At Chatham Animal Hospital, we know that the condition of your pet's skin, nails, fur, and glands are important indicators of their overall wellbeing. It's important to keep your pets clean from head to paw, free of any fur mats, waste remnants, dry patches, or parasites that may lead to pain or discomfort. That's why our pet wellness exams always include thorough examinations of your pet's coat, nails, teeth, skin, and glands. It's also why we make grooming a priority, offering both veterinary grooming services and professional pet grooming sessions right here with your Cary veterinarian.
If you're not comfortable with baths or nail trims at home, leave it to the professionals. Your pets deserve a safe, painless grooming process, and our veterinary team and professional groomer know how to minimize risks and stress while paying attention to every detail.
Chatham Animal Hospital now offers professional pet grooming three days a week. Our groomer will be at our Cary animal hospital on Monday and Thursday for full-service grooming sessions. Call us today to schedule your pet's first grooming appointment, or ask your veterinarian about our grooming services during your next visit.

Our in-house professional pet groomer has more than 13 years of experience with dogs, cats, and other pets We're always looking for new ways to enrich our wellness care and keep our patients healthy and comfortable, so we're excited to expand our talented team of animal specialists.

Grooming isn't just a luxury for pampered pets. Grooming is actually an important part of your pet's wellbeing, especially if their fur tends to get long and matted, or you have trouble taking care of their regular nail trims and ear cleanings at home. Let experienced professionals handle trims and baths for you, instead of subjecting your pet to unnecessary stress, nicks, and pain.
Sometimes, pets develop infected or irritated anal glands that prevent the proper elimination of waste. If your dog is dragging his or her rear end across the carpet, come to our Chatham animal hospital. Our veterinary team will take a look and express the glands if necessary, to speed along the natural process and eliminate any irritation quickly and effectively.
