  • Love Fur Dogs is widely recognized in the greater Chicagoland area as the go-to place for dogs (and cats!) with skin and coat problems of all kinds. Some clients are already traveling to us from more than an hour away or even from out of state for our treatments and expertise.

    Our Master Groomer Jennifer is a certified skin care expert and will work with your veterinarian (who is the professional for the INSIDE of your dog) to treat the OUTSIDE of your dog for allergies, hormonal problems, fungal and bacterial infections, parasites, skunk attacks, and a host of other skin and coat maladies.

    We have seen extraordinary results and have provided significant relief to some chronic conditions such a alopecia, as well as acute conditions like Hot Spots. Medication alone does not always provide the relief needed. Treating the outside of the skin and down deep into the hair follicle can accomplish what seems to be simply miraculous.

    Our spa treatments can assist virtually any skin condition through simple, gentle, natural deep cleaning by our incredible microbubble machine . The microscopic bubbles penetrate deep inside the skin, penetrating inside pores and follicles, literally lift dander, allergens, fungus, bacteria, etc., away from the skin.




    Add to that our spa products that give the skin and coat unique to your dog’s breed what it needs to heal itself – minerals for wire and double coats, humectants and emolients for curly, long, and combination coats, de-tox for troubled skin, and oils for always too-dry short and smooth coats.

    Combining the forces of our incredible microbubble machine – the gentle, natural, safe and effective way to use simple air and water to get your pet the cleanest clean – with our spa quality products: oils and clays, masques and minerals – each one chosen to address the needs of the particular issue, we have been able to help many families struggling with expensive chronic skin problems on their beloved dog or cat who is clearly suffering and uncomfortable.


    To demonstrate our amazing spa and microbubble ability, we are posting below actual results of just one of our miraculous cases of recovery after our treatments!

    We partnered in Spring 2017 with Andrea Keener of Home To Home Dog Rescue of Wilmette and donated weekly spa and microbubble treatments to help a special little Beagle named Ms. Betsy. We started the #SavingMsBetsy campaign (check it out on Twitter), working with many other volunteers including veterinarians and rescue experts to bring her back to life and try to find her a forever home.

    Featured on WGN News, this poor half-blind beagle, missing one eye, was rescued from horrific puppy mill conditions in Louisiana. She had been fed rancid food, lived in trash-filled cages, bred repeatedly, and dunked in dirty motor oil repeatedly to kill the many fleas and ticks crawling on her (it did not work!). She was missing hair on her ears, nose, tail, legs, and her skin was horribly damaged. She was bald in several places – ears, tail, nose, back legs. The skin was black and swollen, covered with scabs and horrific dandruff. She was clearly suffering in silent agony.

    After 6 weeks of treatments with our spa products and wonderful microbubble machine her coat was fully restored, her skin and hair soft and shiny. She is now back to health and ready to find her forever home! For much more about this cutting edge national microbubble phenomenon sweeping the grooming and human medical field, see www.thera-clean.com
