Pet Grooming Services

RxTRA CARE Pet Sitting & Services LLC offers therapeutic spa treatment to your pets in the comfort of your own home. Grooming services can be added to any sitting service for your well-behaved pets, or performed separately with a $15 travel fee to clients within our service area. We use high quality, hypoallergenic products and and low stress practices to ensure the health, safety, and wellness for your pets. And because even pets without fur deserve a little extra pampering and TLC, we offer grooming services to to your scaly and feathered companions as well. 

 

Conditions apply: The goal of all of our services is to provide a  stress-free, beneficial experience for your animal companions. Sometimes pets just aren't receptive to the services we want to provide, and we will always respect their wishes. Sometimes a bath or a pedicure is a team effort, and we will schedule these services when we have an extra hand. Sometimes they just want their mom or dad nearby for asurance, and in these instances we will reschedule services for when you are available to provide such a support system.
