We use to do up to 30 grooms a day a decade ago! Now being so busy with surgery & CT cases, even though the same staff are still present, we now only do the old-timer grooming patients and recommend our clients to call around the many local and excellant groomers. Thank you for your understanding.
What is involved in Grooming?
We provide a professional grooming service, where your pet is pampered for the day. A full groom starts with a general coat length clip or scissor to the length you desire. If you are unsure, we can advise you on what would be appropriate, given the breed, coat length and time of year. Their ears are cleaned, plucked and nails trimmed. Pets then have a relaxing warm-water bubble bath with a veterinary quality shampoo and conditioner, selected for their current coat condition, or a medicated shampoo if advised by the vets. After rinsing, massaging & towel drying, they are brushed out, whilst gently blow dried with our special low-heat safety dryers. They are returned for a final scissoring, style and touch up before a fragranced cologne is brushed through. You may find they go home with a special coat, bandana, bow or ribbon carefully selected from our huge range by the groomers and nurses, depending on what they feel matched their personality and colour on the day!
Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.
At what age can they start?
Introducing your pet from a young age, 12 weeks onwards, will help establish the entire grooming experience as an enjoyable day out, just as they learn to trust our staff in puppy preschool.
To help promote healthy coats & skin, small breeds will on average come in every 6-8wks, and have their grooming tailored especially to their needs. They do not always need a full clip, sometimes partial or trimming only, or simply to freshen up with a slow bath, massage and blow drying. Depending on the breed, some larger, longer coat dogs will come in for summer and tick clips twice a year, spring and summer.
Our groomers and nurses combine to pamper your pet for the day. For all the love and loyalty the little ones give, a spa day away is just what they deserve!
Shampoos & Pampering Products
We stock a large range of specially formulated pet shampoo, conditioner, leave on products and colognes.
As dogs have different skin to humans, soap-free range cleanses without irritating or stripping the natural oils or flea prevention products from the coat.
Medicated shampoo and specialized soothing sensitive skin shampoos are also available for itchy, dry or infected skin.
Your pet will be left smelling beautifully of fragrances such as Chamomile & Coconut, Cedar wood & Lavender, Avocado & Jojoba and Oatmeal, Apple & Apricot!
Gift packs are also available, so you can continue the spa day experience at home!!
Please ask our vet nurses which product is best suited for your pet.
