Here at Merewether Veterinary Hospital we offer a limited grooming service for pets. As a busy veterinary hospital, we cannot offer a regular grooming service. We only offer grooming under the following circumstances:
- Dogs with specific behavioural or medical conditions requiring sedation for grooming- please call us to discuss individual needs.
- Cats requiring sedation to clip a matted coat.
In some cases, particularly for cats, grooming can be a stressful procedure. We are fortunate that here at Merewether Veterinary Hospital our vets will always assess the grooming patient’s suitability for sedation. This will always be discussed with you prior to grooming your pet.
Our groomers are also qualified nurses so not only are they skilled in handling your dog or cat, they are very attentive to noticing skin or coat problems, which they can bring to your attention, and arrange for a consultation with our vet if required.
We offer grooming during weekdays, and will always require an appointment, so please call us to discuss the needs of your pet.
