Do you struggle with bathing or trimming your pet? The Madison Animal Hospital offers full service grooming for our current dog and cat patients. We offer baths, full body brush-outs, nail trims, teeth brushing, utility and specialty clips, mat removal and lion cuts for cats.
We offer a broad spectrum of shampoos and crème rinses, from medicated and moisturizing shampoos to hypoallergenic and colloidal oatmeal. If your pet has a diagnosed skin condition that requires a medicated shampoo, or if you have a particular shampoo preference, please discuss this with the groomer during admission or when you make the appointment. The groomer is not able to diagnose skin diseases. If you suspect your pet has a skin disease, please make an appointment with the veterinarian.
Grooming is done in the morning and early afternoon on Tuesdays and Thursdays. The grooming may take anywhere from 30 minutes for a simple bath to 2 hours for large cuts. Because of the length of time needed to dry their coats, most pets will be ready early to mid-afternoon. Grooming your dog or cat has many benefits. Not only will they look better, but they will also feel better as well. When a dog is brushed, all the dead hair is removed and eliminates many of the bad odors. It may also reduce the need for scratching and itching.
