At Mountain View Veterinary Health Center (MVVHC), we are focused on providing a fear-free experience for your pet. Our staff members are trained to interpret body language and respond appropriately to your pet. However, in some cases, pets are still too fearful or anxious to allow us to groom them in a safe manner. When this occurs, we recommend administration of calming agents or sedatives to reduce patient anxiety and ensure that we can care for your pet without causing undue stress.
LEVEL 1 ($25+): Oral sedation will be administered, and your pet will be given time for the medication to take effect before we resume the grooming appointment. If this is effective, we may recommend that you take home a prescription sedative that you can administer prior to future grooming appointments.
LEVEL 2 ($160+): Injectable sedation will be administered, and your pet will be monitored by a qualified veterinary technician through the course of the grooming appointment and during recovery.
LEVEL 3 ($280+): Injectable sedation and anesthesia will be administered, and your pet will be monitored by a veterinarian through the course of the grooming appointment and during recovery.
