The Benefits of Cat & Dog Grooming in Rutland, VT

Your pet’s coat and skin form a protective layer around them. Yet, when the skin barrier is compromised due to a build-up of dirt, oil, allergens, or bacteria, that protective layer could fail. The result is itchy, irritated skin that becomes damaged and potentially infected with excessive scratching. With routine cat and dog grooming services, you can help keep your pet’s skin and coat clean and healthy. At Rutland Veterinary Clinic and Surgical Center, our professional groomers deliver exceptional care to pets of Rutland, VT.
