  • Why should I have my pet professionally groomed?

    While you may choose to take on the responsibility and time commitment of grooming your pet yourself, there are a few good reasons to have the job done by a professional groomer:

    They have the right tools.

    Professional groomers have a wide range of grooming tools at their disposal, from various clippers and specialty skin products to adjustable grooming tables and bathtubs designed specifically for pets. They also keep a selection of specialty shampoos on hand for cats and dogs with allergies, skin irritations, fleas and ticks, and even for dogs that have been sprayed by skunks.

    They have plenty of experience handling dogs and cats.

    Professional groomers know what to do to keep your cat or dog safe during grooming. They are experienced in handling seniors, animals with behavioral issues, and more.

    They take care of the unsavory tasks.

    No matter how much we love our pets, when it comes to cleaning and grooming them, there are certain tasks that are far from pleasant. From shampooing muddy or skunked dogs to removing fleas and ticks and cleaning anal glands, a professional groomer will get the yucky stuff done with a minimum of fuss – so you don't have to.

  • How often should I have my pet groomed?

    The proper frequency of grooming sessions depends on your pet's breed, hair length, and coat type. In most cases, though, regular grooming should be done about once a month.

  • When can I drop my pet off for grooming?

    We can schedule your pet for any time during our pet resort hours, which are as follows:

    Monday: 8:00am – 7:45pm
    Tuesday: 8:00am – 7:45pm
    Wednesday: 8:00am – 7:45pm
    Thursday: 8:00am – 7:45pm
    Friday: 8:00am – 7:45pm

    It is best to drop off between 10am and 11am.

  • How long does a grooming session take?

    Typically for a grooming session, you will drop your pet off in the morning and pick up your pet mid-to-end of the day, depending on how many appointments we have scheduled for that day. The groomers do try very hard to accommodate everyone and their needs however, we cannot guarantee your pet by specific times.

    We will contact you when your pet is ready to be picked up. 

  • How much does grooming cost?

    The cost of grooming varies depending on your pet's breed and size, and the type of coat they have. Whether your pet has any significant behavioral issues can also affect the cost. For a better idea of the cost, please contact us for an estimate.

  • What are the health benefits of professional grooming?

    Grooming is a necessity to ensure your pet stays clean and healthy. This task can remove fur that’s been shed and has stuck to your dog’s coat, fleas, mats, and ticks. Other health conditions can also be halted or prevented.

    Because mats can cause knots in your pet’s hair, this can lead to pain and discomfort - something every owner wants to prevent. A good brushing will also make your dog’s coat shine. Their nails will be trimmed to prevent curling and invasion of germs.

    Early detection of skin infections or problems is key to your pet’s health, and the groomer will know what to look for. They will find any inflammations, new lumps, infections, rashes, or lesions that may be missed by even the most diligent owner. They may also catch an underlying problem, and the sooner these issues are found, the sooner they can be treated.

  • What are the requirements for grooming at Mamaroneck Veterinary Hospital?

    Because your pets will be staying at the Pet Resort for their day of grooming, similar medical prerequisites apply regarding their vaccine status. For the health and safety of both your pet and our other guests, all grooming clients should be current on their core vaccines (DA2PP, Rabies, and bi- annual Bordetella for dogs; FVRCP and Rabies for cats) and have NEGATIVE bi-annual fecal parasite exams performed.

    Please bring your pet’s vaccination history with you when you check-in for grooming.  Of course, any medical treatments your pet may need can also be done by our veterinarians during their stay here.  Additionally, if you have other concerns you would like addressed by a veterinarian while here for grooming, just let our receptionist know and they will arrange for the appropriate follow-up by a doctor during your pet’s stay.

Pet Bathing Services

Our bathing services are available daily and include shampooing, nail trimming, ear cleaning, and anal gland extraction, as well as blow-drying and brushing.

  • Removes dirt & odor for cleaner skin and coat
  • Softens and conditions coat
  • Reduces shedding
  • Helps treat and reduce symptoms of any allergies & skin conditions
  • Helps us monitor your pet's health
