Pre-Existing Conditions

It is our goal to take special care with each and every pet we groom. Some pets may have pre-existing conditions that we may not be made aware of. Grooming can be stressful and may expose a hidden condition. This can occur during or after grooming and may require immediate medical attention. If a situation should arise during grooming, we will stop the grooming process immediately and make every effort to contact you. In the event that you are unable to be reached, we may need to contact the nearest vet and seek medical attention at the client’s expense.

Senior Pets

When grooming senior pets and pets with health conditions, we wil make every effort to keep the pet comfortable and safe and limit handling them in any way that may exacerbate any medical conditions. Standing for long periods of time may be difficult for the pet. These pets will be groomed for cleanliness and comfort to lessen the stress.

We will present this information to before we preform our services on your double coated/undercoated dog and will not recommend a shave because of these problems:

  • loss of hair growth
  • coat not growing back the same texture
  • bald patches

Aggressive or Dangerous Pets

Owners MUST inform Southern Comfort Mobile Grooming if your pet bites, has bitten, or is aggressive to people, other pets or specific grooming procedure. Muzzles may be used if necessary. Muzzling will not harm your pet, and protects both the pet and the groomer. We reserve the right to refuse/stop services for such pets at any time before or during the grooming process, and charge a handling fee in addition to the regular grooming charge.

Southern Comfort Mobile Grooming does not accept people aggressive dogs. For Groomer’s safety as well as your pets, Southern Comfort Mobile Grooming has the right to refuse service in the event of a pet that cannot be handled safely.

Mat Removal

Pets with matted coats need extra attention during their grooming session. Southern Comfort Mobile Grooming does not wish to cause serious or undue stress to your pet, and will not continually de-mat your dog for you. Mats can be very difficult to remove, and may require the pet to be shaved. Removing a heavily matted coat includes risks of nicks, cuts or abrasions due to warts, moles or skin folds trapped in the mats. Prevention is the best defense against matting by scheduling regular grooming appointments. There will be an extra charge for mat removal.

Removing a heavily matted coat includes the risk of nicks, cuts and/or abrasions due to moles, warts or skin folds trapped in the mats. Heavy matting can also trap moisture near the pet’s skin which can cause mold, fungus, bacteria or skin irritations that exist prior to the grooming process. The after-effects of mat removal procedures may include itchiness, skin redness, self-inflicted irritations or abrasions, or failure of hair to re-grow. Client is responsible for the condition of the pet’s coat and will not hold Southern Comfort Mobile Grooming responsible in the event of adverse effects of mat removal.
