Pet Grooming From Your Oakland Park Veterinarian

pet grooming

As your choice veterinarian in Oakland Park and Fort Lauderdale, our friendly and experienced team is happy to provide the highest quality veterinary care for your beloved family pets. Whether you’re a first-time pet owner or you have years of experience raising pets, keeping up with preventative vet care is the best way to make sure your pets will thrive for many years to come.

Benefits of Regular Cat and Dog Grooming

Having a difficult time keeping up with regular nail trims, coat treatments, and ear cleaning? Our licensed and skilled veterinary team is here to help! Some of the most common health benefits of regular, professional grooming include:

  • Proper Grooming – Professional veterinarian grooming means that your family pets will walk away looking great without any serious discomfort or injuries. We take the time to not only wash and cut their fur to your specifications but we also examine the coat and skin, paws and more to ensure that your pet is healthy.
  • Pain-Free Nail Trimming – Dogs should have their nails trimmed once a month and this can often lead to a negative experience for everyone involved. To help make sure your dogs and cats have healthy paws and nails, our friendly team can handle the trimming for you and make sure your pets are safe and injury-free.
  • Early Warning Signs – With regular grooming appointments, we have a better chance of catching and identifying common health conditions early on. If we notice any abnormalities like lumps, rashes, skin discoloration or bald patches, we will quickly examine your pet further to rule out any common diseases.
  • Education – With professional grooming, we are able to observe your pet’s skin, coat, nails, and oral health and make recommendations accordingly. For example, if we notice dry and flaky skin, we may recommend a few dietary changes that can help to improve their coat.

We want to make sure that your pet feels comfortable and relaxed during their grooming appointment. We will begin by completing a thorough examination of your pet’s coat, skin, nails, paws, teeth, and gums to make sure they are ready for a bath and a haircut. Our bathing services include medical dips, shampooing and conditioning treatments. We also offer nail trimming, brush outs, shave downs, anal gland expression and more.

How Frequently Should My Pet Be Groomed?

Your pet’s grooming needs can vary. For example, a long-haired dog that spends time outdoors may need to make more regular visits than an indoor-only, short-hair breed. After an initial consultation, we will work with you to determine a grooming schedule that fits your pet’s lifestyle and wellness needs.

Does My Cat Need Professional Grooming?

Yes! Even though cats are able to care for their coats on their own, they can still benefit from regular grooming appointments. In addition to safe nail trimming, we can help to properly remove any lasting dirt and prevent hairballs.

Is Professional Grooming Necessary?

While you may feel comfortable bathing your pet on your own, professional care including nail trimming and anal gland expressing can be very difficult to perform. Keep your pet and yourself free from injury by putting your trust in our professional team.

  • "AWESOME, Dr. Spencer Ratnoff is the best he treated my cat for a fractured top k9 tooth, when He finished with him, he looked like he was born without a k9 tooth. He did that surgery so well it’s refreshing a Dr that actually cares, his team is wonderful and very attentive, I left a message and not even 10 minutes later, I got a call back. My family is forever grateful .thank you for everything."
    Maryem K.
  • "I initially had a bad experience due to the Doctor that was in on that day. I returned for a checkup for my girl 'Cali' 'Cat' and the energy Dr. Ratnoff had was much better with my girl as she can be very temperamental. I was very pleased during this visit as Dr. Ratnoff had more patience and better vibe as our pets sense negative energy. Its a shame my first experience was not pleasant but I will be back and only ensure Dr. Ratnoff with my girl. Thankyou Doc!"
