Grooming & Your Pet: How Grooming is Beneficial for Medical Reasons
When you take your pet in for grooming, you might be happy to let an expert deal with the tricky issue of cutting your dog’s nails or handle the bathing of an anxious kitty! While grooming is certainly important in how your pet looks, and maybe more importantly, how your pet smells, it is also a critical aid to veterinary medical care. Regular grooming is a great way to have another set of eyes on your pet and be on the lookout for things that might be awry and have the potential to get worse. Here are a few things that regular grooming can spot that can help keep your pet in good health.
- Ticks and/or Fleas-These tiny little parasites are masters at hiding- especially on animals with black or dark fur. Regular grooming helps ensure that your animals are thoroughly checked and cleaned of these blood-sucking parasites!
- Skin Conditions-While they have fur, animals suffer from skin conditions, too. These conditions can cause discomfort, cause a loss of fur or even become infected. Regular grooming helps prevent skin conditions in breeds with skin folds and allows us to treat skin conditions that are present.
- Allergies-Pets can get allergies, too! If you have a pet that is reacting badly to something, it may show up on their skin or in their fur. Regular grooming helps alert us when something has changed.
- Sensitive Areas-Sometimes your pet may be acting normally, but still suffering from an injury or experiencing pain. During grooming, we can keep an eye for areas that may be sensitive to touch, which can be indicative of a number of different things.
- Infections-During grooming, we clean your pet’s ears, eyes and glands. We can look for signs of good health and can spot issues such as infections. These may need to be treated by your vet.
These are just some of the issues that regular grooming can help address. If you have questions about regular grooming or are ready to set up an appointment, please give us a call today here at Plaza Veterinary Hospital.
At Plaza Veterinary Hospital, we offer pet grooming for patients from Burlington, Graham, Mebane, Glen Raven, Elon, and Haw River, North Carolina.

I can’t say enough praise about my experience here. Staff was friendly and professional and took such good care of my dog.

I took my 11 year old furbaby Ozzie Irwin there last week for the first time! He’s having issues with his eyes! The staff at the front desk were kind, courteous and professional! The veterinarian, Dr. Jordan, was kind and efficient! She told me what to do, she gave me all the medications Ozzie needed to get better and she was informative and caring! The Vet Assistants were also kind, professional and courteous! Thank you Plaza Veterinarian Hospital!
13:45 28 Aug 22
I can’t say they did everything they were supposed to( have to assume they did) but the one thing that I could clearly see, was how good of a job they did, trimming my dog’s nails. I had been to pet smart ( may be pet supermarket) anyway, I could never tell her nails were trimmed, so I quit taking her altogether. They kept telling me, you should bring her more, then eventually her nails will be better. Idk what kind of a fool I looked like, but from where I come from, when you do a terrible job, I don’t want to get more of a terrible job, that can get costly. Anyway, I am impressed how good her nails look, she will be a much happier dog.
17:20 23 Aug 22
I was on my way home from Virginia to North Carolina and had an emergency with my dog...I ran in here hysterical and crying...the man behind the desk...I wish I remembered his name...because he was amazing...just immediately jumped up and ran to my car for my dog. Took her inside and started working on her. The Veterinarian was amazing too. Very calm, overly helpful and patient with me. If I lived closer...this would be my vet of choice! Thank you all so very much!!!
10:05 23 Aug 22

19:33 29 Jul 22
The people are very friendly and professional. They do a great job and do not try to pressure you into services you feel like you cant afford. They are very reasonable priced. I recommend them to all my friends looking for someone to take their pets to.
19:08 17 Jul 22
We started taking our pets to Plaza after moving to the area two years ago and have always experienced compassionate care. The vet techs are helpful and kind. Both vets we have seen have gone above and beyond to explain care options for our animals. The admin staff have been very patient when helping to coordinate multiple prescriptions for our elderly pup.
14:42 13 Jul 22
Caring and wonderful staff! Helped our fur baby get better/over illness! These guys are the best!
17:24 23 Jun 22
Thank you to everyone at Plaza Vet for being absolutely amazing in taking care of all my furbabies and especially today for saving my baby's life from being bloated. I am forever grateful and so thankful to all of you.
22:20 17 Jun 22
Everyone is always kind to our animals and friendly with me. It's obvious that staff works extra hard to give everyone attention without making them feel rushed. The veterinarian and medical staff seem to be knowledgeable yet willing to learn something new from their pet owners
12:16 14 Jun 22
They took such good care of Elda (cat) <3 they also did a lovely job grooming her. It was such a relief since we just moved into town and it's not always easy to know the best place to go: perfect spot first try!
