As you may already know, grooming is more than just about keeping your pet looking as beautiful and picture-perfect as possible. Regular grooming (especially for long-haired pets) is key to keeping them clean, healthy and comfortable. At Fifth Avenue Veterinary Clinic, we are happy to offer grooming care services.

How many times per year should my dog be groomed?
When it comes to frequency, it will depend entirely on your pet’s breed, hair length and coat type. A common schedule for many of our patients is once every 8 weeks. It is important as well to start your pet early – getting them regular grooms during the puppy stage will help them become accustomed to the process and reduce any anxiety towards grooming.
How long will it take to groom my dog?
Depending on your pet’s size, the condition of their coat, and the specific treatments you select, a grooming session can take anywhere from one to 4 hours.
What do I need to bring to my dog’s first grooming appointment?
All you need to bring is your furry friend! We have all the tools we need to groom all types of pets, and we ensure that the equipment is sanitized in between sessions to prevent any kind of disease transfer.
My dog is anxious and can be a bit aggressive, can they still be groomed at your clinic?
Yes. Please advise us ahead of time so that we can adjust accordingly to your pet’s needs. We will take extra care with your pet, and go through each step of the grooming process slowly to reduce any kind of stress. If needed, we can break up the grooming into separate sessions over the span of a few days. We will update you right away if we need to shorten the grooming session so as not to stress your pet.
