Grooming

Veterinary Supervised Grooming

We are currently searching for a Dog Groomer to join our team!  In the mean time, we are only able to offer cat grooming.

Tired of pet hair on your clothing and furniture?  Is your furry friend matted?  Regular grooming removes loose hair to reduce both shedding and the formation of mats.  Matting is not only ugly, it can be very painful for your pet and promote skin diseases.  A clean, healthy coat promotes both good looks and healthy skin.

Falconbridge Animal Hospital is pleased to have an experienced groomer on staff. His years of experience include grooming a large variety of sizes and breeds of dogs.  Grooms includes a bath, hair cut, nail trim and an ear cleaning.

All types of cuts are available.  Your pet is also welcome to come in for a bath with nail trim and ear cleaning to freshen up between hair cuts or if your pet does not require hair cuts.

He was shaved down to remove all of the mats.

Now you can tell just by his face that Dexter is a miniature schnauzer!

We ask that pets being groomed be dropped off between 7:30 and 8:00 a.m.  The groomer will meet with you to discuss what you would like done.  Pets are normally ready to go home between 4:00 and 5:00 p.m.

Since your pet will be staying with us for the day, vaccinations must be up to date.

Not all cat grooms are a shave down.  Sometimes it is necessary to shave a pet that is severely matted or has certain skin problems.  And some cats need to be shaved because they will not tolerate having even small mats brushed out.  Once the problem has been corrected, regular grooming can be beneficial for keeping the skin healthy and preventing matting.

Regular grooming helps Cadi (picture here to the right and left), to stay looking her best.  The natural oils in some cat's coats can accumulate, giving them a greasy look as seen in Cadi's white bib as pictured on the left.  While these oils help keep them dry in rain or snow, our indoor only cats don't need nature's waterproofing.  Regular bathing also helps remove loose and shedding fur, reducing the hair shed in your home, and keeps the skin healthy.
