If we are unable to reach you and feel your pet is in distress and needs Veterinary services we will transport your pet to the nearest Hospital at (Owners) expense.
· Mat Removal
Pets with matted coats take longer during the grooming session. Mats grow tighter and can create tears and sores on your pets skin over time. Zoom Grooming Salon prides itself on being your animals advocate, that is why Zoom Grooming Salon is a cruelty-free dog grooming salon. Any requests for excessive de-matting of your pets coat will be declined. De-matting tightly matted fur is very painful and can cause brush burning on your pets skin. We will shave any pet with severe matting of it's coat including it's tail if necessary. Pets may act strange after they are shaved because of the matting to the coat irritated their skin. Itching, shaking of the head, chasing of the tail, sitting down frequently may occur. Usually your pet will get used their new cut in a few days and will stop the strange behavior. Bringing your pet in on a regular basis for scheduled grooming will help to prevent this from being an issue.
