A Feline Salon Bath is a gentle cleansing with warm water and shampoo to wash away any unpleasant odors.

Shed Reducing Treatment

Both long- and short-haired dogs and cats tend to shed, and our special treatment can help remove the undercoat quickly and comfortably. The FUR-minator Treatment can help you spend more time with your pet and less time cleaning up their hair while ensuring your Pet looks and feels better. Within two treatments, you'll find shedding is reduced up to 90%, and you'll love spending time with a cleaner, healthier, happier Pet. Prices are $22* and up, based on breed, coat condition, and temperament. This service is available for both dogs and cats.

*In addition to the Salon Bath price

Additional fees may apply to Salon and Shed Reduction services. These additional fees are assessed for dogs and cats with poor coats, severely matted coats, behavior requiring additional assistance, and very large breeds.

"My dogs came home nicely groomed and perfectly tired.  I was able to check in on them via webcam and the staff kept notes on how they did.  They seemed to really enjoy group play time and I was very happy with the number of staff members supervising group time.  We'll be back!"
