Medical Grooming Services

We are only offering Medical Grooming Services at this time!

Some pets are not good candidates for the grooming shop. Fractious cats and dogs may require various medications, from a tranquilizer to isoflorane anesthesia to grooming. Some animals have hair mats that require dissection and shredding with special combs, rakes, or clippers, and their dispositions do not allow this to occur without “better living through chemistry.” Our staff can help in these cases.

Additional Things We Handle:

  • Nail Care
  • Brushing
  • Bathing
  • Ear Care
  • Anal Glands

We generally do full shaves or clip-downs (lion cuts) instead of AKC show cuts. We can comb out challenging animals, but we are not miracle workers. Our pricing is based on the difficulty and time required. In most cases, we can offer dental cleaning if we are going to use isoflorane and there is an economy of savings passed on to the owner.

The Importance of Medical Grooming

At Renton Veterinary Hospital, we believe grooming should be more than just a routine beauty session. Our focus on medical grooming reflects our commitment to providing comprehensive care for your pets. Medical grooming combines the expertise of grooming professionals with the knowledge and skills of veterinary professionals, ensuring that your pet receives the highest level of care and attention during the grooming process.
