Peticures by Tess

I get asked by a lot of people why I have my nails painted when I am not a girl. I will explain why but just to give you a quick background regarding my health, a couple years ago I was diagnosed with IVDD (Interveterbral Disc Disease). It got to a point where the pain became so extreme and I lost my appetite. My human was scared that I wasn't going to make it. I won't talk about it too much right now but the important thing is I got better. You can read more about it here.

Anyway, we noticed that everytime I get my nails done at the vet, my back hurts after. We didn't think too much about it at first but noticed that it always happens after having my nails trimmed at the vet. When my back hurts, it really really hurts and I sometimes even scream/yelp in pain. We think that I probably resist too much when the vet trims my nails which eventually leads me to having back pain.

My human researched for pet nail trimmers in San Diego and she found out about Peticures by Tess. It's very close to our house and she has a lot of good reviews. The only problem is that she is always fully booked and it took a couple of phone calls before we were able to schedule an appointment with them.

I always have a great time when I get my nails done by Tess. Tess wraps me in a blanket and is very gentle with me. She dremels my nails, trims them and then paints my nails. I can opt to not have my nails painted but since I am there anyway we figured might as well just have it painted. I change my nail colors depending on my mood or whatever holiday is coming up. Once my nails are all dry, Tess brings me out to my human and I come out all relaxed and smelling like lavender.

I love going to Peticures by Tess and everyone there is so friendly. Tess and Monique take such good care of me and you can tell that they genuinely like me and all their other clients as well. I have to say that it is a little pricey but if you want to spoil your pup and make them feel relaxed then it is definitely worth it to set up an appointment.
