Shave Down: Short-Hair
Yes, we know even short-hair dogs shed uncontrollably. Includes everything that “Smooth-Coated Dogs’ receive, plus the shave-down.
Shave Down: Long, Thick or Matted
The skin under matted fur is often irritated and difficult to groom. Matted coats and excessive undercoats cause health problems for your pet. Mats do not allow for air circulation to the skin, which can cause hot spots, bacteria and fungus infections. Fleas, ticks and other parasites may be lurking. Matted fur pulls and binds, causing pain to your pet when they move or lie down.
Includes everything in “Grooming & Style” package plus the shave-down. Talk to our stylist about a maintenance grooming schedule to prevent future matting.
For thick or long-coated dogs with excessive undercoat. Includes Everything that “Grooming & Style” dogs receive plus our 3-Step De-Shedding Process. This treatment help to remove as much undercoat as possible without damaging your pet’s skin.

Touch-Up for In-Between Visits
If it’s been less than 3 weeks since your last Grooming & Style visit.
Recommended for our valued clients, this is a great maintenance option for keeping long-haired dogs in fuller coats. Includes Bath & Brush plus trimming between paw pads, around the feet, eyes and sanitary area.
We recommend you look at various hair cuts available for your pet and work with the groomer to find a style that is convenient for you and your pet.
Remember, not every hair style looks good on every pet, and some traditional styles, may not be good for your lifestyle (long hair on a Maltese that likes to splash in the mud.)
Also please remember that certain styles can only be achieved by diligent and routine professional grooming.
If your pet is matted, tangled or has serious skin problems, it may be easiest to give them a crew-cut first, and then work towards a style as the hair grows back.
Our groomers are trained to bring to the doctor’s attention health problems that they notice, and with the doctor's permission, can use specially medicated shampoos on your pet.
Most animals can be groomed without sedation, but there are some which need either sedation or full-anesthesia (particularly matted cats). You need to set-up these grooming appointments through the veterinarian.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call or stop by to speak with the groomer.
All pets must be patients of Barnside Veterinary Hospital. Our Grooming Service is for clients and pets who may require a little more attention than a typical groomer can offer.
All new pets must be examined by the veterinarian prior to grooming. If there are no outstanding medical problems or vaccines due, this exam is performed gratis.
Any pet who has previously been groomed at Barnside Veterinary Hospital, but who has not been seen by a Barnside Veterinary Hospital veterinarian within the past year, will require a comprehensive physical exam at regular price.
All clients must provide proof that their pet is up-to-date on the following:
Feline Distemper (FVRCP)
Kennel Cough (Bordetella)
**Vaccination titres are not acceptable in lieu of vaccines**
