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.
Our Professional Grooming Services
We offer a range of grooming services from full clips to hydrobath facilites for dogs of all breeds and even cats where needed. Our groomer Katelyn is happy to tailor the grooming to meet your personal preferences when it comes to your pooch's style.
All dogs booked in for grooming (whether having a hair cut or just a bath) will also have their nails trimmed, ears cleaned and anal glands expressed as part of the service, and can be either towel dried or blow dried according to your preference.
For dogs that require sedation to be safely groomed, the vets on site can arrange suitable sedation after a thorough physical exam.
Grooming appointments are available on Mondays through to Thursdays. Call us on (03) 9877 3999 to make an appointment for your pet. It is best to book well in advance to avoid disappointment, especially during the warmer months when our groomer is at their busiest.
So come and visit or make an appointment today.
