At Smith Animal Hospital, we know grooming is an important part of every pet's health care regimen. Overgrown nails, matted fur, and other "exterior" problems can be painful and debilitating for our pets, it's important to keep up with their grooming needs. Our team works hard to provide comprehensive veterinary care for every patient. That includes nail trims and other grooming services to keep their exterior in good condition. If your dog or cat needs to be groomed, ask our veterinarian in Starkville for more information about our grooming services.
Even if you have the sweetest dog or cat in the world, they may show a different personality altogether when it's time for a nail trim or a brush-through. We do our best to create a calm, low-stress environment for our grooming customers. Whether your pet is here for a cosmetic cut, a medical bath, or a routine nail trim, our veterinary team will try to make the experience as pleasant and quick as possible.
We bathe cats and dogs of all ages and lifestyles, from puppies who can't sit still to cats who can no longer groom themselves. If bath time is too messy or stressful at home, come into our animal hospital and leave it to the professionals. Our medical baths include medicated shampoos for pets with allergies, infections, and parasites.
Many different diseases, disabilities, and age-related conditions leave pets with clogged anal glands. It's important to keep these glands clean to prevent infection, blockage, and other health problems, but we know this is often a difficult and stressful task to perform at home. Instead of trying to express your pet's anal glands yourself, schedule an appointment in our grooming center.
