BIRCHWOOD PET GROOMING  (204) 832-1368   

Birchwood Pet Grooming has been in operation since 1997. Our groomer Monica, has many professional years grooming all breeds of dogs and cats.

Our pet grooming service is available Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday by appointment only.  You are welcome to bring your pet to us between 7:00 a.m. and 9:00 a.m.

Clients will be notified by phone when their pet is ready for pick up (usually mid-afternoon).* 

We cannot offer a guarantee for time of completion as time requirements vary per pet.

*Your pet may be picked up later in the day if necessary.


 

All grooming services include nail trim, ear cleaning and anal gland expression.

Cats: $65 (Does not include sedation, physical examination or wellness profile).

Dogs:  The cost of grooming a dog is largely dependent on the size/breed, condition of the coat and the time it takes to complete the task. An estimate will be provided upon request.

Price will vary if sedation is required.  Because sedation involves the introduction of a drug, we strive to provide the best medical options possible to ensure your pet's safety.  Should it be necessary, a physical examination and/or a wellness profile will be offered if not conducted within the previous 12 months. 

***Pet's requiring sedation should be fasted after 9pm the evening prior to grooming, water may be given overnight but please do not offer any in the morning of the day they are to be groomed.


A few important points:

  • All clients will be required to complete a PPGAM (Professional Pet Groomers Association of Manitoba) waiver.  *** View waiver ***
  • All pets admitted to our hospital should have current (within the past 12 months) vaccinations prior to grooming due to potential contagious diseases or infections.
  • We require that all pets be in good health and free of infectious diseases.   We reserve the right to refuse any animal for grooming that poses a health or safety risk.
  • Should your pet require sedation, he/she will be subject to a physical examination if not conducted within the past 12 months.  A blood screen (wellness profile) is recommended prior to sedation.

The Matted Dog

A Guide To Grooming


Grooming Guidelines

ALL STYLES ARE DEPENDENT ON CONDITION OF COAT. IF MATS ARE PRESENT, THE CUT WILL BE SHORTER.  

PUPPY CUT (Kennel Cut/Teddy Cut):  This style is basically the same cut your dog has but a shorter version. Only dogs that have no mats in their coat can be styled this way. The groomer must be able to comb through every inch of the coat. Most often this cut is about an inch in length.  

SPORT CUT:  This style is cutting the ENTIRE coat short. This is ideal if your dog is quite matted. Breed specific faces can be done if desired. 

SPANIEL CUT:  This style is when the groomer leaves the skirt and legging. 

SCHNAUZER CUT:  This style is when the groomer leaves eyebrows, beard, skirt, and legging.

WHEATEN CUT:  This style, similar to the schnauzer cut, is when the groomer leaves longer eyebrows, beard, skirt and legging.

LION CUT (FELINE): This style is when the entire body is shaved short, the head (mane), boots and small amount at end of tail are left.  BILLY is modelling this look and appears quite pleased with the results!


Nail Care: How To Trim Your Pets Nails

Tip:  Have some cornstarch ready in case the nail is accidentally trimmed too short and begins to bleed.  Apply cornstarch to nail and continue using direct pressure until bleeding ceases (can take several minutes).
