Our pets are our life partners, and we want them to be happy and healthy. We know you don’t have the time to spend on your pet. That’s why we offer a convenient service that allows you to take care of their needs without having to go through the hassle of finding a new groomer or going for a walk. We’ll spend time getting to know your dog and cat and establishing a bond with them. We’ll discuss their likes, dislikes, favorite activities, and anything else you want to know about your furry friends.
Grooming for Dogs
Breed and lifestyle determine the specific grooming needs of each dog, but basic maintenance includes bathing, brushing, nail clipping, and haircuts.
Bathing your dog removes dirt and debris from their fur and promotes healthy skin. Most canines should be bathed once every month and every three months. Use a shampoo specifically designed for dogs and water that is warm but not hotter than the dog’s skin.
Avoid giving your frequent dog baths. Frequent bathing can cause skin irritation, hair follicle damage, and an increased risk of bacterial and fungal infections.
Brushing your dog’s coat removes dead hair and prevents skin irritation and matting. Additionally, brushing your dog helps lessen the amount of hair in your home – a constant battle for many dog owners.
Some dogs require daily brushing, while others can be brushed once per month. Longer hair must be combed more frequently to maintain its health and shine.
Use nail clippers developed exclusively for dogs. Rotary nail clippers are also available, but they can be slower. If your dog will not allow you to cut its nails or if you do not feel comfortable doing it yourself, consider hiring a professional.
When it comes to haircuts, several breeds have very distinct requirements. Consult your Modernvet veterinarian or a professional groomer to determine how often and how to cut your dog’s hair.
Before you trim your dog’s hair, wash them with a high-quality dog shampoo, pat them dry with a towel, and brush out its fur. Use sharp scissors to trim the fur around the face and feet, then electric clippers for the rest of the body.
Grooming for Cats
Grooming a cat normally entails brushing, washing, nail and paw care, and ear, eye, and dental care.
Brushing your cat’s coat will help remove dirt, oil, skin flakes, and dead hair. Additionally, brushing stimulates blood flow and improves your cat’s general skin condition. Brush your kitty companion with a metal comb once or twice every week. As your cat ages and loses the ability to groom himself precisely, brushing sessions become increasingly vital to his general health.
True, cats dislike water. Fortunately, the majority of cats do not require frequent bathing. Cats generally take care of their grooming, requiring assistance only if they get into something sticky or unpleasant.
When it is time to bathe your cat, use a cat-specific shampoo and warm (but not hot) water. There is a significant risk that your cat will not cooperate, so close the bathroom door before beginning. You might also consider donning gloves and long sleeves for further protection against your angry cat.
Paw & Nail Care
Cleaning and checking your cat’s paws regularly is essential to pet maintenance. Investing a few minutes daily to ensure that your cat’s paws are clean and unwounded could spare you a trip to the veterinarian in the future.
Clipping your cat’s claws may reduce the destruction of your soft furnishings and claw. If your cat is unwilling to trim its nails, spend some time acclimating to having its paws stroked without nail clipping. Once your cat is accustomed to having its paws checked and touched, proceed gently to nail trimming.
What does it cost to have a dog bathed and groomed?
The cost of a dog bath or bath with a haircut depends on the size of your dog and its coat type. If you have a large breed, it will be more expensive than if you have a small breed. Bathing costs more than clipping because it involves shampooing the dog’s coat and drying them off afterward (as opposed to just clipping their hair).
The cost of bathing also depends on if you want to shampoo your dog before or after they get wet in the tub. Shampooing adds about $2-$3 to each grooming session; this can add up quickly if you’re doing multiple weekly sessions!
What vaccinations are required for salon services?
If you’re interested in getting your pet groomed at a salon, it’s important to ensure they’re up-to-date on all their vaccinations. The American Association of Professional Pet Sitters recommends that all dogs be vaccinated against rabies, distemper, and other diseases.
If you’d like to book an appointment for your dog or cat at one of our salons, please call Modern’s vet clinic. We’ll get back to you as soon as possible!
How long does a grooming session take?
The amount of time a dog grooming service takes depends on the size and condition of your dog. If you have a large, heavy-haired breed, it may take longer than if you have a small-breed terrier that has thin hair.
The groomer will also have to spend more time on each animal because they are more complicated than other breeds that don’t require extensive work (like cats). A pet owner can expect around two hours for an initial consultation with their local pet groomer before scheduling an appointment for grooming services at their home or office.
What should I do to get my pet started with a grooming service?
To get started, call the Modernvet clinic to make an appointment. You’ll want to bring your pet in for a consultation, so we can discuss what kind of grooming service you are looking for and how often you would like it done. We will also need to bring in some of your pet’s medical and vaccination records if they have not been updated recently. Additionally, it is helpful if they know their grooming preferences: whether they prefer baths or trims only if they do well with nail trimming but don’t like having their ears cleaned out, etc.
How is safety ensured for all dog grooming services?
The safety of pets is a top priority for us. We have a strict policy regarding animal health and safety, which includes the following:
- Sterilized instruments and equipment are used only on animals certified by an accredited veterinarian as healthy, fit, and free of disease.
- All surfaces are sanitized between pets to prevent cross-contamination between animals or unsanitary conditions in the facility. This includes all equipment used during grooming services (brushes/combs, combs), water bowls, tables where food is served, etcetera.
- Only trained professionals handle your pet(s) at our grooming service facilities because we believe it is important for them to understand how important it is not only for them but also for us as owners that their animals’ health needs be cared for properly from the start until finish!
Do I need to book an appointment for walk-in services?
No, you do not need to book an appointment for walk-in services. Walk-ins are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. Walk-ins typically take between 30 minutes and 2 hours, depending on how much time we have available in our day. What vaccinations are required for walk-in services?
