The skin is a vital organ and must be tended to on a regular basis. Routine grooming does more than just keep your pet looking its best, it plays an important role in maintaining healthy skin.

Our groomers are available 7 days to consult with you if you have a special request or question about your pet’s haircut. At Hickory Pet Inn we offer professional grooming services for all breeds of dogs, as well as customized styles, seasonal clips and feline grooming.

Dog breeds that do not shed: poodle, shih tzu, schnauzer, to name just a few, should be groomed every 8-12 weeks. Regular grooming helps your dog to look and feel its best. For others, a shave down twice a year does the trick to keep shedding fur under control and off of the rugs!

If you have a question about your pet’s skin or coat, please ask for one of the veterinarians at the Pennsylvania Specialty and Emergency Associates at Hickory Veterinary Hospital to examine your companion and discuss their findings and recommendations.
