Before Your Pet’s Grooming Appointment
As a precaution, any pets that come to us for grooming (or boarding) must be examined by one of our veterinary assistants. This allows us to screen your pet for underlying health problems that one of our veterinarians may need to address.
The Benefits of Grooming and De-Shedding
Damaged or infected skin and a dirty, matted coat can lead to all kinds of health problems for pets. From painful irritation to parasites and skin disorders, your pet’s skin is their first defense against bacterial infections and other harmful conditions. A well-groomed pet can avoid these issues and also feel more comfortable in their daily life.
Furthermore, failing to remove your pet’s undercoat can interfere with their ability to stay warm or cool during extreme weather. De-shedding fixes this problem and also reduces hairballs in cats, and overall shedding in dogs.
Pick-Up and Drop-Off
You are more than welcome to drop off your pet for their grooming appointment in the morning, and come by at the end of the day to pick them up. If you need help getting your pet to our facility, you can contact us in advance and arrange for pick-up and drop-off through our Caremobile service.
