Pet Grooming FAQ

Grooming is an essential service that most pet owners tend to overlook. Without it, your pet can come down with several health conditions, such as cysts and ear infections. For those in the Bradford, NH, area, we at Compassion Veterinary Hospital offer grooming to help keep pets happy and healthy. Below are answers to some commonly asked questions about this type of veterinary service.

What Is Pet Grooming?

Pet grooming is a process that refers to the care and cleaning of an animal. This service includes from everyday brushing of the fur to salon treatments of nail trimming, bathing, and ear cleaning.

At What Age Should I Take My Pet To The Groomers?

We suggest that you bring your furry animal as early as four months of age. By bringing him early on, he can get used to our groomer and staff, our animal hospital, and the sights and sounds of the facility.

How Long Does It Take To Groom A Pet?

This depends on the type of breed you have, but it normally ranges from two to three hours.

Are There Any Requirements Before Bringing My Pet In For Grooming Service?

If you have a dog or cat, he must be up-to-date with his vaccination shots. For dogs, we require that they have their vaccines for distemper, rabies, kennel cough, k9 flu, and fecal. For cats, they need to have their immunization shots for distemper, rabies, and fecal.

How Do I Prepare My Pet?

The best way to prepare your pet for grooming is to work with a professional groomer regularly. It also helps if you are hands-on with your animal, such as playing with his paws, having him get used to you looking into his mouth, brushing him daily, and stroking his chin and ears.
