Pet Grooming FAQs

What Happens During a Grooming Session?

A bath is the first step in the grooming process. We may use medicated shampoo as part of this step. The shampoo can relieve allergies and is sensitive to your pet's skin needs. Your pet will be combed and shaved based on its needs. Nail trimming is next. Trimming your pet's nails keeps you and other pets safe. Your pet may also need anal gland expression. This process can help your pet stay hygienic and comfortable.

When Should Pets Get Groomed for the First Time?

Each pet is different, but vets often recommend grooming at about three or four months old. A young cat or dog can learn to enjoy the grooming sessions if they go to the groomer when they are young. Some owners worry that their pets are too old for grooming, but this is not necessarily the case. Older pets often need more care because they may not be able to groom themselves the way they used to. Speak with your groomer to learn more about the different ways we can ease your pet's anxiety.

How Often Should Pets Be Groomed?

Every pet is different. If you are unsure how often to bring your pet in for grooming, we can provide an accurate assessment. Some things, like nail trimming, may need to occur more frequently than bathing and brushing.

How Much Does Pet Grooming Cost?

Pet grooming costs will vary based on the services you require and the kind of pet you have. Our veterinarians can provide more information about the prices.
