Grooming is an important part of pet care. Depending on the breed, age,and health of your pet, grooming may even need to be a part of you and your pet’s daily routine. Many breeds require less grooming than this, but regular grooming always helps to keep your pet healthy and comfortable. Some breeds don't shed their hair effectively (eg. Poodles) and require grooming by a professional every 6-8 weeks. Long haired cats can particularly benefit from regular grooming as it helps prevent the formation of knots on the skin and hairballs in the stomach. Ideally your pet should not be bathed more than once a week unless directed to by the Veterinarian. Always use a soap free pet shampoo.
Our Professional Grooming Services
We offer coat clipping using a light sedation and reversal for the more sensitive pets (ie. geriatric, aggressive pets) and pets with severely matted coats. Our coat clips are done purely in the best interest of the pet and are not for cosmetic reasons.
Our professional grooming service has many specialised grooming tools like curry brushes, clippers, stripping combs, slicker brushes, rakes and dryers. These tools enable us to tailor the grooming service to the particular needs of your pet, for an overall optimum result.
Grooming at Home
We encourage you to also engage in regular grooming with your pet at home. There are numerous benefits of regular grooming, for example:
Decreased chance of skin problems
Optimal skin cleanliness and comfort for you and your pet
Improved monitoring of health issues like cuts, heat, swelling, lameness, or changes in temperament.
Enhanced behavioural routines with obedient submission during grooming periods
Closer bonding with your pet through regular contact
