Pet Grooming

Grooming is just as important for your pet’s health as it is for their appearance. It keeps coats shiny, luxuriant, and parasite-free, and prevents potentially harmful dirt and fungus from accruing to the skin and getting tangled in the fur.

Cat and dog grooming also aids in the removal of loose, dead hairs that accumulate during shedding, and promotes healthy hair growth. It is especially crucial that pets with longer coats be brushed and/or combed regularly to prevent matts, knots, and dandruff.

For a more thorough and high-quality grooming, our professional groomers here at Countryside are available to provide a variety of services to keep your pet feeling clean and fresh. They can also check your pet for parasites, abnormal lumps and bumps, and other issues of the skin, ears, nails and tail.

Schedule Your Cat or Dog's Grooming Appointment

Before calling, check to see if your pet is behind on any of their vaccinations. If necessary, we can vaccinate your pet when you drop them off. When making your appointment, be sure to let us know which bath type and haircut style your pet needs, and which day works best for you. Drop-off hours are between 7:00 a.m. and 9:00 a.m. Monday through Saturday, and from 8 a.m. to 9 a.m. on Sunday. Once your pet is finished, we will call you.
