Grooming

Regular grooming is essential to the maintenance of your pet’s health.  It helps protect the hair from matting, skin from irritation, and alerts our staff of potential issues you may not detect at home.

Grooming keeps your pet looking and smelling clean and fresh. At Palisades Veterinary Clinic, your pet will be professionally bathed, ridding them of dirt and other debris.  Hard to clean areas, such as in between the paw pads, facial folds and ears are specifically targeted.

Grooming also helps enhance your pet’s quality of life. Regular maintenance assist their own grooming process.  They will struggle less and be more willing to self-groom, lessening your responsibility to this task.
