Pet Bathing

A luxurious bath for your dog or cat can boast many health benefits. At Elmhurst Animal Care Center, we provide individualized bathing services designed to meet your pet’s every unique need, such as:

  • Treatment for sensitive, dry, or itchy skin
  • Medicated baths for pets with skin conditions or allergies
  • Compassionate care for pets to whom bathing may be a source of fear or anxiety

In our experience, the best way to address bath anxiety in a pet is to replace negative experiences with positive ones. If your pet is reluctant to get in the tub, our dedicated staff will be happy to talk with you about how we can accommodate his or her needs.

Remember: Good hygiene is just as important to your pet’s health as it is to yours! If you have any questions about the pet grooming services available at Elmhurst Animal Care Center, please contact us.

Cancellation Policy

Any cancellation or change to your pet's grooming appointment must be made at least 24 hours prior to the appointment. Failure to do so, or a no show, will result in a full grooming charge.
