We offer grooming for all breeds of dogs and cats that medically require it at our clinic. Certain breeds—especially those with long hair that mats easily—may need assistance keeping themselves clean. Animals that are older or have physical disabilities may have difficulty grooming themselves. 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. We know how to keep your pet calm during grooming, so if a bath or nail trim is normally stressful, you can let us take care of those responsibilities so you—and your pet—can relax. 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 also teach you techniques to help keep your pet well-groomed. And feel free to ask for a product recommendation or browse our pet-safe shampoos, conditioners, and other grooming products in our reception area.
