Regular grooming is essential to the maintenance of your pet's health. Keep your pet smelling and looking attractive, prevent parasites, and skin irritations.
While grooming should be done on a consistent basis, the frequency to which your pet needs to be groomed will depend somewhat on daily routines, coat type, age, and general health. In addition, your pet will benefit from regular brushing to remove any loose hairs and dead skin cells, to rid the coat of debris and external parasites, and to disseminate skin oils that form along the hair shafts.
Treat your pet to a luxurious bath. Our special cleansing bath removes dirt, debris, and that doggie pet odor. Your pet will feel fresh and revitalized. Services also include ear cleaning, nail trim, and expressing anal sacs as needed.
Gentle Care Animal Hospital offers therapeutic bathing. Are you aware all ‘medicated shampoos’ are not the same? Our doctors will prescribe the correct medicated shampoo for your pet’s skin condition. Most medicated baths need to be preceded by a regular grooming bath. Did you know a medicated shampoo must be massaged into the skin for at least 15 minutes to be effective? Eliminate the hassle, let us do it for you!
Is your pet having a bad hair day, or does it need a trim for the hot summer? We also have grooming available. And if your pet is staying with us anyway, why not get them a trim while they're here?
We can assist in recommending the proper tools to use for your pet's coat type. If your pet suffers from allergies, our veterinarian may prescribe regular bathing as part of the treatment routine. Be sure to notify us of any special needs your pet may require such as specific shampoos or eye care and bring any of these products with you to your appointment. Please schedule your pet's appointment in advance, especially during the warmer summer months and near the holiday seasons. We are happy to offer the following services to assist in the health and maintenance of your pet:
