Can do wonders for their mental well-being as well as their health

The Southview Grooming Experience

The benefits of grooming a pet reach far beyond simply looking smart and smelling fresh, it can do wonders for their mental well-being as well as their health.


We are proud of the professional and friendly service that our qualified groomer Jane provides in our purpose-built grooming studio, and we only use the best grooming products to compliment this fantastic service.


Most pets simply love the special attention and sensation that washing and grooming provides. However, because some pets can be nervous to begin with, we take a careful, steady approach until they feel comfortable and begin to realise the enjoyment of being pampered.

Who do we cater for?

Catering for pure breeds and crossbreeds, we can groom to most breed standards or to a client’s custom requirements.

Your dog will receive the full service of:

  • shampooing
  • drying
  • trimming
  • nail trimming
  • ear cleaning/plucking, should it be required

Most importantly, we provide a personalised, reliable service for you and your dog beginning with a consultation of your expectations and requirements.

The benefits of grooming

Because every pet deserves the best, here are just some of the benefits of regular grooming:

  • A pet that feels fresh as a daisy. Never underestimate what this can do for their mental well-being, especially in older pets who are less able to keep themselves clean
  • An important part of their healthcare, dead hair and dirt will be removed and painful matts prevented
  • Grooming can have a massaging effect on the skin such that blood supply is stimulated, the result is a healthy and shiny coat
  • Nail length is kept in check, preventing in-growing nail problems and discomfort when exercising
  • Cleaning and plucking ears helps to keep them free from infection
  • Grooming your pets can help keep your home clean from hair, dirt and bacteria shed by your pet

Cat Grooming

Our nursing team carry out cat grooming for cats who have long hair and become matted. In general, sedation is necessary so we use a small amount of a reversible sedation and monitor your cat so we can reverse the sedation if necessary. As long haired cats gets older they can find it difficult to groom themselves and are often left with severely matted coats which they cannot manage themselves.
