Our Manhattan animal hospital offers full-service Upper East Side pet grooming for cats and dogs in NYC. A typical pet grooming visit includes the breed specific trim, bathing, conditioning and blow drying. Along with this we also trim your pet's nails, clean his or her ears, pluck the hair from the ear canals and express the anal glands.

Every breed of dog and cat is different, therefore the grooming for each pet is unique. We can recommend a regular grooming routine for your pet so you know exactly what to look for and how often to have him or her groomed.

Our cage free Manhattan pet grooming facility is open Monday through Friday. A grooming appointment is required. Please call the hospital at 212-288-8884 in order to make an appointment.

If you have a young puppy or kitten, it is a good idea to acquaint it with grooming at an early age. This insures an easy process from the start!
