Cat Grooming and Nail Trimming

Cats should occasionally have their coat trimmed. Since their hair can become painfully matted or they may be unable to groom their privates, clipping your cat’s hair could be beneficial to their health. As your cat may be boarded all day with other cats, please make sure that your cat is up to date with their FVRCP vaccine.

What grooming services does the clinic provide?

Our technicians and assistants offer lion cuts, spot shapes and nail trims. Nail trims can be done without any sedation as long as your cat is not too stressed. If your cat is very stressed, we might suggest some light sedation to help with the process. All of our hair grooming is done on sedated cats only, since this is often a very stressful procedure for them. Your cat will be given medication to make them relaxed and sleepy. The technician performs the cut, and the cat wakes up with a brand-new look. No stress involved.

COVID-19: Additional measures we are taking

Dear Clients,

Due to the close contact that our work requires, we have taken additional measures to protect you and our team while providing care for your furry family members.

The following changes are effective as of Monday, March 30, 2020:

1. We are currently operating a “closed waiting room” policy to protect our clients and staff. When you arrive, please remain in your vehicle and use your cell phone to call us at 250.715.5143. We will take a history from outside of your vehicle, and bring your pet into the clinic for an examination with the veterinarian. We will then return to your vehicle with your pet to discuss our recommended treatment plan. If you do not have a cell phone please knock our door to let us know you have arrived and then return to your vehicle.

2. We are continuing to accept appointments for urgent or sick pets, as well as time-sensitive puppy/kitten vaccinations. All other services will be scheduled for a later time.

3. We are still OPEN with the following hours: Monday to Friday: 9:00 am - 5:30 pm. Saturday: 9:00 am - 5:00 pm.

4. If you are ordering food or medications, please allow 2-4 business days as our suppliers are dealing with increased demand and are trying to fill orders as quickly as possible. We will advise you as soon as your order arrives. Please call us when you arrive to pick up your order, but do not enter the hospital. Our staff will bring your order to your car and take payment over the phone. You can also use our online store and have your food delivered directly to your home. To sign up for the online store, visit our website.

5. For the time being, we are not accepting cash as payment. Credit cards and debit card payments are still available.

6. Online consultations are now available! If you wish to connect with a veterinarian via message, phone or video, visit our website and follow the "Online Consultation" link.

7. Following the recommendations of our government and medical experts, we are doing our best to practice social distancing within the constraints of our roles. As such, we have taken measures to avoid both contracting and facilitating the spread of this virus.

Thank you for helping us be diligent for everyone's safety. As we have heard from all levels of government, the situation is fluid and any updates will be provided as changes occur.
