Health Requirements

For the safety of your pet and the others in our care, we require your pets to be current with their vaccinations.

  • Please allow time to check in with Client Services at the front desk. We must check your pet’s vaccine status and get a phone number where you can be reached for the duration of your pet’s visit to our Fluff & Buff Shoppe.
  • Dogs need to be current on vaccinations for Canine Distemper/Parvo/Lepto, Rabies, Bordetella, K-9 Influenza. We also required and up to date fecal. If your pet needs to be sedated we require a current Heartworm test within the last year.
  • Cats need to be current on vaccinations for Feline Distemper and Rabies.
  • Up to date fecal required.
  • A Word About Fleas: If your pet is found to be infested with fleas when presented for grooming, he or she will be given a flea bath and capstar at your expense. This is necessary to prevent the spread of fleas to other pets in our care. We also have Advantage for cats and Advantix for dogs available for an additional cost, a topical prod­uct that kills fleas for 4 weeks following applica­tion.
  • Please do not feed your pet prior to dropping him/her off for the day. Please allow time for your pet to relieve him/herself before entering the building.
  • When your pet is groomed, the following services are included in addition to coat care: toe nail trim, ear cleaning, and expressing anal glands.
  • Sedation for grooming is sometimes necessary. We require pre-anesthetic blood work prior to sedation.
  • Appointments are available Wednesday and Friday 8:30 am – 4 pm, Tuesday and Thursday 7:30 am – 4 pm, and Saturday 9:00 am-Noon. We try to be flexible, so if you have special needs please let us know. If your work schedule is not compatible with our hours, we offer a night before drop-off service.
  • As in human medicine, the anesthetics available for sedation of companion pets are extremely safe. However, in order to minimize the potential risk associated with sedation, it is vital for us to know the complete health status of your pet before placing him or her under anesthesia. An examination and pre-anesthetic blood work are required for all pets undergoing sedation or anesthesia.
  • Although performing these tests cannot guarantee the absence of complications, it can significantly minimize the risk to your pet and provide you and us with peace of mind.
  • When checking the blood work we are testing for Kidney/Liver function, Anemic, Platelet, white blood count, and Glucose.
  • We offer the security of a hospital environment with our professional staff of doctors, licensed veterinary technicians, and veterinary assistants.

We are happy to bring your pet’s vaccines up to date while your pet is being groomed. If you have had your pet vaccinated during the past twelve months at a facility other than Pierson Pet Hospital, please provide proof of vaccines with a veterinary receipt; we can also verify them with a phone call to the veterinarian who administered the vaccines. (If your veterinarian is not in this area, please provide us with a phone number.)
