At Glenvale Veterinary Clinic, we offer the following basic grooming services for dogs and cats:
- Complete shaving
- Combing out knots or mats
- Sedation for the above as required
If you would like to have your pet assessed and quoted for a clip, then please contact the clinic. Mats can be unpleasant for your cat or dog and, if left untended for too long, can have serious health implications. Severe mats will generally need to be shaved, as brushing will only pull live hairs out with the dead ones, causing much pain to your pet.
In dogs, both the undercoat and topcoat can become matted, and in extreme cases, can even cut off blood supply to your pet’s extremities. Debris and parasites may also become lodged in the fur, irritating the skin.
To ensure a healthy coat and skin for your pet, just contact us at Glenvale Veterinary Clinic and we’ll do what we can to help.
