Professional Cat and Dog Grooming in Clifton Park
Does your pet carry a bit of an odor? Is their coat a little overgrown and tangled? Could their nails use a trim? Dog grooming services are so much more than an aesthetic service for show dogs! Regular grooming helps to keep your pet’s coat and skin healthy and contributes to a greater sense of well-being. Breeds with continuously growing hair especially benefit from a professional pet groomer, but all breeds, both dogs and cats, with benefit substantially from routine grooming.
