What are the required vaccinations/treatment for grooming?

Animals dropped off with fleas or other parasites will be treated for an additional charge.
What is the earliest that my pet can be groomed?
What are your recommendations for before and after a trip to the groomers?
– Before going to the groomers, take your dog for a walk so that they can relieve themselves and try not to feed them immediately beforehand.
– Since pets are often stressed at the groomers, toys, and treats will most likely be ignored. The best thing to do is bring them to the groomers and leave as quickly and efficiently as possible—if your dog senses your anxiety, they will have a harder time calming down for the grooming.
– Please wait until the grooming is complete to interact with your dog to avoid distracting your dog, and making them anxious or excited.
Why does my pet scratch themselves after they are groomed?
When you first start bringing your pet in for grooming, they may scratch themselves afterward. Similarly to people shaving, your pet might be slightly uncomfortable after the first few experiences. Scratching may also occur if your pet had extremely matted fur prior to grooming, which would require a closer shave and thus more irritated skin. Owners should brush their pet’s hair regularly to prevent the need for a close shave.
