Pet Grooming Services
We offer a variety of services to ensure your pet’s health and well-being. From boarding and dental care to senior pet care and ultrasounds, our goal is to provide your pet with the best possible care.
Along with feeling good, we want your pet to look good, too. To get your pet ready for a pet grooming session, we offer pet bathing at our animal hospital. This service is available for both dogs and cats.
We may begin with a thorough brushing of the pet’s coat, which removes embedded debris and tangles. The next step is pet bathing, using a specific type of shampoo. This could be a flea shampoo to eliminate pests, soothing oatmeal, and aloe shampoo, or, if your pet is dealing with a medical issue, we may apply a medicated shampoo.
The complete pet grooming session includes drying their coat after the bath and brushing out their coat. We also include ear cleaning and nail trimming. Our team does not do traditional grooming that involves breed-specific cuts/styling of the coat. We also provide complete shaves for dogs and cats.
While we do our best to accommodate your pet’s bathing needs, we will never force the issue. If your pet is unable to tolerate a bathing or shaving session, we can use anesthesia to keep your pet calm during the session. Our safety and the safety of your pet are our number one priority.
Pets must be current with their rabies vaccinations before a session. Canines must also be up to date with their Bordetella vaccine.
Benefits of Pet Grooming
An important benefit of pet grooming is providing your pet with access to a veterinarian who can address any health issues your pet may show signs of during the session. Bathing also addresses a current or potential flea and/or tick infestation. For long-haired pets, a good brushing or shave removes tangles and matted fur that are both uncomfortable and unsightly.
