a three bedroom 2-1/2 bath, about 1800 square feet, and the company sent 3 lady’s out to my home, in 3 hours they was checking off on some sheet that later I found out is there 61 point check off list, then they gave it to me and asked me to check to make sure everything was of my satisfaction, so I did and I promise everything on that list was completed, and then my charge was under $120.00 for a first time clean.P.S: Yes they will be coming back, tomorrow will be my 3rd cleaning and I’m still HAPPY.Thanks,J. Hodges
Though my interaction was quite painful as it involved the loss of our longtime companion, I can't say enough about the class, empathy, and professionalism of all those at the clinic. We had been to other doctors and been misdiagnosed recently but Dr. Hilliard found out what was wrong and explained things in a very straightforward way, even going so far as to draw out how and why things were happening as they were. He gave us all the options with the potential outcomes of each and was there all the way for advice, even going out of his way to talk with us on Sunday when closed. The empathy the staff showed us in our time of grief made it obvious they genuinely cared and were not just another animal and family. Though I'd never wish anyone to have to go through the experience, if it ever happens it is my hope it is with the support, care and love that we received.
We have been with Houston Vet clinic for over 7 years always felt welcomed and that my pets were their pets. This past weekend 8 Aug 15 my dog suddenly appeared to be very sick. Called the office and told them what was going on and was told to get her their asap. This was 5 minutes before they were to close for the day. There was no hesitation about telling me to get there. Upon arrival they got us right to exam room and started treatment. Never felt like we were being rushed through and it was well over an hour past closing time. Dr Knox Hilliard told me how to contact him if my dog got worse. I did contact him around 8pm and got a timely reply. We highly recommend Houston Vet Clinic.
Wow....what an awesome experience I had At Eye International Lash Lounge. I enjoyed a great facial in an atmosphere where soft music played my favorite style of Jazz. While Master Esthetician Kaleia was doing my facial massage she would pass a scented oil below my nostrils with a citrus smell or herbal smell, I found it to be sooooo soothing. Days after my treatments I received compliments from people whom felt my skin glowed and that I looked refreshed. Can't wait for my next day of pampering. My most memorable thought would be her level of professionalism. Thank you Kaleia!MBadioDecatur, Ga.
verwhelmed with the sympathy which their doctor showed towards my sons dog who passed away despite all their best efforts. Dr. Hilliard explained things slowly and simply in such a way that we understood everything and you could tell he is on your side. It's rare these days to have people that aren't driven solely by profits in the service industry and fortunately the folks at Houston Vet Clinic really do care. they do an unbelievable amount of work with rescue animals also which i find so neat. When the day comes that we are ready to add another to the family, we'll be back without question
Absolutely my favorite place in town to get a pedicure. Their customer service is top notch. This is one of very few places I've been to where they don't just rush through the process, even if someone else comes in. The service you receive is on par with many high end spas, and far surpasses the service you receive at local nail salons. The prices are very reasonable and on par with what you would pay at a nail salon of lower quality. They add several personal touches that you can't find anywhere else as well.
I hired white glove cleaning to do a move out clean on my rental home and to clean my new house before moving in. They also did an amazing job with carpet cleaning both houses. They were extremely professional, affordable and willing to work with my schedule!! They did such a good job that during my move out inspection the inspector said the house looked better than it did when I moved in. I couldn't have asked for better service and will definitely be using them for every cleaning need in the future!!
Only gave five stars because you couldn't give a sixth. The entire staff knows everything about raising and caring for my dog, and seeing the young doctor is like an appointment with an entertainer that is brilliant and puts both your babies and you at ease.. Dr. Knox could have gone into teaching he breaks down things into ways to easily understand for the layperson. Always available even after hours for questions, first doctor or vet I've ever had to make a next day call back to check on a patient.
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.
