Eclipse Park Vet - Poodle Grooming Procedures

Grooming your pet is about more than just making them look good, a clean pet is a happy pet! That’s why we take the time and care to gently and effectively groom dogs and cats of all sizes and breeds. Even the most nervous and excitable pets can be handled by our expert dog groomers.

Call us on 1300 859 606 to make an appointment for your pet.

We have a professional groomer come in every Thursday for full body clips or just a tidy up! Hydrobaths are available different days of the week so please call to book.

At Eclipse Park Vets we also offer cat clips. This is usually done under sedation or general anaesthetic. If you would like more information on this, please feel free to call and speak to one of our friendly team members.

5 Tips For Bathing Your Dog At Home
  • Choose the right shampoo – never use human shampoo (even baby shampoo) as it’s the wrong pH for your pooch. If your dog is itchy, oily or has sensitive skin, we can recommend the most suitable shampoo for your dog.
  • Pop some cotton wool in your dog’s ears to prevent any water sneaking into the canal – don’t forget to take it out after you’ve finished.
  • Provide a non-slip surface – put a towel on the bottom of the bath, or a non-slip mat to help your dog feel more secure and prevent slipping.
  • Place a towel over your dog to prevent water going everywhere when the inevitable shake occurs.
  • Jam some steel wool in the plug hole to catch the wet fur and make cleaning up easier.

If you need any more information about bathing your dog you can always ask our professional dog groomers for help.

Do I Need To Wash My Cat?

You don’t really need to bathe your feline friend as they are usually capable of taking care of their own personal hygiene. In fact, they come equipped with their own hairbrush in the form of the rough surface on the top of their tongue.

Having said that, some cats are better at grooming themselves than others so your cat may need a bit of help grooming from time to time to help remove any dead hair and to prevent matting. This is especially the case with ageing cats and longer haired kitties. Matting can cause pain and discomfort, and in some cases, your cat may need sedation to have any matting clipped off safely.

If your cat is grooming itself less effectively, this may be a sign of illness or pain and you should bring them in to see our friendly team for a check-up.
