Animal Health Centre is a Vet Clinic and Hospital and we leave routine cosmetic grooming to groomers and pet shops.
Where we can help is when your pet has special needs. Medical problems or behavioural issues can make grooming difficult, painful or stressful for pets. Our staff are trained in correct patient handling and grooming procedure. We also offer gentle and safe restraint techniques, including sedation, so the job can be done safely and pain-free.
Often pets don’t need sedation, just to be attended by someone who knows best how to handle them. We look after lots of old cats who get the occasional fur matt and many of these are happy to allow a quick comb or clip. In some cases cats come in with their coats almost completed ‘felted’ with knots, but they always leave looking stylish, albeit a little drafty.
Our staff are expert at dealing with pets with skin conditions and when old age and painful joints makes grooming difficult.
