Recommendations for Cat Dental Exam

Hi,

My adult cat has a loose grey tooth that will likely need to be x-rayed and possibly extracted under anesthesia. I called my regular vet and she said that they don't have the necessary equipment. Does anyone know of a good place I can go to that's either in Edgewater or a nearby neighborhood?

Thank you!

    I have been taking my dog to Broadway Animal Hospital and they have been working on her teeth for the past 3-4 years. She is an adopted animal whose teeth were never taken care of. I have an appointment this week to take her back to have more teeth extracted. She has had almost half of her teeth extracted. They do a wonderful job of taking good care of her. I would very much recommend.

  • Hazelg, Sounds like your doggy has a caring parent now! Enjoy!

Boyfriend robbed - phone stolen in alley between Balmoral and Berwyn

Be careful Edgewater friends -- my boyfriend was just robbed by three taller African American men. They took his phone, but didn't hurt him. This happened in one of the alleys between Balmoral and Berwyn (he is shaken up and took a new route home and couldn't remember which alley. It was close to Broadway. So mad right now, but so blessed that he did not get harmed.

    Erin -- good idea -- I'll try to do that when I get a free minute!

    RodgersEdge -- they unfortunately came out of nowhere -- he didn't see them before it happened, and then they were gone. I will update once I get with the Alderman's office!

    Catherine -- we definitely did. They turned it off immediately. He cleared the phone remotely, and it looks like it worked around 4 AM. It hasn't been online long enough to ping anything new. Sad news about the cameras -- we need a ton more.

  • One more question, Daniel, was this alley east or west of Broadway?

    Thanks for the run - you are correct Andersonville is changing and it isn't pretty. Went to Andersonville for dinner last night - parked at Walgreen and walked to Lady Gregory - was saddened by all the closed restaurants and empty store fronts. At 7PM Lady Gregory had a 45 minute wait for 2 people; because they are one of the few remaining restaurants. This type of wait will drive customers away from Andersonville . Andersonville Chamber and Development Corporation should have a pulse on the retail environment. What is their take on what is happening? Is the demise of Andersonville, as a cute residential destination, destined to change? A change to a more commercial environment will affect the amenity gentrification environment and real estate values. I hope the Chamber and Development Corp can stop this. Store owners need to realize if they keep increasing the rents they run the risk of changing the attraction of the area . A steady tenant, at a lower rate, is better than a churning empty rental environment. I suspect the Ombra building landlord is learning this now.

    Rents are driving small merchants out. Shame this was a nice gift store and I wonder if the pie place will be next to go.

  • Invictus Edgewater neighbor

    In this case it wasn't the high rent; the owners also own the building.

    Also, there are very few empty storefronts in Andersonville, and there are many restaurants....perhaps too many

Sirens

I live near the intersection of Bryn Mawr and Winthrop in Edgewater, and the ambulance traffic and accompanying noise are nearly constant. It's so loud some nights my friend and I have taken to calling it armageddon. For a while, I speculated that late night violence or something of that matter must be the cause of the incessant ambulance traffic. It's come to my attention that there are quite a few nursing homes down Sheridan, and the regular transport of indigent and ailing might Not to be insensitive, but is there nothing to be done for this? It amounts to the worst kind of noise pollution. Surely flashing lights are sufficient at 2 a.m. on primarily residential streets?

    Make an investment in sound deafening windows - i did it and iIonly hear muffled sirens. I do not hear any other outside noise - my bedroom is on the street side - so it was a great investment. I remember returning home from work after the installation was completed and thought I had walked into a bank safe - it was sooo quiet. As I said -worth the investment.

  • d3 NOH

    Figure out what private ambulance companies are doing it and make reports. They cannot legally run With sirens u less it is a life threatening issue. There was a Tribune or ST article calling this out about 6 or 7 years ago ... Most of the time they are doing g it illegally

    So true, catlady, so true.

  • Know me I never played any race card . Also the evidence showed Trayvon attacked Zimmerman unprovoked. That is why he was completely exonerated if any wrong doing

    There are too many other restaurants on the North side of Chicago to be bothered with one that is not sanitary.

    And not every restaurant gets inspected regularly—you might be eating at one that would fail if it did.
