Grooming Your Pet
Keeping your pet clean is an essential aspect of pet ownership. Pets, like humans, need to be bathed to maintain the health of their skin and coat. How often you bathe your pet will depend on the type of hair they have and their propensity to get dirty. Certain types of pets need to be bathed once a week, while others clean themselves and don’t need baths – ever. It is important to understand your pet’s specific grooming needs, and it is equally as important to meet them, either by means of at-home grooming or by hiring a professional groomer.
If you plan on home-grooming, it is important to obtain the supplies necessary to properly clean your pet. The following is a list of some supplies you might consider:
If you prefer to take your pet to a professional groomer, many of these services are combined in packages to allow you to easily select a desired grooming session. If any extra services sound appealing, ask you groomer if they offer such services or if they could perform them for your pet.
Dr. Hovis and his staff have been taking care of our dogs for 20 years. Dr. Hovis is outstanding! He is caring, concerned, compassionate and extremely knowledgeable. He cares so much for his animal patients. He is the best vet we have ever had in the 26 years we have had dogs as a part of our family.
His staff are also excellent. And always willing to work our dogs into their busy schedule.
I highly recommend Dr. Hovis and his staff!

I cannot express to you how kind Dr Hovis and the team at Dickson animal clinic are! I had to board my ESA there and I was treated with compassion and understanding that made my Experience alot easier to handle.
Everyone there was polite, respectful and treated Kinsey like family. Now that she is home, some of the girls still call to ask how she is doing which let's me know they are Sincere in their Love of animals.
If you want you fur baby to receive THE BEST TLC possible come here to Dickson animal clinic.
I will Always recommend them every chance I get.
God Bless Dr Hovis and the Amazing Staff!
