Regular grooming of your pet is a necessary and very important aspect of pet care. Brushing your dog is not only good for their skin and hair but it is also a great way of bonding with your pet. Grooming also identifies and prevents the infestation of fleas and ticks on your pet.
Most breeds need a regular professional groom some dogs have long hair and need regular trimming others get a build up of undercoat that needs to be removed and sometimes your dog just needs a really good scrub. Dogs of all shapes and sizes are welcome at Uncle Mikes.
At Uncle Mikes we offer a full time grooming service for your dog. This is carried out by Nuala our highly skilled and experienced groomer. A full groom entails a thorough brush out to remove any knots or dead undercoat. The skin is checked for any external parasites such as fleas and ticks. The skin and coat is assessed to decide which shampoo would best suit your dog. We have shampoo for sensitive skin, dry flaky skin, for greasy coats and of course the very popular baby powder shampoo suitable for all breeds.
The ears and eyes are cleaned and the nails are clipped. The dog is then moved to the bath where they get a thorough scrub and the anal glands are emptied. Once rinsed they are dried off and combed through once more. The coat is then clipped and scissor in the style of the breed or to the owners specifications. Your dog is then ready to go home.
Don't forget your dog can come in for a "touch up" between main grooms if you wish. Prices start from as lillte as €5 depending on what your dog has done.
He should have a short walk to go to the loo.
Before your dog comes in to be groomed :
You should not feed him/her before he/she comes in.
You should not wash your dog before he comes in.
You should inform the groomer of any medical conditions or injuries the dog may have.
