HAND STRIPPING – This specialized grooming procedure involves pulling out the dead outer coat of wired-haired or “rough-coated” breeds by hand, rather than cutting the hair with clippers. This allows a new “harsh” wire coat to grow in.

This service is recommended to be done every four weeks. Costs and time required vary based on dog’s hair coat quality, groom frequency and temperament.

DE-SHEDDING TREATMENT – One of the best things you can do for your pet (and yourself)! If your pet has long, thick hair or even short, coarse hair, our groomers can help you. We use a formulated hypo-allergenic shampoo and conditioner which helps to relax the hair follicle and release any undercoat your pet may be shedding. It doesn’t stop there! Our de-shedding treatment also helps detangle mats. Our shampoo and conditioner are rich in Omega-3 fatty acids to reduce shedding and promote a healthy skin and coat. We finish with a thorough forced air blow dry and deep brushing to remove as much hair as possible. Your pet will feel lighter and fluffier and you will see a dramatic reduction in the amount of shedding noted at home.

NAIL FILING – instead of traditional nail trimming with nail trimmers, our groomers will use a Dremel tool and nail files to smooth and shorten your pet’s nails painlessly and effectively.

RESTORATIVE PAW PAD TREATMENT – This service features a revolutionary formula for dogs and cats that will strengthen and repair dry damaged coat and heal cracked paw pads.

SCOOPING THE PAW PADS – This service removes the excess hair between the paw pads to allow for better traction. This service can be added on to our Bath Only package.

ORAL CARE PACKAGE – Teeth are cleaned with enzymatic toothpaste that prevents plaque build-up & freshens breath for a healthier smile. If you have your own toothpaste and toothbrush for your pet, bring it with you and we’ll do the rest!

ORAL RINSE – A great add-on to our Oral Care Package. This antiseptic rinse will leave your pet’s breath fresh and clean after his or her spa day.

ANAL GLAND EXPRESSION – For those pets that have problems expressing their own anal glands. If they tend to scoot their bottoms on the floor or pay a lot of attention to their back end, they may need a little help expressing their anal glands. Our grooming staff can do external anal gland expressions. Internal anal gland expressions are available through our Veterinary Services.
