  • This cat needs to be groomed at the VETS!

    A couple of days ago I posted a thread about how glad I am to be grooming cats again, and I am, but wouldn't you know it, yesterday I had a couple of cats come in that, if I was grooming in a regular shop, I wouldn't have touched with a ten foot pole! They were definitely guys I would have told the owner "Take them to your vet to be groomed! We can't handle them here."
    Well Guess What! I now AM the vet groomer, so I have to do them. Thank God for good vet techs! We got them both done without sedation, but it was certainly an interesting experience.

    I don't know what you charge, but when more than one person is needed to groom a cat, I think there should be an up charge b/c of it. B/C if takes 2 of you, you are then putting the 2 of you in harms way.

    On the other hand, I do love kitties and that is why I do groom them!

      I do charge more when the animal is difficult, especially in a case like this where a vet tech had to help. Also it takes more time to do. Fortunately, my boss is totally supportive of this.