02:42 23 May 22
This place is nothing short of amazingggg!! I just got my puppy not long ago and I was freaking out about something I thought was a big deal (was but was normal) and I called them they helped me get in and out as quick as possible. Going back in a couple weeks for her second shot and I would recommend this place to anyone. They are extremely nice and will take great care of your babies . I promise you won’t regret going here ! 💕
18:15 14 May 22
After my vet closed down last year I had to search out a vet that offered grooming services for cats. I called around and spoke to the people at Plaza Veterinary Hospital about bringing my long haired cat in for a grooming appointment. They were very accommodating and friendly. I made the appointment and took my cat in. They were finished and called me to pick her up in just a couple of hours unlike previous groomers who kept her there until 4 before I could pick her up. She came back to me in good spirits and looking beautiful.The price of the service was very reasonable and the drop off and pickup went smoothly.From here on out this will be the vet I take all my animals to.
14:05 08 May 22
I brought my 10 week old puppy to Plaza and they took him right in, it was an emergency due to a vaccine reaction. Our regular vet had closed and I was panicking. The staff there was phenomenal. Dr. Basher was so patient and very caring explaining everything after the visit!! I would recommend Plaza 110%!!!
16:10 25 Apr 22
I just want to say how caring and professional everyone is here. I would recommend them to anyone that needs a caring veterinarian and staff. Thanks for taking care of my pets.
11:17 15 Apr 22
I love Plaza Veterinary Hospital! Both doctors are highly knowledgeable, skilled, and costantly learning new techniques, yet they are also very compassionate, understanding and real. Dr Wicker performed a dental procedure with extractions on my dog and did a beautiful job . The bill was so reasonable and communication is very open. My dog is not easy to deal with, he was a rescue and very needy, scared, and snappy. They love him anyway!
01:17 02 Apr 22
Always a pleasure to come to this office. They are always so kind and light-hearted. There are always positive vides, and I wouldn't go anywhere else.
14:54 18 Mar 22
Wonderful care! Very attentive & responsive. Reasonably priced
14:41 17 Mar 22
Both Dr. Wicker and Dr. Thomas are very compassionate about every animal that walks through the door, and it shows! The staff is courteous and caring as well. I couldn't ask for better care of my dogs!
18:27 03 Mar 22
Y’all are always so sweet! You all Fit us in, even if you’re busy! Thanks for being awesome
15:15 11 Feb 22
We just had our puppy who is a Coton de Tulear groomed with Melissa and could not be happier with the haircut she gave him. I had been concerned because not a lot of groomers are familiar with Cotons but she did an outstanding job and will definitely recommend her to anyone that wants a good groomer. Thanks again Melissa so happy.
20:43 26 Jan 22
Our experience was wonderful! Pebbles is recovering nicely. I am so grateful to Dr. Thomas and the staff for taking such great care of us!
16:37 13 Jan 22
Professional, courteous service every single time! Highly recommend Plaza Vet!
23:14 10 Jan 22
When the Vet that I had used since moving to NC closed...a friend said she used Plaza and was VERY pleased. Knowing how much she loved her Pups - I tried them. I absolutely have had the best experience with Medical Care, Boarding and Grooming. They are all jus AWESOME!!!!
14:19 18 Dec 21
Recently(yesterday) we had to make one of the hardest decisions a pet owner has to make by putting our precious Lucy down. She was a 12 y/o Maltese full of joy and so so much love. She became sick 6 weeks ago with an unconfirmed diagnosis. We tried many rounds of antibiotics and steroids to no avail 😢 Dr Thomas and her exceptional staff were so incredible during this difficult time. My Lucy was not afraid to go to this office ever. If I could rate this vet higher than a 5, I would. What they did for us and our precious girl is priceless. We will never forget the compassion you showed us❤️
15:23 04 Dec 21
I have three pets and feared I could not financially care for them all. My previous vet in town was very expensive, and the care was inferior compared to Plaza Veterinary. For example, one of my cats is difficult to work with and my previous vet sometimes was unable to examine her. At Plaza Veterinary this was not an issue. The vets and vet techs also answered in depth all my questions about dental procedures, and my cat breezed through extractions. I thank my lucky starts I changed vets. I could not be more pleased!
17:52 17 Nov 21
I love the care that each one of the employees and Doctors Provide. They are all so loving and caring to all my fur babies
14:56 13 Nov 21
The staff at this clinic are very friendly, easy to talk to, answer all questions in a polite manner. Very relaxed atmosphere, but professional at the same time. My appointment was at 4:30 and my dog was in the door by 4:31. There was a follow up call the next day to see how my dog was doing and to see if I had any questions. Would absolutely recommend!!
