Furminator grooming

The FURminator Treatment

We offer the FURminator® shed-less treatment. Tired of having pet hair everywhere? This is the solution. The FURminator® shed-less system gently grabs and removes the undercoat and loose hair without cutting or damaging the coat. Within one to two treatments, this process has been proven to reduce shedding up to 90 percent.

Other Dog Grooming Treatments

Teeth Cleaning: We use the PlaqClnz non-anesthesia cleaning process that does not involve brushing or scraping the teeth. You will notice an immediate difference in your pet’s breath and with regular cleanings you will see a big difference in the color and health of their teeth.

Blueberry Facial: This is an all-natural, tear-free aromatherapeutic product that leaves pets’ faces bright, clean and smelling great.

Paw Treatment: This is for pets who have rough, dry, cracked pads or itchy paws due to allergies. Your pet’s feet will be soaked in an all-natural, vitamin-rich bath that will soothe their paws and leave them feeling refreshed.

Cat Grooming

As with dogs, grooming is important to your cat’s health and appearance. We offer a full-service professional grooming salon to cats of all kinds.

Our state-of-the-art equipment and certified professional groomers will make your cat look their very best while taking special care to put them at ease during all services. Grooming services can be scheduled with a lodging or daycare reservation or by daily appointment. Our professional groomers and bathers take special pride working with each cat they groom, and your pet’s safety and comfort is our priority.
