Cat Grooming Rates

To provide Standard High-Quality Cat Grooming it takes a minimum of 1.0 hour regardless of breed.

To provide Premium Cat Grooming it takes a minimum of 1.5 hours regardless of breed.

Different breeds take different amounts of time to groom. Please see my Breed-Based Average Grooming Time document for approximate time it takes to groom specific breeds.

Other variables such as frequency of grooming, if brushing is done by owner between groomings, coat condition, hygiene, overall health, and temperament can add time needed to complete the grooming. 

Estimates will be provided upon request prior to grooming and are individualized based upon your pet's breed, size, hygiene and coat condition, which determines the difficulty and time needed for a proper grooming. Kittens (under 6 months) receive a 10% discount on everything. Although cats generally require less grooming, and there is less variation in size and breed, their behavioral tendencies make bathing and grooming and physical services and treatment much more difficult compared to dogs.

Clients that plan ahead and schedule appointments far in advance can receive up to a 20% discount for each grooming appointment. See Advanced Scheduling Discounts for details.

Dr. Pete’s Groom + Care Pricing: With Dr. Pete’s mobile pet grooming and care you get high-quality and premium grooming and care with physician insight which may cost slightly more than what it costs for an average groomer’s service, but less than what a veterinary office visit typically costs. My entire focus is solely on your pet, one at a time, and provides more than what a typical pet groomer can provide. In addition to high-quality and premium grooming, I provide basic animal care services, first aid, basic veterinary treatments and veterinary insight to help you determine if you need to get additional veterinary services from a licensed veterinarian. **

* Add 50% for emergency services or if expedited services are needed prior to the next available appointment date.

** Dr. Pete Sutherland, DVM is a retired from both veterinary medicine and teaching (Allied Medical Health, Anatomy and Physiology and Biology) and does not have a current active veterinary medical license. Dr. Pete will not provide any treatments, nor medicines that require a veterinary medical license.

Dr. Pete, Sutherland, DVM does not sedate, nor tranquilize pets, however he has a professional relationship with a local licensed veterinarian and will occasionally set up appointments during which the licensed veterinarian can provide sedation or tranquilization in conjunction with Dr. Pete’s grooming and care. 

Please refer to the services and rates list for the services that Dr. Pete will provide. 

 In case of an emergency for your pet, call your licensed veterinarian or an emergency veterinary clinic.
