Bathing

Routine and therapeutic bathing services are available.

Dogs

Regular brushing, bathing, and nail care are essential. Protect your puppy's eyes and ears when bathing, and don't allow the puppy to become chilled after bathing. Your veterinarian may recommend that you do not bathe your puppy when it is younger than 10 to 12 weeks unless absolutely necessary (especially if your puppy is one of the smaller breeds).

Cats

Cats do a good job of grooming themselves, but regular brushing to prevent matting of hair is important. Cats rarely need a bath, but one can be given if necessary. Cats object to bathing in slippery tubs, so give your kitten something to cling to, such as a wood platform or a wire screen. Use a shampoo designed for cats and kittens, as some dog shampoos may be irritating.

Place cotton balls in the kitten's ears to keep out water and use an ophthalmic ointment (obtain one that is safe for kittens from your veterinarian) in its eyes to prevent burning from shampoo. Towel dry the kitten completely and gently comb out any mats. Kittens' teeth should be carefully brushed on a regular basis. Your veterinarian can provide you with an appropriate toothbrush, dentifrice, and instruction on how to perform this task so that your kitten learns to accept this as part of its daily care.

Testimonials

Feedback from our clients

  • "Great Vets, great staff and awesome quality of care!! My dogs having been patients of Dunwoody Vet for 7 years and we have always had great experiences. One of my dogs is a senior and has multiple problems, all of the vets have gone above and beyond to help her stay comfortable. I recommend this clinic to everyone I know, you won't be disappointed!"
    GREAT!
  • "I am new to Dunwoody and was very nervous about taking my cat to a new vet. My cat saw Dr. Spivey and she was wonderful. Very thorough, great bedside manner, and she didn't try to get me to get any unnecessary tests or x-rays. I really liked her, front desk staff (that is rare for me), and the cleanliness of the facility. What a relief it was to find such a great place. And today, my cat is doing great because of their care. I plan on making them my vet for both of my cats."
    EXCELLENT!
  • "I've been taking my dog, Higgins, here for several years now and would't dream of going anywhere else. The entire staff is friendly, knowledgeable and caring. I cannot say enough good things about them. If you're looking for a vet, you should definitely check them out."
