At Polo Springs Veterinary Hospital, professional grooming means more than just having your pet look great and smell good. Grooming can relieve stress, improve coat and skin conditions and help discover potential problems between veterinary examinations.
When your pet visits our veterinary hospital, they will benefit from a number of procedures included with their professional grooming service. Prior to their bath, one of our highly trained veterinary technicians will perform a toenail trim and an internal anal gland expression. Because of Colorado’s climate and the number of pets we see with dry and/or sensitive skin, we are very particular about the grooming products we use on our patients. As part of the bathing process, we will shampoo your pet twice with a mild, pH-balanced shampoo that is formulated for superior cleansing. This shampoo is also enriched with special coat conditioners and is gentle enough for daily use.
Following your pet’s shampooing, we will apply a hypoallergenic crème rinse with added emollients and emulsifiers to condition your pet’s skin and hair coat. The natural moisturizing factors in this crème rinse promote superior hydration, while the essential fatty acids replenish your pet’s skin barrier and aid in the control of skin flaking and scaling. Following the skin and coat conditioning process, your pet will be blown dry and receive a complete brush out of their coat. During your pet’s grooming service, they will also receive a thorough ear cleaning. We utilize a prescription ear cleansing solution that is specifically formulated to deodorize and gently clean, dry and acidify your pet’s ear canals. Pro-ceramides in the ear cleaning solution also have antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties. This helps to provide your pet with a healthy ear environment, which is so important considering that ear infections are one of the most common medical problems our veterinarians see.
For your convenience, during your pet’s stay with us, we are also able to provide them with any veterinary services that you request. One of our veterinarians would be happy to consult with you over the phone regarding your pet’s medical care. Or, if you prefer, we can also arrange for one of our veterinarians to be available to speak with you on your pet’s arrival to or discharge from our hospital.
Professional grooming services are available by appointment, with flexible hours to accommodate your schedule.
