Grooming Care

Fur’st Choice Pet Care offers therapeutic spa treatment to your pets in the comfort of your own home. Grooming services can be added to any sitting service for your well-behaved pets, or performed separately with a $15 travel fee to clients within our service area, $25 travel fee to clients outside of our service area. We use high quality, hypoallergenic products and low stress practices to ensure the health, safety, and wellness for your pets.  

Conditions apply: The goal of all of our services is to provide a  stress-free, beneficial experience for your animal companions. Sometimes pets just aren’t receptive to the services we want to provide, and we will always respect their wishes. Sometimes they just want their mom or dad nearby for reassurance, and in these instances we will reschedule services for when you are available to provide such a support system. At this time Fur’st Choice Pet Care employs one Technician, so sometimes we may need the assistance of mom and dad if applicable until we hire more Technicians.

Anal Gland Expression                                  $10

Anal glands will be palpated and manually expressed if found to be full. Whenever possible, internal expression of the glands will be performed for completeness of gland evacuation. The rectal area will then be gently cleaned with a hypoallergenic solution. Expression of anal glands is not required for all pets, and will only be preformed if your pet is showing signs of discomfort or if your veterinarian recommends this procedure be completed on a regular basis. Assistance is required and is available to well-behaved dogs and cats.
