Why Hydrobathing?

While dogs naturally require regular cleaning, it’s crucial to balance hygiene with health. Washing your dog too frequently can strip their coat of essential natural oils, leading to dandruff and skin irritation. That’s why we recommend a hydro bath every two weeks, striking the perfect balance to maintain their coat’s health and luster.

Frequently asked questions

Are there any breed-specific considerations or limitations when using the hydrobath?

The hydrobath is suitable for all breeds, featuring a high-strength fibreglass tub that can accommodate sizes from Maltese Terriers to Great Danes comfortably. 

How can I make nail clipping less stressful for my pet?

Gradually acclimate your pet to the process by handling their paws regularly without clipping. During clipping, keep the environment calm and offer treats and praise to create a positive association. If your pet is extremely stressed, consider consulting a professional groomer or vet.

How can I tell if I’m cutting too close to the quick?

The quick is easier to spot in light-coloured nails as a pink area within the nail. In dark nails, it’s harder to see, so clip in small increments and look for a dark dot to appear at the tip of the nail, which indicates you are nearing the quick. 

How do you ensure that the hydro bath treatments do not strip my dog’s coat of its natural oils?

The recommended frequency of a hydro bath every two weeks is designed to maintain hygiene without stripping essential natural oils from your dog’s coat, thus preventing dandruff and skin irritation.

How does the therapeutic massage feature of the hydro bath help dogs with arthritis?

The hydrobath’s spray head provides a hydro-combing action that massages and stimulates the skin, promoting blood circulation and offering relief for muscle fatigue and arthritis. 

How often should I clip my pet’s nails?

The frequency of nail clipping can vary depending on the pet’s activity level and nail growth rate, but a good rule of thumb is to clip your pet’s nails every 3 to 4 weeks. Active pets who walk on hard surfaces may naturally wear down their nails and require less frequent clippings.

What are the benefits of the medicated shampoo options, and how do I know if my pet needs one? 

Medicated shampoos provide relief for sensitive skin conditions like allergies, infections, and dermatitis. They help alleviate itching, reduce inflammation, and support healing. A consultation with the grooming staff can help determine if your pet would benefit from these products. 

What are the specific grooming services offered for cats and dogs?

The services include full-body clips, specialised treatments for coat health, nail trims, ear cleaning and plucking, and luxurious baths in a hydrobath. There are also targeted shampoos for specific coat colours or needs. 

What kind of nail clippers should I use for my pet?

For most dogs, scissor-type clippers or guillotine-type clippers are effective. For smaller pets like cats and rabbits, a smaller scissor-type clipper is usually better. Make sure the clippers are sharp and in good condition to avoid splitting the nail.

What measures are in place to ensure the comfort and safety of my dog during the hydrobath?

The hydro bath contains the water and the dog, ensuring a mess-free, hassle-free experience, and is equipped with season-adaptive water to cater to the dog’s comfort regardless of the weather.
