Bathing & Grooming Services

We have a Groomer on site at our Vista location to provide adorable cuts and clips for your pet!  Rita will clip and style your pet to your wishes.   *please note that due to upcoming maternity leave, Rita has limited hours of availability right now.

Both the Vista and San Marcos locations offer professional Bathing services Monday through Saturday.  Your pet can be dropped off as early as 8:00 a.m. and picked up as late as 6:00 p.m.

Your pet will be kept in a safe, friendly atmosphere and never exposed to unvaccinated animals.

To ensure your pet’s safety, we require all pets to be vaccinated prior to being admitted for grooming.  This includes a rabies vaccine every three years and a bordatella vaccine every 6 months.  Because this grooming service is a part of our veterinary hospital, you can rest assured that, should any medical emergency arise while your pet is with us, he or she will have immediate access to professional veterinary staff.

We offer Hydrosurge Bathing that provides a deep cleansing of the coat and skin to remove the dead layer of skin cells from your pets coat.

Every bath includes Shampoo, Rinse, Conditioning rinse, Anal Gland expression, Ear Cleaning and Pedicure.  We will clean your dog’s ears and express anal glands if they are problem free.  If your dog has a problem with his ears or anal glands, you can request they be treated by a veterinarian while your dog is here.
