When should my pet have its first
Questions We Frequently Receive
Grooming on your pet should start at about 10 weeks of age (after second vaccination), to let your pet become acquainted with the sounds of the grooming salon, noises such as dryers and other dogs. These exposures started early will help your pet to acclimate to the grooming environment. The first 6 months of life for a dog is almost like 5 years for a human. It is important to begin early. After a while your pet will take everything around him or her in stride and make it a normal experience and not a traumatic one.
Once your pet is comfortable with grooming and it's sounds, regular grooming should be performed every 2 months.
When should my pet have its first professional grooming?
How much will it cost to groom my pet?
Grooming rates vary depending on the breed of your pet, the condition
of his or her coat what type of temperament the pet has and
the type of services you choose.
All these factors play a part in pricing, along with what type of style can be done on the dog versus what the owners want. Some owners want a longer style,but if your pet is matted this will be almost impossible and very painful for your pet to attempt to brush out. In order to do a long style the pet has to be maintained with proper brushing in between groomings. So without seeing the dog, and its condition of coat we can only estimate the cost to a specific range.
How often should my pet be groomed?
That depends on the type of pet and the condition of
the coat. A good general time period is anywhere between 4
and 8 weeks. Many people have their pet groomed every other week or even every
week to help combat odors and shedding around the home.
How long will it take to groom my pet?
We try to schedule your pets grooming as best as possible. We use approximate times for you to bring your pet in. Usually, the earlier you arrive, the earlier we can return your pet to you.
Do you bathe cats?
Yes, we do bathe cats. We also groom cats. The
cat should be comfortable with grooming. The skin on a
cat is very thin and can be cut rather easily. If your cat
is not comfortable with grooming and you still would like them groomed
or shaved we can refer you to
Do you use special shampoos?
We have a variety of shampoos. Which one we use is
based upon your pet's skin. We first bathe your pet to get all of the
dirt out of the coat and then second one will be with one of our special
shampoos if needed.
Do you do teeth cleaning?
We do teeth brushing we don't clean teeth. If you pet has a lot of plaque on their teeth and their gums are red and appear irritated, they should be seen by a veterinarian.
Do you use heated drying cages?
No. In fact, we believe these devices should not be
used in any
Our Groomers hand-dry pets after they have been bathed. This
requires brushing out the coat to remove shedding hair, while blowing it
dry with equipment similar to your home vacuum cleaner although in reverse
and larger in volume of course. When the pet's coat is almost completely dry, he
or she is put into a holding compartment to rest. A high volume of
room temperature air is circulated through that
compartment. We never heat the circulating
air. Do you tranquilize pets before
