Pet Grooming

Routine pet grooming is essential to your pet's hygiene and health. Washing and brushing your pet helps to keep matted fur from developing. Severely matted dogs lack insulation from the heat or cold  because air cannot circulate through their coats of fur. It is recommended that pets be groomed once a month, or sometimes more frequently if needed.

Our grooming facility provides the following services:

Pet Grooming Tips:

  • Start your pet at a young age so that they learn to enjoy the grooming experience
  • Play with puppies and kittens paws from an early age, you can even start clipping the tips so they get used to it.
  • Brush your pet daily
  • Clean paws off after coming in when it is wet or snowy outside
  • Groom professionally every 6-8 weeks
  • Do not use people shampoo on your pets.  It can dry the hair coat out.
  • Do not bathe excessively, this too can dry the hair coat out.
  • If you notice matting in your pets coat, try and get it out as soon as possible.  Matting can lead to skin sores.
  • Proper nutrition is key to a healthy shiny coat.
  • Get to know your groomer.  Ask what you can do at home to help make the grooming experience enjoyable for your pet.

This is the life! I love being groomed at Minster Veterinary Services

In order to protect the other animals here for grooming and/or boarding, we require all animals who come in to be groomed to have current, up to date vaccinations. If your pet is overdue, you may schedule this to be done while your pet is here to be groomed. If your pet is not a current patient of ours, please bring records of his or her vaccinations. Thank you for understanding the importance we place on keeping your pets vaccinated.
