We offer complete professional grooming for all breeds of dogs and cats at our clinic.
How often should you groom your pet?
Certain breeds, especially those with long and/or curly hair that mats/tangles easily need to be groomed more often. The frequency with which your pet will need professional grooming will also depend on the amount of grooming you are able to do yourself at home! Give us a call and we can help you to figure out what the best grooming schedule might be for your pet.
Do I need to get my cat professionally groomed?
The short answer is: generally, no. Cats are usually very good at keeping themselves clean. If you notice that your cat isn’t grooming itself as much anymore, or is developing mats and/or a greasy coat, they may need an appointment with the vet! This can be an early sign that something isn’t right with your kitty. Most cats get by very well with regular brushing at home. Long-haired cats can sometimes benefit from lion cuts if you are finding that you are unable to keep their coat free of mats. Cats also require regular nail trims.
What are mats?
Mats are solid and tight knots of fur that form when our pets aren’t brushed enough. We also frequently see people using the wrong tools for grooming! Slicker brushes are a great grooming tool, but we often need to use combs as well. The most common places we see mats are on the legs of dogs and the tummy of cats – most dogs don’t like their legs getting brushed and most cats aren’t too keen on having their tummies brushed!
Who is our groomer?
Vikie! We are so lucky to have welcomed Vikie to the clinic as our groomer in April 2019. She is very talented and has been an excellent addition to our team. She has experience with dogs of all breeds and sizes and takes special care with each and every pup! We love her cheerful attitude and the dogs do, too! Even the most nervous pets are comfortable with Vikie.
*Please contact the clinic directly for pricing inquiries, as prices will vary depending on your fur baby’s size and coat condition.
Why is grooming important?
Regular brushing helps remove dead hair, mats, and dirt. 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. And sometimes, we genuinely feel that our pets deserve a nice day at the spa!
