Grooming

We offer a full grooming and hydrobath service.
The hydrobath delivers a steady stream of high pressure water through the coat, which dislodges deep dirt, dead hair, crusts and scabs.  This system is great for removal of crusts, scabs and scale, especially in dense coated animals.  Unlike a conventional home-bath the dog does not sit in a tub full of water, and the animal can walk directly into the bath without lifting.

Reasons for a hydrobath you might not have thought of...

  • arthritic animals don't have to be lifted up and down, don't have to sit in cold water, and can be dried afterwards.
  • skin disease, hydrobaths are great for removing crusts, scabs and scale
  • we can do the medicated wash, you're not stuck holding your wet dog for 10 minutes while the medicated shampoo does its' job
  • it's just nice to get rid of unpleasant smells and dirt.  We know a lot of dogs live inside, but we aren't to keen about the 'doggy smell' on the bed, furniture or in the car! (Let's not forget cleaning that hair out of the sinkhole!)

Grooming may include

  • full body clipping
  • stripping (combing) out dead and loose coat
  • thinning the coat (cutting and brushing feathering)
  • trimming feet and face

The right type of grooming depends on what type of dog you have.  Our staff can advise you.

All dogs in for grooming recieve a hydrobath and nail clipping.  Dogs require washing when groomed to loosen dead fur.  Please let us know if you require additional services from the veterinarians such as checking anal glands, a physical examination by a veyerinarian or removing grass seeds.
