We’re Grooming Your Pet for
Sweet-Smelling Success

Whether your pet needs a quick shampoo, begs for fancy pawdicures or needs to be rid of pesky fleas, Best Friends offers an array of grooming services. And our safe, ambient air drying means your pet need not fear a hot hair dryer.

Every pet that visits us for a grooming will receive the Best Friends Pampered Pet Package. This includes a deep cleaning hypoallergenic shampoo and massage, a gentle brush out, a nail trim and an ear cleaning.

The Grooming Salon is open Monday through Saturday for appointments. We also offer “Go Home Fresh” grooming services for overnight guests who like to go home feeling so fresh and so clean! Grooming rates vary greatly by breed, so give us a call for an estimate.

The pampering doesn’t stop there!  Add to the grooming experience by choosing any of these optional extras so your pet’s can look and feel their very best.

  • SHEDICURE (reduces shedding up to 80%)
  • Tooth Brushing
  • Re-Moisture Treatment
  • Whitening & Brightening Shampoo
  • De-Skunking Shampoo
  • Nail Grinding/ Filing
  • Nail Polish

Focus on Safety
We require proof of vaccinations for all of our pets. Dogs must be current on Rabies, DHPPv/DA2PPv (distemper, hepatitis, parainfluenza, parvovirus) and Bordetella. Dogs are also required to have a negative fecal. Cats must be current on Rabies and FVRCP (Feline Rhinotracheitis Virus, Calicivirus, Panleukopenia).

Any medical needs or medications must be disclosed to our staff in advance so that we can provide the best care for your pet.

Valet Services
To make things even easier, we’ll pick up and drop off your furry friend for any of our services. Please call our center for prices and to schedule pick-up and delivery.

We think every pet can look right off the catwalk. Dogs too. Make an appointment today!
