How to remove Skunk Spray from your dog in Riverside

skunkOh No!! The dreaded skunk spray! Don’t panic…
Here at Riverside Grooming, we have the answer to your unpleasantness. It’s not very pleasing when your dog or cat gets skunked. Skunk smell is extremely hard to get rid of and can smell up your entire home. Luckily our salon carries the latest state-of-the-art Technology of odor removal – Our Microbubble Machine. Microbubbles penetrate the skin and hair follicles for the deepest cleanse possible for your dog’s skin and coat. It will remove the horrible skunk odor and provide your pet with a nice deep-skin cleanse. This tear-free treatment is a great alternative to other harsh chemicals that can potentially irritate the skin. While other salons are using tomato juice or other concoctions (UGGH) – with our treatment, your pet will get a perfect, relaxing spa-like experience. These older methods help, but do not get to the core of the chemical reactions.

If you run into this traumatic incident, give us a call immediately. ADDITIONAL WARNING: Do NOT try to bathe your pet as water can make it worse – unless you have a Microbubble machine!

National Dog Bite Prevention Week

The National Dog Bite Prevention Week® is an annual awareness effort put on by The American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA). It is traditionally held during the 3rd full week of May. That makes it May 15 through the 21st this year (2016). The purpose is the teach people about Dog Bites, their statistics and most importantly, how to prevent them.

Did you know that there are about 70 million dogs in the United States? Millions of dog bites occur each year, and most of them are to kids. Nearly ALL of them can be prevented.

More facts and reports:

According to the AVMA,

  • Dog Bites are #11 among the leading cause of non-fatal injury to kids 4 and younger. #9 for kids between 5-9 and #10 for children from ages 10-14.
  • In 2013, nearly $500 million have been paid out due to claims related to dog bites. Yikes!
  • In 2013, nearly 27,000 procedures were done in reconstructive surgery, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, due to dog bites.
  • Over 5 thousand Postal employees have been attacked in 2013 by dogs. It’s no wonder they carry their pepper spray with them every day.
  • It’s been reported that 66% of dog bites to kids are at the head and neck areas.

So, this is nothing to ignore. Please help us to spread the word.

Below is a video you can show your children as one tip.

Happy Thanksgiving – Again? Already?

turkeyDreamThe year went by so fast. It’s hard to believe it’s Thanksgiving again. We are very thankful for your support with Riverside Grooming and we’re looking forward to grooming your pets for the holiday season. Please note that the holidays are usually the busiest time of the year for our salons. We highly recommend that if you want a haircut on your pet that you come right away, because as we approach Thanksgiving day we may only be able to accept simple baths and tidy-ups. You may even want to consider getting the hair cut now and coming back right before the family get-together for a fresh last minute bath! Thanksgiving Store Hours: Both shops will be open Tuesday & Wednesday before Thanksgiving (24th & 25h). They will both be closed on Thursday & Friday (26th & 27th).


gift cards

We now offer our new gift cards for the holidays. These cards are similar to a Starbucks card in that they are reloadable. If you need to start early for your holiday gift shopping, why not get them a nice grooming for their pet?

Celebrating our 1st Anniversary at This Location

Hard to believe that it’s already been a year since we opened our 2nd location on Indiana Ave. Aside from our early years in the Grooming profession (1970’s – 1990’s), our founders, Don & Jacki Panzik established Riverside Grooming on April 16, 2011. We’ve been growing ever since and last year, on November 11, 2013, we opened this second Riverside location. We’re proud to be able to say the reception has been wonderful.

Doggie Fashions at Riverside Grooming

You never know what cute new Doggie fashion attire your pet will come home wearing when groomed at Riverside Grooming.

We go to great measures to sniff out the latest hot trends but mostly, we create hot new trends ourselves. Some of our customers even request some color to add a little,or a lot, of pizzazz.
Over the years we got sort of bored with the same old bows and bandanna routine so we decided to spice life up a bit by thinking outside of the box and designing our own cute, and sometimes even a bit sexy attire for the most discriminating of our doggie pals. Flowers to match the season, bow-ties and neck-ties for our boys and we don’t leave out our big boys and girls when it comes to this fashion fun either.
To add to frenzy we are doing temporary pet safe color on some of our more daring customers. Just in time for Howl-o-ween! Come join us!
