We have a talent for putting your dog or cat at ease during our grooming service.
At Plaza Veterinary Hospital, we believe that the furry members of our Burlington, North Carolina community deserve “spa days”, too! With our grooming service, your dog or cat can enjoy personal attention and you get back a pet that looks and smells wonderful. While you have plenty of choices when it comes to a grooming service, we recommend considering us because your pet will also benefit from our veterinary expertise. Our groomers are trained to watch for health concerns or any abnormalities that could be an indication of a health problem.
Our grooming service is very affordable. For cats, we offer a set price for a full shave or lion cut, and prices for dog grooming are based on weight. Our dog grooming service includes a bath, nail trim, ear cleaning, and anal expression. For cats, there are additional services you can choose, including sedation for anxious cats, a bath, and nail caps.
Since we work with dogs and cats all day long, we have developed a talent for putting them at ease for their grooming service. The vast majority seem to look forward to seeing us and getting pampered, like you probably feel when you head to the spa. It can be a great experience for them and for you.
If you have any questions about our grooming service or would like to schedule an appointment, don’t hesitate to reach out to us. We would love to show you what we can do for your pet and how much happier and healthier they’ll look and feel after a full grooming experience.
FAQs About Our Grooming Service
We at Plaza Veterinary Hospital offer pet grooming services as part of our commitment to helping you keep your pets healthy and happy. We have received many questions about pet grooming over the years, and we have put together the answers to some of our most frequently asked examples below for you to check out.
What do pet grooming services include?
Our pet grooming services are tailored to the needs of the individual pets. For example, our standard cat grooming services include either a shave or a lion cut, while our dog grooming services include a bath, nail trim, ear cleaning, and anal expression. In addition, we also offer optional cat grooming services such as baths, nail caps, or even sedation for anxious cats.
Why is pet grooming important?
We encourage every pet owner to groom their pet regularly to ensure that their coat remains beautiful and healthy—not only does brushing your pet’s fur prevent it from becoming matted (and in turn prevent mats from causing skin abrasions or ulcers), but it also helps build the bond of trust between you and encourages positive behavior. In addition, having your pet regularly groomed by professionals allows you to keep a closer eye on their health, as groomers will be able to spot potential health problems early on.
What should I do to prepare my pet for their trip to the groomer?
There are several things you can do to help your pet prepare for and remain calm during grooming services. First, we encourage you to brush your pet regularly at home, so they become used to this type of interaction. Second, it’s a good idea to put your pet’s carrier in the open a few days before your scheduled grooming appointment, as this allows them time to acclimate to it (this is especially important for cats). Third, discuss your pet’s needs with the groomer ahead of time to help make sure your pet can have the most positive experience.
