Grooming is an important part of maintaining your pet's skin and coat. Pets who aren't regularly groomed can develop skin conditions that can only be treated with proper medical attention. Pets with matted fur also tend to attract fleas and ticks. By getting your pet professionally groomed, you're ensuring your pet's internal and external health.
What does the grooming process include?
We offer professional grooming for all breeds of pets seven days a week. Our team includes two full-time groomers and a grooming assistant. Pets visiting our groomers get the full, deluxe treatment. First, they receive a thorough brush out to remove all of the dead undercoat. Next, the groomer does a rough trim and shapes the coat. If it's necessary, your pet will also be shaved down at this stage. Afterward, we give your pet a pedicure (nail trim) and an ear cleaning. Then it is bath time, where we provide a massage to go along with the shampooing process. If necessary, your dog will have their anal glands externally expressed while they are in the tub. Finally, we dry your pet's coat, and the groomer finishes the style, completing the finishing touches.
How often should my pet be groomed?
Some of our patients opt for the weekly brush-out and have short visits to keep their style beautiful. We also offer flea baths or special medicated baths. If your pet has special grooming needs, just let us know so we may accommodate them. Pet grooming can have many additional health benefits to your pet besides the usual ‘beauty parlor' look and smell. Remember also that an ‘unkept' animal may be a sign that the animal is not well and should be examined by one of our veterinarians.
