We take your pet’s nutrition seriously and encourage a well-balanced diet. We offer veterinary prescription diets for cats and dogs, including the brands Hill’s Science Diet, Royal Canin and Purina. These special diets are used for a wide range of care, such as kidney, dental, digestive, urinary, hairball and weight management. Our veterinarians will discuss an appropriate diet for your pet, which may include a prescription diet.
Grooming and Pet Nutrition Services
Grooming is not just a way to make your pets look pretty, there is a lot more to this veterinary service. Regular grooming can help prevent matting, control shedding, alleviate skin irritation and identify abnormalities that are not easily noticed. We recommend having your pet groomed every four to eight weeks, depending on the length and condition of your pet’s fur.
We offer the following grooming services for dogs and cats:

Benefits of Grooming at St. Francis Animal Clinic
for your pet while grooming
If your pet is difficult or gets extremely stressed for grooming, our veterinarian can administer sedation. This can particularly help in pets that are severely matted.
Access to your
pet’s medical records
Our veterinary clinic has your pet’s medical records and can perform any critical care if it were to become necessary for our more infirm companions.
Grooming Report Card
You will receive a report card with the condition of your pet’s coat, eyes, teeth and ears, along with any recommendations that the groomer or veterinarian may have for your pet.
Anal glands are
expressed by a veterinarian
A general part of the spa day is a routine anal gland expression. Some animals benefit from this service. Expression is done only by the veterinarian, not the grooming staff, to limit possible problems related to this process. Although not an exam, the veterinarian does comment on what may be going on “down there.”
treat your pet while grooming
If our groomer finds anything abnormal with your pet, such as cysts or growths, yeasty ears, skin discoloration or external parasites, a veterinarian may look at it BEFORE your pet goes home. You may also choose to have an exam or treatment done by a veterinarian while here for grooming.
