Routine teeth-brushing in dogs helps prevent plaque and tartar build-up, gingivitis and gum disease. It also helps minimize bad breath, tooth decay and infections so your pet enjoys a healthy smile. Our stylists can also help spot broken or fractured teeth before they become larger health issues.
DOG NAIL TRIMMING
Regularly trimming your pet’s nails can help prevent discomfort while walking and injuries caused by them not properly gripping the ground. It can also help minimize carpet damage and skin injuries. Our stylists will help make sure your pet’s nails are a safe and healthy length.
Regular vet visits can help detect illnesses and diseases early on so you avoid costly vet bills in the future. Up-to-date vaccinations will help ensure a long, happy life with you. Your vet will do a nose-to-tail exam to help make sure your pet looks and feels their best.
