COVID - 19 Grooming Update May 7, 2020
Following our COVID - 19 protocols we will now be offering grooming again. Due to the high demand for grooming we are working off a list and priority is going to those pets with a medical necessity. Also for further safety we are requiring all groomed pets receive our medicated bath with antiseptic shampoo, this does come at an additional cost.
We ask that you call for specific hours, days, pricing and availability.
A grooming day at Clinton Veterinary Hospital leaves your pet looking and feeling great!
Our groomer is trained with years of experience. Professional grooming offers many benefits such as keeping your pet's coat, skin and ears in good condition, increased comfort, social acceptability, and eliminating pet odor. Frequent and regular grooming makes your pet feel better too, and has definite health benefits in cases like allergy and sensitive skin problems. A day with our professional groomer might just be what your precious pooch needs! We provide grooming services for all breeds of dogs and cats. We provide basic bath, brushing, and blow out that includes bathing with an aloe & oatmeal-based or medicated* shampoo, hair trimming, toe nail trim and grind*, ear cleaning and plucking, and anal gland expression. We also offer a custom design cut to your specifications, including body shaves and lion cuts. **Additional fee may apply for these items**
If your pet has a medical concern, why not combine the visit and schedule your pet's grooming appointments around its doctor examination?
Grooming services are offered during regular hospital hours on certain days of the week. Please call the Clinton Veterinary Hospital to schedule a grooming appointment for your pet as we do grooming on a drop off basis in the morning between 8:00am-10:00am.
Grooming services are available by appointment. Please call ahead to schedule an appointment. Grooming charges are based on the size of your dog, its breed, current coat condition, degree of matting, and specialized grooming needs unique to your pet.
Drop off and pick up times
Grooming pets should be dropped off on the day of their appointment between 8:00am-10:00am. The groomer will either meet with you or call you to discuss any special needs you may have. You should plan to pick up your pet after 2:00 pm, but before 5:00pm that day. If you need to pick up later, it may be arranged before the closing time at the end of the day depending on staff availability.
Medical and vaccination requirements
For your pet's safety and the safety of our other guests, we require that all grooming pets be up to date on their vaccinations and free from internal and external parasites at the time of grooming. If the Clinton Veterinary Hospital has not provided these services, you will need to provide proof that your pet is up to date on the following:
We reserve the right to refuse grooming to any pet that does not meet these requirements.
Payment in full is due at the time of the pick up. We encourage you to ask for an estimate of the grooming services so that you are prepared when you arrive for pick up. We accept cash, checks with valid ID or driver's license, and credit cards (Master Card and Visa).
Our Sedation Policy
Most of our grooming cats are sedated to prevent injury to the cat from excessive movement or to calm aggressive cats. Aggressive dogs can also be sedated if the option of muzzling is not working. However, we will not sedate without your permission. Sedated patients are monitored closely until grooming is over and they are waken fully. Sedation is an additional fee and we do require current bloodwork before sedation is performed, bloodwork is also an additional fee.
