Shed, Bath & Beyond Grooming
"There is no psychiatrist in the world like a puppy licking your face."
-- Bern Williams
Many people like to bathe their pets in between grooming sessions. Always remember to brush out your pet's coat BEFORE you bathe him or her. Most people don't realize that this is the number one reason your pet's fur becomes matted. If there are any knots in his or her coat, the water will make them become tighter and tighter until your groomer has no choice but to shave the coat short.
Pet owners do have to brush your pet between grooms even if they come every four to six weeks! To keep the pet's coat in good shape, it needs weekly attention if not daily brushing depending on how long we are leaving the coat. Please discuss this with your stylist to find a manageable length to keep the coat should you not have time to brush as frequently as required for your pet.
Summer time is flea and tick season! If we see a lot of ticks or fleas on your pet, we may have to send your pet home. For liability purposes, be advised that we do not pull any ticks from your pet. If your pet has ticks, the safest thing you can do is treat with a topical no less than 24 hours before grooming to kill those that are latched on. We encourage you to speak with your Veterinarian for the best medication for your pet.
Due to the harsh nature of most Flea and Tick Shampoos, we no longer offer Flea Dips in our Salon. We advise you to seek information from your Veterinarian on the best way to treat your pet.
