Washing and Grooming

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 regular 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.

Professional Grooming Services

Taryn from "Creative Canines" is unfortunately no longer at our clinic on Thursdays and Fridays. Both her and her husband Derek are still highly recommended however so be sure to make the trip to their salon located in Main Street, Pittsworth. 

Taryn's professional grooming service has many specialised grooming tools to enable her to tailor the grooming service to the particular needs of your pet. She specialises in breed style clips, creative colouring and grooming nervous and problem dogs. All grooms include: warm bath and flea rinse, conditioner, blow-dry and brush, nail clip and ear clean.

Please call the salon on 0437924897, or the mobile van on 0409 800 159 to make an appointment or visit the website, www.creativek9s.net,  for more information

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

In clinic grooming

We currently don't offer a regular in house bathing/grooming service as believe it should be left to the professionals in their field, but if you are looking for a groomer please don't hesitate to contact us as we can point you in the right direction to a few different local groomers. We do stock medicated, allergy and natural shampoos and conditioners along with advice on your at home use. 

We do provide in-house medical washes for pets requiring a medicated bath along with basic clipping services for cats and dogs that require sedation. Please contact us for further information.
