Dog Grooming and Nail Trimming

Grooming and providing nail trims for your dog is a part of the holistic care for your pet. Proper grooming can help keep your dog’s skin and coat looking and feeling healthy. Regular grooming helps prevent fur from matting and pulling on the skin, as well as help prevent topical skin issues. Nail trims performed on your pet regularly can help prevent nails from breaking and putting your pet in discomfort.

How often should I cut my dog’s nails?

The frequency of how often you should cut your nails can vary greatly. Many dogs receive normal wear on their nails and may rarely need a nail trim. Other canines may need a nail trim every couple months. It is best to keep an eye on your pet’s nails and learn what time frame works best for your pet.

Dear valued clients,

Given the current state of the pandemic in Alberta, we have made the decision to return to a closed-door protocol in an effort to do our best to help control the spread of COVID-19. The health and safety of you and all our staff is our top priority so that we can continue to offer your pets the care they deserve. We ask for your patience and understanding while we navigate these challenging times together.

When you arrive for your appointment, please give us a call from your vehicle. We will ask a few questions before we start the appointment and ensure we have all of your information. We will then meet you and your pet at the door. For all appointments, we ask that you wait in your vehicle in the parking lot while your pet is being examined. The doctor will give you a call once your pet is in the clinic so we ask that you have your cell phone on at all times so there are no delays.

If you are picking up food or medication, give us a call and we will put your order in the bins outside the front Dog Entrance. Please note that you can purchase your food through our online store. Just head over to our website https://www.airdrievets.com/ and choose the online store tab at the top.

Thank you for your cooperation and for helping us all stay healthy. Please be considerate of our staff. We ask only for courtesy and kindness when working with our team as they continue to work tirelessly to provide the best level of care for your pet during these trying times.

Thank you for your continued trust in us.

- Your dedicated team at Airdrie Animal Health Centre
