Grooming

Bring your furry family member by for a spa day at one of our GVA Hospitals, and keep them looking and feeling their best! Regular grooming can prevent painful issues like matting or eye irritation, as well as reduce shedding in your house.

Kim, Tammy, Jaime, Susie, and Lisa are GVA's talented groomers that work between our Russell Ridge, Hamilton Ridge, Apalachee Ridge. Grooming appointments can be made seven days a week at Russell Ridge.

Our groomers' close relationship with our veterinary staff means that issues noticed during grooming, such as ear infections or new lumps, can be examined and addressed immediately.

Although our groomers make every effort to make appointments stress free, we provide sedation services for pets who experience fear or stress during grooming. Sedation may also be needed for pets who are heavily matted.
