Finn Hill Animal Hospital believes that pet grooming is an integral part of the pet healthcare process. Grooming is more than just pampering, or adding a fancy bow. It is a chance to observe the overall condition of your pet’s hair, skin, eyes and nails, and to remove any harmful dirt, germs, ticks or lice that may be present.

For pets that spend time outdoors, regular baths help remove harmful germs, pebbles and thorns from their fur and paws. Since fleas, ticks, and parasites can also wreak havoc on your pet’s health, our groomer has an excellent opportunity to search for any of these problems during the course of bathing your pet. It also provides an occasion for the groomer to notice and treat dried or cracked paw pads and observe other skin conditions. A groomer is likely to be the first to notice any scratches, skin irritations, rashes, or infections, and can refer you to our veterinarian for further care.

Some Of The Services We Offer Include

Our pet groomers use the most up-to-date products and equipment in providing grooming for cats and dogs. Some Of The Services We Offer:

Haircuts: Many pets have hair that grows and needs to be trimmed regularly. This keeps the hair from getting matted or knotted, and prevents it from growing into your pet’s eyes or ears.

Ear Care: Certain breeds are particularly prone to ear problems and odors, and need to have them checked and cleaned regularly. Our pet groomers will look for any signs of infection, wax buildup, ear mites, yeast and fungus.

Bathing: Regular bathing can help your pet’s skin and coat remain in good condition. It removes dirt and fecal matter that has accumulated, and prevents the build-up of unpleasant odors. Our pet groomers use only shampoos that are specifically created for dogs and cats.

Nail Care: Overgrown nails can be quite painful for your pet, and are more likely to break, split or be torn away.

Brushing: A professional brushing can remove loose hair, reduce shedding, improve circulation and make your pet look healthier.

Our pet groomers are gentle and caring, able to calm even the most skittish of pets. Every session starts with an overall assessment of your pet’s exterior health to look for anything that needs attention. The length of a grooming session depends on your pet’s breed and the services requested. A nail trim might only take 15 minutes, for example, while a full shampoo and cut for a large, long-haired breed could take 3-4 hours. Our groomer will provide an estimate of time so that you can plan accordingly.

The best part of grooming for cats and dogs at Finn Hill Animal Hospital is that most pets seem to appreciate the spa-style attention. After seeing so many happy dogs and cats leave our grooming area, we know that a good bath and brush makes your pet feel great, and adds tremendously to his or her well-being.
