Our Decatur pet bathing services help keep your pets dirt-free while reducing the risk for fleas, ticks and other skin disorders. Our grooming team is trained to identify potential skin problems, providing an important line of defense against pesky parasites and skin disorders. In addition to Decatur pet bathing, our veterinary hospital also provides comprehensive wellness grooming services, including summer trims, nail clipping, ear cleaning and anal gland expressing.
Regular baths are important for all pets, especially if your dog enjoys exploring the great outdoors or visiting dog parks. Dirty, matted fur can quickly become a breeding ground for fleas. These pesky parasites not only irritate your pet’s skin, but can also transmit worms. Our grooming team understands that bathing pets at home can be a challenge, especially if your pet does not like getting wet! Our gentle, compassionate groomers will help your pet relax and enjoy the experience. We use only pet-friendly, hypo-allergenic grooming products, which are suitable for all pets, including those with sensitive skin. Following pet bathing, we also provide ear cleaning so pets are clean from head to paw!
If your pet has long fur, our veterinarian recommends a summer trim to help your pet stay cool in the heat. However, we discourage pet owners from trimming their pet’s fur at home. When trimming or shaving, it is easy to over cut, leaving a pet’s skin vulnerable to sun burns. Additionally, if a pet becomes anxious or nervous, they may try to bolt or squirm, increasing the risk for accident nicks and cuts. Our experienced groomers understand the best way to help pets relax while receiving their summer trims.
Nail clipping is another grooming service that is best performed by experienced professionals. Trimming a dog’s nails can be a tricky process, especially if dogs become anxious or nervous. Unfortunately, many pet owners who trim their dogs’ nails at home inadvertently cut the nail quick, causing bleeding and pain. When our professional groomers trim your dog’s nails, the process goes quickly and is pain-free!
Anal gland expressing is another pet grooming service that is best left to the professionals. While anal glands typically express naturally on their own, if they become infected or irritated, professional assistance is necessary. If your dog is dragging his rear across the floor, it is likely that he needs to have his anal glands expressed. Our groomers can quickly take care of this problem.
Our Decatur veterinary team is really one extended family – and our groomers treat you pets just like they are members of our big family. Pet owners choose our veterinary hospital for pet bathing care because of our team's gentle, compassionate touch. We help pets relax and enjoy their grooming visit!
Pets of all ages benefit from regular pet bathing, nail clipping, and ear cleaning. To learn more about our grooming services or to schedule your pet’s grooming appointment, contact our Decatur vet hospital at 217-428-7709.

I visit Fairview Animal Hospital at least once a week for a few of my fur-babies to receive laser therapy and the ENTIRE staff always shows genuine concern for my babies as well as me. They are always completely honest in the care they believe my pets need and only suggest treatments that they firmly believe would help my babies comfort. I have six dogs and two cats who all have their own issues and they know them all by name, know what their problems are and cater to their individual needs. The best part of this staff, is that every single one of my babies thoroughly enjoys their visits which is most important to me.
