The health, safety and comfort of all of the pets in our care is of primary importance to us. We have established our grooming policies, selected the equipment we use, and trained our staff with those requirements in mind.
How much does it cost to groom my pet?
Grooming rates vary depending on the breed of your pet and the type of services you choose. Making a call directly to our Troy’s Trims & Treats Grooming Clinique and discussing your pet’s needs with a member of our professional grooming staff is the best way to obtain a quote.
What type of pets does Troy’s Trims & Treats Grooming Clinique groom?
We groom and bath all breeds of dogs and cats. We have trained groomers who specialize in breed-specific cuts. Please call us directly for rates and to schedule an appointment. Your dogs grooming needs will vary by breed. Some breeds require monthly haircuts and daily brushing while other dogs require a shampoo and regular nail clipping. If you have fallen in love with a breed that requires grooming you already know that grooming can be expensive.
When should I schedule my puppy’s first groom?
Grooming your new puppy should start at 10 weeks of age (after second vaccination), to let the pup become acquainted with the sounds of the grooming environment, noises such as dryers, and other dogs etc. Your groomer will teach your puppy and you the proper way to brush and handle the coat. These techniques started early will imprint on your puppy. The first 6 months of life for a dog is like the first 5 years for a human. It is very important to start them early and make the grooming experience a pleasant experience and not a traumatic one. Once your dog is conditioned for grooming, regular grooming is recommended once a month depending upon the breed.
Dogs with white fur have extra grooming issues that can cause frustration for many owners. White dogs such has Poodles, Maltese and Bichons have yellowing problems with their fur and yucky tear stained eyes.
The tearing around your pets eyes is called Epiphora. While not in it’s self harmful the Epiphors is a breeding ground for bacteria. The odor that can accompany Epiphora is from the bacteria growing around your dogs eyes and mouth. Angel Eyes is a food additive that stops the staining from happening internally. Angel Eyes is safer than using wipes or peroxide these harsh chemicals can cause additional eye irritation or worse.
What about grooming in the winter?
Many pet owners do not have their pets groomed in the winter. Why? It’s too cold.. It may be cold, but your pets still need professional grooming. They can be left longer, even not trimmed at all during the cold months, but they always need a complete brush out and bathing that a professional can provide. Nail trimming and ear cleaning is a must all year round too. When clients let their pets go through the winter without professional grooming, their dog ends up coming in with their fur all matted, and then they need to be clipped very short.
