Pet Grooming, Boarding & Day Care

Looking for someone to care for your pet while you’re at work or out of town? Could your furry friend use a trip to the spa?

Animal Care Hospital provides professional grooming, boarding and day care services that are not only comfortable and safe for your pet, but also adhere to the standards of excellence for patient care established by the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA).

Grooming Services

Regular grooming is essential to your pet’s good health.  Ear plucking and anal sac expression help to prevent infections of those areas in dogs, while regular bathing and nail clipping helps ensure your dog or cat maintains healthy coat, skin and paws. Our experienced professional groomer provides comprehensive care in an environment that’s designed to set even the most anxious pet at ease.

Each grooming session includes:

  • A professional haircut according to your specifications
  • A shampoo
  • Blow-dry
  • Nail trim
  • Ear plucking and cleaning
  • Anal sac expression
  • Special medicated and conditioning shampoos and coat treatments as directed
