About Our Pet Grooming Services
We offer professional pet grooming services to help your pet look their best. Our groomers take exceptional care of your pet and extend their services to all ages, sizes, and breeds. With numerous services and options, you can tailor your pet’s grooming treatment to your specific desires. Whether you want a simple shampoo or a breed-specific cut and blow-out, our pet stylists provide stunning results.
Upon scheduling your grooming appointment, be sure to let our staff know if your pet has any skin allergies so we can arrange for them to have a medicated shampoo and soothing skin conditioner.
Benefits of Pet Grooming
There are many reasons to bring your pet in for a professional dog or cat grooming.
Some of the grooming services we offer include:
- Anal gland expressions (dogs only)
- Breed standard haircut or haircut based on owner preferences
- Ear cleaning (if there is anything abnormal the veterinarian will be notified)
- Full bath and brush-out (or blow-out depending on breed)
- Medicated bath for pets with skin allergies
- Nail trimming
In addition to these benefits, pet grooming can also be relaxing for animals. Taking your pet to the groomer can help your pet feel great — like he or she just came back from the spa.
For your pet’s safety as well as the safety of our groomers, we do require all pets to have current vaccination records when scheduling grooming appointments. If your pet requires any boosters at the time of scheduling grooming, simply let the receptionist know, and our veterinarian can administer the vaccine prior to service. The added convenience of having both veterinarian and groomer in our office is that vaccinations and grooming can be scheduled for a single visit.
Please note that our groomers perform all services to their best abilities. If services cannot be rendered due to pet aggression or unwillingness, we will not force your pet to undergo the planned treatment. Our office will notify you of any services that we were not able to complete prior to picking up your pet. While you will not be charged for services not performed, our groomers will offer suggestions to help lessen your pet’s apprehension towards their next grooming appointment.
What to Expect
During a standard grooming and bathing appointment, your pet will be bathed and brushed, and then his or her coat will be trimmed. If your pet's nails are long, we can trim them as well.
Different pets have different needs, with some pets requiring a lot more trimming and brushing than others. We'll let you know if your pet has any special bathing needs at the start of the appointment.
How Often Should My Pet Be Groomed?
Most pets should be professionally groomed at least once annually and certain dog breeds need to be groomed far more often.
The length of time between appointments depends on:
- Type or breed of pet
- How fast your pet's coat grows
- Pet’s susceptibility to matting
- Time of year
How Can I Maintain My Pet’s Coat at Home?
Brush your pet's coat on a regular basis, but avoid excessive bathing. Bathing your pet too often can cause dry and flaky skin.
