Pet owners in Pelham… pet grooming is more important to your pet’s health than you might think. Have you ever gone a month without a bath or shower? No way! You would never go that long without performing personal hygiene, so why should your pet?
Pets, especially dogs, need to be bathed, have haircuts, and get their nails trimmed frequently to keep your pet in top health, maintain a healthy coat and skin, keep nails from becoming ingrown. Grooming and bathing can remove fleas & ticks and our groomer can spot health problems.
Dogs, and cats to a lesser extent, need to be bathed regularly (as frequently as once every two weeks to a month) to avoid uncomfortable skin conditions and unhealthy hair coats. Dirty skin can lead to skin infections, ear infections, and foul odors. Hot spots and other lesions, severe matting, and not to mention shedding, can be avoided with a regular trip to the groomer. In the south, like Pelham, pet grooming during our hot and humid summers is very important.
Oak View Animal Hospital can recommend treatments for home care in between grooming appointments.
Along with flea and tick removal, our full-service spa grooming package can include:
At Oak View Animal Hospital, we provide the pets of Pelham and surrounding areas grooming services to keep your pets and you happy and healthy. Appointments are required.
Pet Grooming Hours
The hours for pet grooming are the same as the Hospital, but pets must be dropped off in the morning and picked up when ready or by close of business. Oak View Animal Hospital can administer stress-reducing products such as Zylkene, Feliway or Adaptil to your pets while they groom with us for a small fee (varies based on product, size and breed).
Grooming for Puppies!
To help introduce your pets to grooming, Oak View Animal Hospital offers a Puppy Package for dogs 6 months and younger for $15. Puppies will receive a bath, brush out and nail trim and become familiar and comfortable with the grooming process, tools and equipment. Starting at a young age allows dogs to be comfortable being handled by the groomer and learn to enjoy their spa treatment!
Call 205-433-0600 or request an appointment online to make a grooming appointment. A well-groomed pet is a healthy & happy pet!
