For your pet’s comfort, the staff at Hanahan Veterinary Clinic is happy to offer bathing, ear cleaning, anal sac expression and nail trimming.
Regular baths and nail trims are an important part of your pet’s regular wellness care and a great way to keep him or her looking and feeling great.
In general, your dog’s nails are too long if you can hear him tap-dancing on your floor. For both dogs and cats, long nails can get caught in carpet or cause them to slip. On some pets, nails curve around and grow into the feet, causing pain and infection. Regular trimming is an excellent alternative to declawing and reupholstering your couch.
Our professional and friendly staff understands each pet is unique, and we make every effort to keep your pet calm and comfortable during baths and nail trims.
Boarding reservations should be made well in advance to ensure a spot for your pet. At check-in, a team member will ask for emergency contact information, your pet’s feeding instructions, health concerns, medication instructions and any other special requirements you or your pet may have. This ensures the proper care of your pet during his/her visit.
What to Bring
We recommend to bring your pet’s food if he/she requires a special diet. We ask that you bring only enough food to last the length of your pet’s stay and that you label the food with your name and your pet’s name.
If you would like to bring one personal item, such as a blanket or stuffed toy, you are more than welcome to do so; however, we cannot be responsible for the loss or damage of any personal items. We discourage bringing large bedding.
If your pet will require any medication while boarding, please be sure to bring it with them. There is an additional daily medication administration fee of $2.00
