Pet Safety

 

At Rachel Ann's Country Clips Pet Grooming, your pet's safety is our first priority!  Our Spa however, has a controlled atmosphere so once your pet leaves the Spa, we want them to be just as safe.

 

Below are some things listed in and around your home that you may or may not realize are dangerous to your pets health.  

 

If you think your pet has been exposed to a poisonous substance, the ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center can help.  Call 1-888-426-4435, and consult with your veterinarian for follow-up care.
