Pet grooming at Alpine Animal Doctors

Our services extend further than our superb clinical and surgical facilities. We can also keep your precious pooch or your cherished cat looking gorgeous.

In our ‘beauty salon’ our trained beauticians can give your pet a thorough makeover that includes trimming their claws, a cut and clip for a sensational new ‘hair style’ as well as a thorough ‘shampoo and blow wave’ in our hydrobath facility.

Seriously, while it’s true that your fur babies will come out of our grooming area looking fresh and clean there is a much more practical reason to keep your pets well groomed, and to have that grooming done at the clinic.

Not everybody has the time to do it at home but it’s important for their overall health to keep pets, particularly those with long-haired coats, clean and correctly clipped, and to ensure their claws don’t grow too long. Long, matted coats can hide a multitude of problems, from skin conditions to grass seeds burrowing their way into your pet’s skin and leading to possible infection.

Our nurses are trained to not only give your pet a thorough bathe and groom they also know how to choose the most suitable grooming products, are trained to recognise any potential underlying skin problems, to spot ticks and to check for any ear infections that might be hidden under that long, shaggy coat. Our standard hydrobath service includes an ear clean, a nail trim and an anal gland check. Any lumps, bumps or anything unusual spotted by our vet nurses that might impact on your pet’s future health are noted and referred to the client if they feel your pet might need to see Dr. Bek.

Grooming services are not expensive and a regular session can be genuinely beneficial to your pet’s health and wellbeing. To book please call the hospital.