21:11 31 Oct 21
The staff and doctors are always very helpful & take time to explain things.
20:28 27 Oct 21
These folks know what they're doing. They are always so helpful and courteous. They love my pets as much as I do.
01:22 27 Oct 21
We have used Plaza Vet for all our pets through the years. The quality of care is excellent...they listen and explain, recommend. and follow up. From puppy to senior pets...we highly recommend
20:20 25 Oct 21
Cares about animals and their parents. Made a scary moment better for my dog & I. Thank you
04:49 17 Oct 21
My seven pack is new to Plaza Vet Hospital, and so far I have felt very welcomed, and have been very pleased with the attention, friendliness, professionalism, with every visit. I feel everyone listens to my concerns, answers every question, and even my most fearful girl seemed to actually enjoy being there!! They even helped me with one of my feral cats, who had major skin issues, and loss of hair. Dr. Thomas treated him for flea bite allergies, and completely cured him!! I am very pleased, and highly recommend them.
22:21 13 Oct 21
Another great experience for my fur baby, Gerdy,at Plaza Vetinary. Everyone is so friendly. I know Gerdy is in good hands.
15:18 10 Oct 21
Plaza Vet has taken care of my animals for over 30 years. Their doctors and staff have always been knowledgeable, professional and caring to all of my animals. I wouldn't trust my babies with anyone else!
23:38 08 Oct 21
They were very professional friendly polite and they were very good with my animals I would go there again And very knowledgeable
14:56 07 Oct 21
My girl dog was having issues with nursing and she received great care. Thanks a lot.
22:38 02 Oct 21
they are very caring for your pets..and the best thing i like was you can drop off..and pick back up later..do not have to sit with them..outstanding..thanks plaza vet..see you soon..
18:43 13 Sep 21
Great job (as always)! We appreciate you working us in on such a busy day. Thank you for caring about our baby.
19:56 09 Sep 21
I took my old cat in for an eye issue and they gave me a treatment plan that has already helped her eye improve in 3 days. I appreciated the way they handled her examination and I feel confident that she will be ok.
20:03 02 Sep 21
I always recommend Plaza to anyone I know with a pet. They have always given us the kindest and best care. I wouldn’t go anywhere else!
17:32 28 Aug 21
Dr. Wicker is the best and was patient and kind with my dog, Phoebe. She took the time to figure out what was wrong and was willing to spend 3 days with her to do so. We can't thank you enough for helping our girl feel better!
00:46 26 Aug 21
I highly recommend Plaza Veterinary Hospital. They are very caring and understanding without being judgemental. Melissa grooms our Cali. She does a great job; no sharp points are ever left on Cali's nails!
16:49 08 Aug 21
I just moved down to Burlington, and was not quite sure where to take my dog I read some of the reviews and brought my dog here in an emergency they took me in and since then they have helped me with any problems that my older dog has they’re very kind very sweet and they’re reasonably priced they don’t take it vantage of you and your feelings for your pet
13:01 05 Aug 21
When my dog has urgent problems, they find time to get her in ASAP.
13:24 27 Jul 21
They take very good care of my pets and I trust them completely.
22:04 23 Jul 21
I'm honestly VERY thankful for the assistance they gave me when I brought Buck, even without an appointment. All the staff were very kind and helpful and understanding for my concern with my dog when I didn't know what to do. I'm glad I went here and I'll defiantly be back.
21:12 12 Jul 21
We needed emergency care for my big fur baby. They were able to squeeze us in same day. They are so kind and patient with animals. I was impressed that the wait wasn't any longer since they had to work us in. Everyone from who answered the phone, the assistant that handled him and the doctor are all very kind and gentle. Will definitely be my Veterinary of choice from now on.
20:42 08 Jul 21
Love the people who take care of my animals at Plaza Vet. The Drs, the techs, and the receptionists are helpful and courteous. They make you feel like they care about your pets' health as well as your feelings about your pets.
15:36 23 Jun 21
Quick, easy and friendly service to pick up my cat's medicine.
