Elegant Pets Mobile Spa’s Terms and Conditions………
Before The Groom.
Please ensure that your pet has been given the opportunity to be relived and walked before their grooming/spa treatment, as this will ensure that they get the maximum enjoyment out of their pamper session.
You must inform Elegant Pets of any medical conditions your pet may have or is receiving treatment for.
Unfortunately Elegant Pets is unable to groom puppies until 2 weeks after their second vaccinations.
Elegant Pets offer a saver Puppy Package, all three seasons must be used before your pets is 6 months old and will only cover bath, dry, brush, hygiene trim, ear cleaning and nail clip. If further works are required then these will be priced separately. Prices for the puppy groom and any additional works will vary depending on Breed and coat condition.
After 6 months Full Groom charges will apply.
Elegant Pets does not offer anal glad emptying as a service as it is recommended under the veterinary surgeons Act 1966 that only veterinary surgeons are allowed to diagnose conditions and undertake treatment such as expressing anal glads. Please contact your vets if you are concerned.
If your pet is matted you agree to allow Elegant Pets to shave your pet if it is deemed to be matted to an extent that de-matting would cause pain and suffering to the pet. Elegant Pets shall not be held liable for any after grooming effects of the de-matting shaving process and problems uncovered on a matted or otherwise neglected coat. These include, but are not limited to: itchiness, skin redness or self inflicted irritations/abrasion from excessive external rubbing. You understand that the time and costs associated with de-matting are unpredictable and subject to the condition of your pet and an additional charge will be add onto of the full groom price.
