Ku-ring-gai Veterinary Hospital offer dog and cat grooming services in the Northern Sydney area to keep your pets in tip-top condition with healthy skin and a lustrous coat.
Dogs with no allergies or skin problems will benefit from having regular bathing on a fortnightly basis. To make it easier to bathe your pet, the facility at Ku-ring-gai Vets offer a hydro-bath which is 'walk in' and equipped with a high pressure hose. Dirt and debris can be gently massaged out of your dog’s coat.
If your dog has a skin problem that needs treatment by regular bathing, the grooming salon at Ku-ring-gai Veterinary Hospital, can offer expertise on what shampoo to use: either to condition the pet’s skin, deal with flea control, or perhaps to treat pets with more sensitive skin using hypoallergenic shampoos, or medicated shampoos for dogs with dry skin problems.
Cats are generally not known for their love of water, preferring to groom their hair and skin themselves. However, long-haired cats need regular grooming to remove loose hair and prevent matting, and may prove too much for even the most fastidious cats! Grooming short-haired cats helps to check for fleas, ticks and skin irritations. Regular brushing helps to give your cat a glossy coat by stimulating the skin and distributing natural oils through the coat.
Your cat’s claws can be trimmed using special cat nail scissors, but it’s important not to cut too far along the nail. If you are nervous about trimming your cat’s nails, the pet groomers at Ku-ring-gai Vets can assist.
A warm, soothing hydrobath can make the difference between a happy pet and one that is itchy, irritated and a bit on the nose. Stunning Paws Professional Stylists are located within Ku-Ring-Gai Vet Hospital and are open Monday- Friday. Please phone 9449 5556 for an appointment between 9am and 5pm.
