While you may choose to take on the responsibility and time commitment of grooming your pet yourself, there are a few good reasons to have the job done by a professional groomer:
Professional groomers have a wide range of grooming tools at their disposal, from various clippers and specialty skin products, to adjustable grooming tables and bathtubs designed specifically for pets. They also keep a selection of specialty shampoos on hand for cats and dogs with allergies, skin irritations, fleas and ticks, and even for dogs that have been sprayed by skunks.
Professional groomers know what to do to keep your cat or dog safe during grooming. They are experienced in handling seniors, animals with behavioral issues, and more.
No matter how much we love our pets, when it comes to cleaning and grooming them, there are certain tasks that are far from pleasant. From shampooing muddy or skunked dogs to removing fleas and ticks and cleaning anal glands, a professional groomer will get the yucky stuff done with a minimum of fuss – so you don't have to.
The proper frequency of grooming sessions depends on your pet's breed, hair length, and coat type. In most cases, though, regular grooming should be done about once a month.
The duration of a grooming session depends on the size of your pet, and the coat type and length. It also depends on what types of services are required to groom them. That said, most grooming sessions at our hospital take between one and two hours.
The cost of grooming varies depending on your pet's breed and size, and on the type of coat they have. Whether your pet has any significant behavioral issues can also affect the cost. For a better idea of cost, please contact us for an estimate.
Our groomers have spent many hours handling stressed, anxious, or aggravated animals. In cases where the animal is especially fearful or aggressive, sedation during the grooming session may be recommended. Most of the time, though, our groomer can manage the animal with the following 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')
Our bathing services are available daily, and include a shampooing, nail trim, ear cleaning, and anal gland extraction, as well as blow drying and brushing.
There are several sanitary and dermatological benefits to regular bathing sessions for cats and dogs. Bathing:
