Grooming Services for Pets

It’s important for your pet to keep up their appearance! Though some furry family members, like cats, might do a better job at taking care of themselves, having them regularly groomed by our veterinary team helps your pet maintain their overall health. If you have questions about our grooming services, please connect with our veterinary team at 604.544.7387.

Why should I make my pet’s grooming appointment with the hospital?

Though you could take your pet to the groomers, it might be helpful to keep as many of your pet’s services concentrated in one place. Since our veterinary team is already well-versed about other areas of your pet’s health, grooming might also reveal other issues with their well-being. For example, matted fur can be a sign that your pet has other underlying health issues that our veterinarians can examine more deeply. After brushing your pet, we’ll give them a fresh cut, nail trim, ear cleaning and cleansing bath.

How can I take care of my cat in between grooming visits?

Cats are experts at self-care and grooming themselves but some assistance from their owner could include:

  • Regularly brushing them to prevent their hair from matting
  • If you need to give your cat a bath, use shampoos specifically formulated for cats and kittens
  • If you’re bathing your cat in a tub, give them a wooden platform or wire screen to cling to and reduce slipperiness
  • Place cotton balls in your kitten’s ears and special ointment on their eyes (recommended by our veterinary team) to protect them from the shampoo
  • Carefully brush their teeth with a veterinarian-approved toothbrush

    How can I take care of my dog in between grooming visits?

    A few things you can do for your canine friend are:

  • Regularly brush and bathe them
  • Integrate nail care into their at-home grooming routine
  • Protect your puppy’s eyes and ears during bath time
  • Quickly dry them after their bath to ensure they don’t get cold
  • Try not to bathe your puppy if they are younger than 10 to 12 weeks old

    Dear Clients,

    Due to the close contact that our work requires, we have taken additional measures to protect you and our team while providing care for your pet.

    Note: If you are experiencing respiratory symptoms, please let us know when you book your pet’s appointment. As the potential to spread to pets is still relatively unknown, it is possible that your pet could create a risk to other people who may be handling him or her.

    1. WE CAN SEE ALL CASES BY APPOINTMENT ONLY This includes vaccines, wellness exams, blood work, spays and neuters, dental services, and more!

    2. SAFETY MEASURES FOR APPOINTMENTS

  • We are currently operating with a “closed waiting room” policy to protect our clients and team. When you arrive, please remain in your vehicle and use your cell phone to call us at 604-544- 7387. We will bring your pet into the hospital for an examination with the veterinarian. We will then call you on your cell phone to discuss the issues with your pet, and you will have a telephone consult with the veterinarian to discuss further diagnostics required or a treatment plan for your pet. Following the end of the appointment, we will return your pet to you.
  • If you are ordering food or medications, please allow 2-4 business days as our suppliers are dealing with increased demand and are trying to fill orders as quickly as possible. We will advise you as soon as your order arrives. Please call us when you arrive to pick up your order, but do not enter the hospital. One of our team members will bring your order to our designated pick up location, outside our front doors. Payment will be processed over the phone. You can also use our online store and have your food delivered directly to your home. To sign up for the online store, visit our website.
