If you’ve ever tried to trim your dog’s nails on your own, you’re no doubt aware that they have a blood vessel called the “quick” which runs through the middle of their nails. Accidentally cutting the quick can led to bleeding and pain. Avoid the stress and leave the nail trims to our capable spa experts, who know exactly how far to cut with nail clippers or file with a Dremel.

Anal glands are often problematic, especially in small dogs. In an ideal situation, anal glands are expressed naturally whenever the dog has a bowel movement. The movement of the feces causes the anal glands to be automatically expressed. Unfortunately, we don’t live in a perfect world, and often small dogs find that their anal glands are not being fully expressed. Larger dogs with loose stools or low fiber diets can also face problems with expressing their anal glands. The symptoms of anal gland problems are not pretty, and you can be sure you’ll notice your dog’s discomfort soon enough. If you’ve been spotting your dog scooting his rear end all over the place, whether on the carpet, in bed or in your own lap, there’s a good chance he is suffering from anal gland problems. Dogs often scoot their butts in order to try to relieve an itch caused by irritated anal glands.

Why does a dog require a brush out:
1. Dogs’ coats contain natural oils, but since dogs don’t groom themselves as obsessively as cats do, they need a little help spreading those natural oils around. It will help them looks shiny and fabulous and prevent any greasy buildup.
2. It helps prevent painful mats, If you’ve ever had somebody pull your hair, you know how painful it can be. Now imagine that same sharp sensation over your entire body and you’ll have an idea of how miserable a matted dog must be. Not only are mats painful, but they can hide and even cause skin problems like wounds and infections.
3.Brushing your dog regularly helps you get to know how your dog’s skin usually looks so that you can notice anything different. Some bumps are harmless, but if you spot one that isn’t, early detection can mean the difference between life and death.
4.The more hair you can get off of your dog with a brush, the less hair will be floating around your house, on the furniture, and all over your clothes.
5. Let’s face it – a well-brushed dog looks better, happier, and healthier than one that’s not.
Pricing depends on length of pets hair, size and amount of mats.
