Grooming Services

Grooming services are provided at Mitchell Veterinary Services on Thursdays by our professionally-trained groomer, Chris Gilbert. Chris has over 25 years experience. To ensure all healthy animals stay healthy, all dogs being groomed must be up-to-date on DHPP/Rabies and Bordetella (Kennel Cough) vaccinations.

We offer complete professional grooming for all breeds of dogs and cats at our clinic. Certain breeds—especially those with long hair that mats easily—may need assistance keeping themselves clean. Animals that are older or have physical disabilities may also benefit from our grooming services.

If your pet is having trouble taking care of regular grooming, it can be a sign of an underlying health issue. Be sure to mention this when you schedule an appointment. You can also call us anytime to discuss your concerns.

During your pet’s grooming session, he or she will receive a bath in specially formulated shampoo tailored to his or her individual needs, as well as a haircut of your choice, a nail trim, and ear cleaning. We will also check and clean your pet’s eyes, paws, and pads. We know how to keep your pet calm and comfortable during grooming, so if a bath or nail trim is normally stressful, you can let us take care of those responsibilities so you—and your pet—can relax.

Besides just making your pet look and smell good, grooming provides health benefits. Regular brushing helps remove dead hair, mats, and dirt and distributes natural oils throughout the fur, keeping the coat clean and healthy. Trimming hair around the face, ears, paw pads, and other areas can help prevent infections and irritation and keep debris from accumulating. Trimming nails can prevent joint pain, stiffness, and chiropractic problems.

In addition to providing grooming services, we can teach you techniques to help keep your pet well-groomed. And feel free to ask for a product recommendation or browse our pet-safe shampoos, conditioners, and other grooming products in our reception area.
