Grooming

Currently at our hospital we do not have a professional groomer BUT we are always here to provide a proper bath to pets especially those who require a medicated bath. Certain breeds (cats or dogs), especially those with long hair that mat easily, may need assistance keeping themselves clean - we can do minor shaves for those pets that need that touch up. Animals that are older or have physical disabilities may also benefit from our services. For folks that are themselves older and find bathing a pet difficult - we can do it for you . Call to set up a convenient time.We do provide sedation and shaves for those cats (and occasionally a dog) that can just not be done by a professional groomer. Sedation is provided by our Veterinarian and monitored by our veterinary Assistant or Technician throughout the procedure and into recovery.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.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.We can teach you techniques to help keep your pet well-groomed. And feel free to ask for a assistance in grooming or bathing techniques and to discuss product recommendations or browse our pet-safe shampoos, conditioners, and other grooming products in our reception area.
