Grooming Services

We are always happy to evaluate your pet to determine any needs that may require further attention and care. Since we have an AAHA-accredited full-service veterinary hospital on the premises, we can also administer sedation under a doctor’s care to groom overly aggressive pets.

Our routine salon services include:

  • Bath
  • Blow-dry
  • Haircut
  • Brushing-out
  • Toe nail trim
  • Ear care (clean and pluck)

Bathing always uses the finest shampoos, and special shampoos are used if needed for skin care. We rinse and repeat, follow with a cream rinse, and finish by hand blow drying to achieve that perfect look. We also offer mat removal, when needed.

We understand that middle-aged and senior pets often have age-related problems that may make grooming more difficult. At Vanity Fur, we have the experience and special equipment to make salon visits less stressful for older pets.

Health Requirements for Grooming

To keep all our salon visitors happy and healthy, each visitor must meet certain health requirements. In addition, we recommend that all pets be on a monthly heartworm prevention regimen and be treated with a monthly flea and tick control product.
