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 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.

 

Hydrobath Service

 

We have a hydrobath and dryer which you can use to wash your pet. Using a hydrobath is easy for you and easy on your pet. We can supply shampoo and towels if you prefer, or you may choose to bring your own, especially if your pet requires a special medicated shampoo for a dermatological condition.

If you wish, you can leave your dog with us and we can do the bath for you - perfect if your busy day doesn't allow time for you to wash your dog. 

Please phone us on 95895159 if you wish to use our hydrobath services so we can arrange a suitable time.

 

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
