Dumfries Animal Hospital offers professional grooming services 7 days a week! Scheduled Appointments are required. Your pet can be dropped off as early as 7:30 am Monday through Saturday and picked up as late as 8:00pm during the week.
To ensure your pet’s safety, we require all dogs be current on their Rabies, Distemper, and Bordatella vaccines and cats to be current on their Rabies and Distemper vaccines prior to being admitted for grooming. If vaccinated at another facility, proof of vaccinations are required.
Because this grooming service is a part of our veterinary hospital, you can rest assured that, should any medical emergency arise while your pet is with us, he or she will have immediate access to professional veterinary staff.
Our grooming staff is 100% dedicated and passionate about providing a stress-free, gentle, and calm grooming experience for your pet. They will have constant access to fresh water and will be walked several times throughout the day.
BATH AND COMB OUT
Pets that do not require a haircut will receive a bath, anal gland expression, and blow dry. After each pet has been dried, the groomer will trim the nails and clean the ears. The groomer will complete your pampered pet’s grooming with a thorough brush out.
SPECIALTY CUT OR SHAVE
If your pet is in need of a specialty cut, shave down or clipping, they will first have a “rough cut” done by our groomers, followed by an anal gland expression and bath. Once dried, your pet will have their nails done, ears cleaned, and breed specific cut.
Occasionally we are able to accommodate requests for a specific pick up time. Due to the number of pets scheduled each day, these special requests are limited and must be requested at the time the appointment is made. A good contact number is required so we may call you when your pet is ready to go home.
Each of our groomers may have up to 8 pets scheduled to be groomed per day. We have up to 3 groomers working daily. Due to different stages each pet will go through to receive their completed grooming, it may be necessary for your pet to spend a good part of the day at our facility. The drop off times do not reflect the order in which your pet will be groomed.
Prices may vary based upon the breed, condition and thickness of the coat. De-matting, undercoat removal and extra brushing fees may apply. Special Handling Fee may be added for behavior issues or extensive breed specific styling.
