To prevent the spread of disease, all pets must be current on their vaccinations. Please be prepared to provide proof of vaccinations or contact information for your pet’s veterinarian prior to your pet’s grooming appointment. Cats must be current on the Rabies vaccination and the FVRCP (upper respiratory) vaccination. Dogs must be current on the following vaccinations:
- Rabies Vaccination
- Distemper/Parvo (DA2PP) Vaccination
- Influenza Vaccination
- Bordetella Vaccination
- If given intranasally, the annual Bordetella is valid (covers the most strains of Bordetella and is the most effective vaccination).
- If given orally or by injection, a 6-month Bordetella vaccine is required (does not cover all strains of Bordetella but is sometimes necessary depending on your pet’s needs and Veterinarian’s recommendation.
To achieve the most protection for your pet, our Veterinarians will not vaccinate pets on the same day of the grooming appointment. It is recommended by the American Veterinary Medical Association to allow at least 2 weeks for vaccinations to become fully effective prior to exposure to other pets/contagious areas.
We want your pet’s grooming experience to be as smooth as possible. Please consider completing the new pet grooming information form prior to your pet’s appointment.
At your first grooming appointment, please be prepared to spend some time checking in at the lower level boarding & grooming entrance at our hospital (purple awning) for dogs and the main veterinary hospital entrance for cats.
Currently, our groomers are scheduling appointments on Monday – Saturday for dogs in the lower level and every other Wednesday reserved for Cats only in the upper level grooming area. Appointments are scheduled as drop-off appointments in the morning or afternoon. The groomer or grooming assistant will call you when your pet is ready to go home. Pets must be picked up by 5:30 PM Monday – Friday and 1:45 PM on Saturdays.
Payment must be taken at the time that services are rendered. The following forms of payment are accepted: cash, check, Visa, Mastercard, Discover, American Express and Care Credit. Golden Buckeye and military discounts are not applicable for grooming services due to employee commission regulations. If you are pleased with your pet’s groom, please consider adding a gratuity for our outstanding groomers!
If your pet is showing symptoms of any kind that you may want the veterinarian on staff to address, please be aware that there are additional time and costs to do so. Please let the groomer or front desk team member know prior to your appointment so a treatment plan can be prepared for you. If the groomer notices something of concern during the grooming appointment, we will contact you immediately so a treatment plan may be discussed.
We do our best to provide fee transparency at our hospital. Full groom pricing depends on the size of the dog or cat – please call our hospital at 614.389.6455 for more detailed information. In the event that your pet has fleas, is extremely matted or aggressive, we will contact you to inform you of any additional costs. Though our groomer takes special care to make your pet feel at ease, some pets become aggressive or uncooperative. To provide your pet with the best groom, sedation may be recommended. Our veterinarians take precautions when sedating any pet and a physical exam will be performed. For safety reasons, we reserve the right to turn away any pet that is too stressed or aggressive.
