We do offer a de-matting service (removing mats from coat by hand / brush). This is very stressful for both dog and groomer. So bi-weekly bath and brush outs highly recommended. We would normally recommend to the owner that we shave down to eliminate mats and re-grow the pets hair, for the welfare of the dog.

We do not offer the expressing of anal glands, or inner ear plucking. This treatment falls under The Veterinary Act 2010
