Come meet our groomer, who we think is the best dog groomer in Valparaiso! If your dog is looking for a day of pampering, we can provide it. We have a full-service salon that provides everything, including baths, brush-outs, and full grooms.
Bring your pet into Arbor View Animal Hospital for a day of pampering and grooming. Grooming is an important aspect of keeping your pet healthy. Some pets can require grooming every 4-6 weeks to maintain a healthy coat and prevent matted fur. It’s important to introduce puppies to grooming when they’re young because they’re very receptive to new experiences early on. We have veterinarians on staff to examine your pet should the groomer find any problems (ex., ear infections, skin infections, fleas, etc.) or need vaccines.
Our grooming appointments are available Monday through Friday. Grooming costs vary and are based on breed, size, coat condition, and behavior of your pet. Please call us to discuss. Our groomer can also provide you with an estimate for grooming cost on the day of your visit when she sees your pet.

(price of this treatment is dependent on degree of matted fur, see groomer for details)
Flea Treatment ($14.50 + full-service groom or bath)- A specially formulated shampoo is used to kill fleas found on your pet. While we will remove fleas from your pet and give them a medication called Capstar, which will kill adult fleas for the next 24 hours, it is important to treat your home for fleas. Fleas can lay thousands of eggs in your home, which will hatch over time and cause a flea problem to continue. Following this treatment, it is important to keep your pet on flea prevention for the next 3 consecutive months to help break the flea life cycle. Please ask about our 30-day and 8-month flea prevention options.
Stinky Dog Treatment: If your pet had a run in with a skunk or other foul-smelling odor, we can help lessen the degree of that awful smell. We use a specially formulated shampoo to gently remove the oils on their coats that are causing the noxious odor. ($20 + cost of full-service groom or bath)
Oatmeal Bath: Replace our basic shampoo with an oatmeal bath, and add moisture and luster to their coat. ($5)
Dead Sea Mineral Mud Bath: Enriched with vitamins and minerals from the Dead Sea, this restores, replenishes and exfoliates your pets’ skin and enriches their coat. ($13/$18/$21- cost dependent on size of dog)
