Grooming is an important part of pet care.
Depending on the breed, age and health of your pet, grooming may need to be a part of your pets daily routine. Some breeds require more grooming than others to keep them healthy and comfortable. We recommended that breeds that do not shed their hair effectively (eg. Poodles) get groomed by a professional every 6-8 weeks.
Grooming is not just for dogs, Some cats may also require our assistance when it comes to grooming. Long haired cats often benefit from regular grooming as it helps to prevent the formation of knots on the skin and also reduces the chance of your cat ingesting fur that can become a hair ball in the stomach.
Pam the groomer has even been known to offer her grooming services to those rabbits and guinea pigs unable to groom themselves effectively.
