At Penasquitos Pet Clinic we offer grooming for our clients' dogs and cats and for the general public.
Come in, meet our groomer, Caitlin. She has 6 years experience as a groomer and she loves her work! She has a real passion for grooming. She has received many compliments from our wonderful clients since she started. Call us at 858-484-1260 to book your dog or cat's grooming experience...Spa Day for your pet :-)! Grooming appointments are available Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. NEW: GROOMING ON SATURDAY (by appointment only please). Please call 858-484-1260 for information or to book a Saturday grooming appointment.
If you book a grooming appointment:
We ask that your pet be up to date on his/her vaccines when he/she comes to visit us for grooming. For your convenience you can, if you wish, combine a yearly examination and vaccines with a grooming appointment. The veterinarian will examine your pet in the morning when you drop him/her off for the grooming appointment. After the examination and vaccines are done then your pet can be groomed. If your pet is due for blood work or an urinalysis or another test (except for endocrine tests) these can be done before your petís grooming is started.
Grooming appointments include having your petís ears and eyes checked. If your petís ears are waxy they will be cleaned gently and thoroughly. If our groomer finds an ear infection or sees an eye discharge that is abnormal she will bring it to the attention of the veterinarian who can then call you to discuss the matter. That is one of the many advantages of having your dog or cat groomed with us.
The grooming appointments also include your pets getting their nails trimmed. We do this in a gentle way that does not scare or injure your pet. The anal glands are checked and are expressed if they need to be.
Of course bathing and brushing are included in your petís grooming appointment. If your dog has a skin problem that requires him/her to be bathed in a special shampoo you can bring the shampoo with you and we will use it to bath your dog during the bathing process
Combing or trimming out matted hair is also a standard part of our grooming process. Some dogs get very matted as their hair is quite fine. In this case we will call you to discuss the matting of your dog's coat and to offer solutions to the problem for the future. This may involve shaving your pet's hair down quite short then letting it grow back in while you brush your pet at home to keep them tangle free. You can ask us what products to use to keep your pet's looking their best in between their grooming appointments.
For dogs with "double coats"...that is an undercoat and a top coat or for dogs that shed a lot we now offer a Furminator Treatment ($15 option). When the Furminator is used a special conditioner is used with it to help your dog with shedding. Caitlin recommends that a Furminator treatment be done every 6 to 8 weeks.
We also offer, ďLion cutsĒ for cats that have long hair or are matted (because they wonít let you brush them). Many owners of long haired cats find this cut to be more comfortable for their cats during the summer.
If your cat or dog is scratching the furniture or your hard wood floors he or she can be fitted for Soft Paws after the grooming appointment is finished. These are tiny soft plastic nail covers that can be glued onto the animalís toenails. They come in a variety of colors (clear, red, blue, purple and pink). They need to be replaced about every 6 to 8 weeks depending on how active your pet is. We advise using the colored ones versus the clear ones, as it is easier to see if one of them has fallen off your petís nails while they are at home. You will need to order them prior to your pet's grooming visit from softpaws.com.
If you are allergic to your dog or cat we have two great products that can be applied to their coats after they are finished with our groomer. These products are Allerpet-C (for cats) and Allerpet-D for dogs. You can purchase these products to take home with you. You apply them to your dog or cat once a week with a soft brush. These products make it easier for you the allergy sufferer to live with your pets.
Please call us Monday through Saturday to schedule your pet's beauty appointment right away. Call 858-484-1260.
