Dog & Cat Grooming FAQs

  • What do grooming services include?

    During a grooming session, we can provide a combination of the following services depending on your pet's needs:

    • Bathing: shampoo & conditioning
    • Nail trimming & grinding
    • Teeth brushing
    • Breed-specific haircuts
    • De-shedding treatments
    • Ear cleaning
    • Brushing & de-matting
    • Full haircuts
  • Why should I have my pet professionally groomed?

    While you have the option of taking on the responsibility and time commitment of grooming your pet yourself, there are a few compelling reasons to hire a professional groomer.

    They have the right tools.

    Professional groomers have access to a variety of grooming tools, including clippers and specialty skin products, as well as adjustable grooming tables and bathtubs designed specifically for pets. They also have a variety of specialty shampoos on hand for cats and dogs with allergies, skin irritations, fleas, ticks, and even skunk-sprayed pets.

    They have plenty of experience handling dogs and cats.

    Professional groomers are well-versed in keeping your cat or dog safe while being groomed. They've worked with senior animals, animals with behavioral issues, and more.

    They take care of the unsavory tasks.

    When it comes to cleaning and grooming our pets, no matter how much we love them, there are some tasks that are far from pleasurable. A professional groomer will handle everything from shampooing muddy or skunked dogs to removing fleas and ticks and cleaning anal glands with the utmost care – so you don't have to.

  • How often should I have my pet groomed?

    Grooming sessions should be done on a regular basis depending on your pet's breed, hair length, and coat type. In most cases, once a month should be sufficient.

  • How long does a grooming session take?

    The length of a grooming session is determined by the size of your pet as well as the type and length of his or her coat. It also depends on the types of grooming services required. Most grooming sessions at our hospital last between one and two hours.

  • How much does grooming cost?

    The cost of grooming varies depending on your pet's breed and size, and the type of coat they have. If your pet has any significant behavioral issues, that can also have an effect on the cost. For a more accurate estimate, please contact us for a consultation.

  • What are the health benefits of professional grooming?

    Grooming is essential for keeping your pet clean and healthy. This task can get rid of shed fur that has stuck to your dog's coat, as well as fleas, mats, and ticks. Other health problems can also be slowed or avoided.

    Mats can cause knots in your pet's hair, which can cause pain and discomfort. Brushing your dog's coat will also make it shine. To prevent curling and germ invasion, their nails should also be trimmed.

    Early detection of skin infections or problems is critical for your pet's health, and your groomer will be aware of what to look for. Even the most conscientious owner may miss any inflammations, new lumps, infections, rashes, or lesions. Groomers may also detect an underlying issue, and the sooner these problems are identified and treated, the better.

  • How do your groomers handle fearful or aggressive pets?

    Our groomer has spent a lot of time working with stressed, anxious, or irritated animals. Sedation during the grooming session may be recommended if the animal is particularly fearful or aggressive. But our groomer can usually handle your pet by following these steps:

    • A quiet, peaceful environment

    • Offering treats

    • Frequent breaks

    • Opening a window or playing music

    • Asking a dog to do something it knows (like 'sit' or 'shake')

Bathing Services

Shampooing, nail trimming, ear cleaning, and anal gland extraction are all included in our bathing services, as well as blow-drying and brushing.

We use all natural, luxury, high quality pet products from iGroom to keep your pet looking and smelling their best!

Benefits of Bathing

Bathing cats and dogs on a regular basis has a number of sanitary and dermatological advantages. Bathing can:

  • Remove dirt & odor for cleaner skin and coat
  • Soften and condition the coat
  • Reduce shedding
  • Help treat and reduce symptoms of any allergies & skin conditions
  • Help us monitor your pet's health
