Grooming is available Monday through Friday by appointment. Your pet can have a groom, bath, and even nails trimmed all in one trip. As if that wasn’t convenient enough, the doctors at Paragould Animal Clinic can provide any medical care or veterinary services while your pet is with us for the day. We also offer sedation grooming for those pets that just aren’t crazy about getting a spa treatment!
Your pet is very important to us here at Paragould Animal Clinic. We would like to assure you that every effort will be made to make your pet’s grooming experience as safe and pleasant as possible.
WHAT TO EXPECT AT YOUR VISIT
So your little or big friend is being groomed today? A large portion of the general public believes grooming is just putting the pet in the bath tub, drying and running a clipper over them and then *poof* the grooming is complete. This could not be further from the truth. While your pet is being worked on, his ears will be checked and any excess hair will be removed to help prevent ear infections. If the ears require veterinary help to treat an infection you will be advised of this prior to treatment. Also, your pets nails will be trimmed and filed down. Hard hair and dirt between the paw pads will be removed for your pet’s comfort. A sanitary clip will also be done to help your pet’s hygiene. We also express anal glands and have the veterinary technicians here to help us on the pets that are more difficult to express.This is only a brief summary of what your pet’s day at the groomers entails. And of course no pet leaves without the finishing touches like a bow or bandana and cologne!
Please understand that when giving a price on the phone it is only an estimate. Prices are based on breed, type of coat (short, long, thick, etc), size, pets behavior (ease of grooming), if it needs to be sedated, what condition their coat is in, their vaccination status, and if there are any parasites present such as ticks or fleas that have to be removed.
We ask you to show consideration by notifying our office if you are unable to keep an appointment. We would like to have the option to offer that appointment to another customer who needs their pet groomed.
If you are going to be late for your appointment pease call to let us know.
Repeated missed appointments may result in no more grooming appointments.
Not a client of ours? No worries! Although, we do like to get to know every client and their pets, we do not require that you bring your pet here for their veterinary needs just to use our groomers! However we do have requirements which are listed below.
Requirements for grooming with our groomers:
- They must have had a Rabies, Distemper/Parvo, and Bordetella vaccine given by a licensed veterinarian within the last year.
- You must call ahead of time for an appointment.
- If your pet is current on all of the vaccinations listed in number 1 then we must have proof from the licensed veterinarian or veterinary clinic that administered the vaccinations. We can get these in one of two ways:
- You may have them faxed to us or we will be happy to call your veterinarian to request their vaccine records for you.
- You may bring a copy of the vaccinations given by your veterinarian.
