Grooming and Boarding Services in Sugar LandWe value our kennel assistants due to the high level of compassionate care they provide for the boarding pets.  They are responsible for creating the bond that will allow the pets to feel at home while they are here.  They are also trained in being able to recognize symptoms of illness so that if they are concerned a pet isn’t feeling well, they can bring it to a doctor’s attention.  Knowing a minimum amount of pet behavior is a must since they must handle dogs and cats daily while they clean, medicate, feed or let outside for potty breaks.  Our kennel assistants are also responsible for helping to keep high standards of cleanliness for our clinic.

 


Groomers

Grooming and Boarding Services in Sugar LandA groomer holds a very special place in any veterinary clinic.  There are classes and certifications that you can take to teach you grooming techniques.  Grooming isn’t always a solely aesthetic service, it can also serve therapeutic purposes as well.  A groomer will typically bathe, dry, brush out and cut hair.  This is enhanced with extra services like anal gland expression, ear cleaning and toenail trimming.  A good groomer is interested in the entire pet’s well-being, not just the skin and hair coat.   Our groomer is trained to recognize abnormalities in the pets that she grooms.  Any concerns are brought to a doctor’s attention and are addressed on an as-needed basis.  Groomers will often have ‘Grooming Assistants’ who are a vital part of the operation.  These assistants are often in charge of prepping the pet (bathing, drying, clipping nails, expressing anal glands and cleaning ears) before the groomer proceeds with the hair cut.  They need to have a special touch with pets to make the experience as stress-free as possible.
