We have been taking our 140 pound dog, Buddy, to Merri for the last two years. It is not easy to find a groomer who is comfortable handling a dog that size. The grooming is great, but, beyond that, Merri always looks out for any health issues and on more than one occasion has alerted us to a problem which required attention. In one instance she noticed a tumor hidden by his fur which turned out to require immediate surgery, without which Buddy would certainly have died. Big thanks from Glen and Lisa.
