Taking your pet to the groomer should not be a special occasion—clean, brushed-out coats and trimmed nails are good for their health, too! Our dogs and cats do their best to groom themselves, but they cannot clip their nails or clean their ears. At Columbia Pike Animal Hospital, we offer a full range of pet grooming services in Annandale to keep your pet feeling fresh, clean, and healthy.

Why Is Grooming Important?
The state of your pet’s coat can say a lot about their health overall. Dull, flaky, or greasy coats can indicate an allergy or skin condition that requires further treatment. When grooming your pet, we are not just getting them clean. We can also use our time with them to check for any lumps, bumps, lesions, or parasites, too. Ears, eyes, and anal glands can also receive special care from our experienced professionals, who will make a note of any abnormalities they observe and bring them to your attention.
Requirements for Grooming
- Distemper/feline distemper
- Feline leukemia
A groomed pet is not just clean and pleasant-smelling; they are probably happier and healthier, too! Regular grooming not only keeps coats shiny and smooth, but allows for the early detection of skin, teeth, ear, and eye problems. Nail trims can improve your pet’s posture, and anal gland expression can prevent painful irritations and abscesses.
