Pet Grooming by our San Antonio Veterinarians at Pet Medical Center of San Antonio
Pet Medical Center of San Antonio offers professional pet grooming services to help your pet look their best. Our groomers take exceptional care of your pet and extend their services to all ages, sizes, and breeds. With numerous services and options, you can tailor your pet’s grooming treatment to your specific desires. Whether you want a simple shampoo or a breed-specific cut and blow-out, our pet stylists provide stunning results.
Upon scheduling your grooming appointment, be sure to let our staff know if your pet has any skin allergies so we can arrange for them to have a medicated shampoo and soothing skin conditioner.
Some of the grooming services we offer include:
Anal gland expressions (dogs only)
Breed standard haircut or haircut based on owner preferences
Ear cleaning (if there is anything abnormal the veterinarian will be notified)
Full bath and brush-out (or blow-out depending on breed)
Medicated bath for pets with skin allergies
Capstar tablet for flea control (we do not do flea dips, which are considered very ineffective compared to administered a Capstar tablet)
Sedation, if necessary due to pet aggression, administered by the veterinarian. If you know or think your pet will need to be sedated, please inform us of this when you call to schedule your grooming appointment. In some cases, before your pet can be sedated, your pet may need to be examined and have blood work performed to determine if there are any health risks and make sure your pet can safely be sedated. There are additional fees incurred for the exam, the blood work, and the sedation.
For your pet’s safety as well as the safety of our groomers, we do require all pets to have current vaccination records when scheduling grooming appointments. If your pet requires any boosters at the time of scheduling grooming, simply let the receptionist know, and our veterinarian can administer the vaccine prior to service. The added convenience of having both veterinarian and groomer in our office is that vaccinations and grooming can be scheduled for a single visit.
Please note that our groomers perform all services to their best abilities. If services cannot be rendered due to pet aggression or unwillingness, we will not force your pet to undergo the planned treatment. Our office will notify you of any services that we were not able to complete prior to picking up your pet. While you will not be charged for services not performed, our groomers will offer suggestions to help lessen your pet’s apprehension towards their next grooming appointment.
If you have any questions, concerns, or would like to schedule a grooming session, please contact our San Antonio groomers today.
