Pet grooming can be arranged by our off-site groomer. Dog grooming services typically include bathing, haircuts, nail trimming, ear cleaning, conditioning and teeth brushing. High quality grooming products are used to ensure that all canines are cleaned and pampered prior to departure from our kennels. Cat grooming services usually include trimming of nails, cleaning of ears, bathing (this is only required in extreme cases), brushing, trimming of fur around sanitary area and coat and skin solutions that may help with overall condition. Our groomers use special feline products that help you cat look and feel good after a stressful travel experience.
PET GROOMING TIPS FOR TRAVEL
To help your pet stay comfortable during his or her travels, you can also do some pet grooming at home before setting off on their adventures. Some tips to keep in mind include the following:
- Brush your pet’s coat well before travel. This will help to remove the thick layer of fur found beneath the top layer that often causes overheating. Shaving double coated dog breeds will not only help to keep them cooler, but the removal of the undercoat will go a long way in making dogs as well as cats feel cooler and more comfortable in the summer months. It will also prevent hair balls.
- If possible, do not wash your pet for at least three days before travel. It will be much easier for your pet if you wait until after its travels to book a grooming session. Afterwards, your pet can go home and relax.
- Make sure that your pet’s nails are clipped in advance. This applies to cats and dogs. Declawing your pet is not advised – this traumatic, painful operation can be extremely damaging to both cats and dogs and will make any travel even more of an ordeal. Trimming nails gently can be done at home or at the vet.
After a long journey, everyone deserves a bit of pampering. With the help of our qualified, experienced pet groomers, your pet will come home from their travels feeling refreshed and comfortable. Contact us today to learn more about our grooming services for pets.
