Washing and Grooming

Grooming is an important part of pet care. Depending on the breed, age, and health of your pet, grooming may even need to be a part of you and your pet’s daily routine. Many breeds require less grooming than this, but regular grooming always helps to keep your pet healthy and comfortable.  Some breeds don't shed their hair effectively (eg. Poodles) and require grooming by a professional every 6-8 weeks. Long haired cats can particularly benefit from regular grooming as it helps prevent the formation of knots on the skin and hairballs in the stomach.

Grooming Services

We offer a hydrobath service for dogs of all sizes and breeds.  We will use the appropriate shampoo and condition for your pets skin type and condition.

We offer cat clips under sedation for a fear free experience.  Our cat clips are done with clippers not scissors.  See the images below for the results of our cat clip.  We do not offer other types of cat clips.

This is a kitty following his groom. The head, tail and "socks" are left.  The rest of the body is short.


 

We also offer medical grooming for dogs such as bum clips, matts, hot spots and long hair around the eyes.

So come and visit or make an appointment today.


Grooming at Home

We encourage you to also engage in regular grooming with your pet at home. There are numerous benefits of regular grooming, for example:

  • Decreased chance of skin problems
  • Optimal skin cleanliness and comfort for you and your pet
  • Improved monitoring of health issues like cuts, heat, swelling, lameness, or changes in temperament.
  • Enhanced behavioural routines with obedient submission during grooming periods
  • Closer bonding with your pet through regular contact
