Not every dog breed needs grooming services except getting their nails trimmed and ears cleaned. Some breeds often have a bad hair day and need to be clipped. Pets, including cats, can be difficult to handle. Have you ever tried to bathe your cat? It is best to leave this chore to the trained professionals in order to avoid injuries to both your pet and yourself. This guide can help you choose the right groomer for your beloved animal.

Westview Animal Hospital
5800 Johnnycake Road
Baltimore, Md. 21207
(410) 744-4800

If you are looking for an experienced groomer, look no further. Susan, the skilled groomer at Westview Animal Hospital, has been clipping, de-tangling and pampering animals at this location for over 20 years. Because Westview is a veterinary hospital, there is always a veterinarian around if the groomer notices a medical issue like fleas, ticks or skin irritations while working on the animal. Your pet can be groomed while it is boarding at the hospital, so when you pick up the dog or cat, it will be looking and smelling great. For your convenience, pets can see the vet and be given their shots while they are at the hospital being groomed.
