Frequently Asked Question

Why do you request that we provide documentation that the dog has up to date vaccinations?

We want to insure that your dog's vaccinations ares current as a protection for our groomers and also to protect the dogs of the next customers. A current rabies vaccination is essential. Although rare some dogs become stressed and may "nip" a groomer. In order to protect their health and avoid the need for them to receive protective rabies treatment we want to make sure the vaccination is current within the grooming period. Other vaccinations such as Bordetella (Kennel Cough), Distemper and Parnovirus can be contagious to other dogs. Even though we thoroughly clean all work areas and use sterile wipes on all work services after each grooming we take this extra precaustion to ensure other pets have no chance of contamination.

You only need to provide this documentation for the first time we service your dog. We enter the vaccination information into our on board computer system. The next time you utilize our service you will not have to provide any documentation as long as our data on your pet shows that the vaccinnation period covers the date of service.

If you are a returning customer, at the time you make your appointment we will look up your pets information in our computer. If the vaccination has expired relative to the time requested for the appointment we will advise you that you will need further documentation of a new vaccinnation in our response to your appointment request.
