Bathing and grooming are an important part of your pet's regular wellness care and a great way to keep him or her looking and feeling great. Regular bathing and grooming can also help in the prevention and early detection of skin infections and growths before they become a serious problem.

Hill Country Animal Hospital is happy to offer full-service bathing, and a typical visit includes: bathing, conditioning, and blow drying; brushing and combing the coat; checking for infections and parasites; nail trimming; ear cleaning and hair-plucking the ear canals; and, if necessary, expressing the anal glands. Bathing services are available Monday through Saturday with no appointment necessary. Hill Country Animal Hospital is also proud to offer full service grooming. Our experienced, professional groomers offer the full bathing service in addition to a hair cut, shave, or style of your choosing. Grooming appointments are available Monday through Friday with Courtney or Tammy.

Every breed of dog and cat is different, so the grooming for each pet is unique. We can recommend a grooming routine for your pet so you know exactly what to look for and how often.

If you have a young puppy or kitten, acquaint him or her with grooming early to ensure a comfortable, low-stress process from the start!
