Grooming

We offer a professional full-body shave of dogs and full-body or "lion cuts" cats at our clinic: • Certain breeds—especially those with long hair that mats easily—may need assistance keeping themselves clean. • Animals that are older or have physical disabilities may also benefit from our grooming services. • Also, if your pet is having trouble taking care of regular grooming, it can be a sign of an underlying health issue. Be sure to mention this when you schedule an appointment. You can also call us anytime to discuss your concerns. • During your pet’s grooming session, he or she will receive a bath in specially formulated shampoo tailored to his or her individual needs, a full body shave if requested, a nail trim, and ear cleaning. • We know that a bath or nail trim is normally stressful, you can let us take care of those responsibilities so you—and your pet—can relax. • Besides just making your pet look and smell good, grooming provides health benefits. Regular brushing helps remove dead hair, mats, and dirt and distributes natural oils throughout the fur, keeping the coat clean and healthy. • Trimming hair around the face, ears, paw pads, and other areas can help prevent infections and irritation and keep debris from accumulating. • Trimming nails can prevent joint pain, stiffness, and chiropractic problems. • In addition to providing grooming services, we can teach you techniques to help keep your pet well-groomed. • We encourage you to feel free to ask for a product recommendation or browse our pet-safe shampoos, conditioners, and other grooming products in our reception area.