16:23 22 Jun 21
everyone is really nice and my dog needed to be seen and they called me back and got her worked in before she got any worse
21:22 14 Jun 21
I called because my dog could not walk and I could not find a same day appointment-my local veterinarian passed away last year. The staff told me they would fit me in, told me to bring my baby in immediately, and then proceeded to recommend trying medication and rest before any big procedures-we would treat her in steps. Having worked in a Vet hospital, I was impressed with all aspects of this clinic-from the moment I first talked to someone, to the kind and compassionate care they gave to both myself and my pet. I have already referred my neighbor 🙂
14:59 14 Jun 21
Dr. Wicker and the staff at Plaza vet are wonderful people! My cat, Theon, has had dental issues the last couple years. We have a regular vet in Greensboro that we use for vaccines and wellness visits. Unfortunately, their prices for having teeth extracted was just something that we could not afford. Theon desperately needed multiple teeth pulled that were causes issues and my mom recommended Plaza, which is her regular vet. They offered a very simple dental procedure to help Theon get back to his normal self! I am very grateful that they were willing to see and take care of him. I have not been able to meet Dr. Wicker in person but she is very kind and amazing vet!
17:03 11 Jun 21
I would highly recommend this vet. I've taken my rescue dog and now two rescue kittens to them. The staff is very respectful anyone I've ever worked with treats me with the upmost respect and are extremely helpful in making sure you understand what's going on with your animal. If you're looking for an affordable vet that goes above and beyond then I definitely recommend going here. You wont regret it.
03:05 09 Jun 21
I had to have my baby girl Belle put to sleep today. She has been in Plazas care for a small amount of time. They did everything they could with great compassion. It was hard letting my baby go, but they made the process as peaceful as they could. She didn't suffer and passed peacefully. I highly recommend this place. Belle was an old girl. It was time to let her run pain-free.
18:24 05 Jun 21
We took our fur baby to get dental work done. She needed a few of her teeth removed because of lack of care. The Vet and the staff were EXCEPTIONAL with their professional conduct during her surgery! This Veterinarian is THE BEST that I have ever had the pleasure of working with. She was so thoughtful when giving Bella her meds! THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR CARE AND YOUR PROFESSIONAL CONDUCT DURING HER SURGERY! This is my FOREVER VET!! My wife and I love the care they give our babies!
21:33 28 May 21
These folks are so nice and helpful. We had our schnauzer groomed today and it is really a good grooming. Thank you to Melissa and all the wonderful folks at Plaza Vet. Leasa Henry
17:02 24 May 21
I (my dog) was not a current patient but was pretty sick. They fit me in a very short time. They diagnosed her, gave me suggestions of what we should do to treat her and got my permission to treat her. They got everything all together for her. They explained, in detail, how to give her the medications she was going home on and what to expect the next several days. I couldn’t have been more pleased with our care. I honestly can’t think of anything they could have done differently to make our visit better. It was perfect! Thank you so much. You really eased my worries.
14:56 24 May 21
I had never been to Plaza Vet before but they made room to see my sick kitty late on a Friday and again the next morning. So thankful for the care they gave him and for saving me the huge emergency vet bill! And then they called to check on him to make sure he was doing better. They will definitely be my primary vet moving forward.
16:06 17 May 21
Love the location, staff is professional and quick. They are kind to the animals and patient with the parents that don't know what's going on.
11:57 10 May 21
Have 3 doggies that are taken care expertly by Plaza Vet Hospital. Everything is so thorough with loving care.
22:20 05 May 21
Words can not express my gratitude to Dr Thomas and her staff!!! My sweet little 17 year old girl became ill around 2:30am last Saturday and our vet of around 10 years refused to see her and said to bring her back and leave her on Monday!!!!! I was so upset and when I called Plaza Vet they were so kind and agreed to see her! Turns out she was treated and had I waited she would have been really ill ! I am happy to say because of the quick and accurate treatment my girl is so much better!!!Needless to say my girl has a new Vet and I HIGHLY recommend Plaza Veterinary!!!
20:11 29 Apr 21
My dog is a new patient here, and we have been twice within the past ten days....once for a wellness checkup and the second for an emergency. The team was professional and caring and made us feel important. I completely trusted them to take care of my sweet senior dog, especially when she wasn't feeling well.
18:01 23 Apr 21
My fur babies have went to Plaza every since I was a child. As an adult I have a 13 year old and 7 yr old baby that are patients as well as boarding clients. One will not find a more pleasant and caring group of people. When I take them in I know they will receive the highest quality of care and compassion. The staff absolutely love what they do and it shows with the way they handle my "children." I trust my fur faces are in a loving environment in their care. Never once have I left the facility unsatisfied. Dr. Thomas and Dr. Wicker are kind, compassionate, highly skilled, extremely knowledgeable with an amazing "bedside manner". Melissa is an amazing groomer. The front desk staff are excellent, with Bonnie being extraordinary.
20:34 19 Apr 21
Good service and they try to work animals in if no appointments are open. knowledgeable doctors
15:37 12 Apr 21
Dr. Wicker and her staff are a dream to work with! Since you can't go in with your fur baby, Plaza has a friendly employee come out to the car to get your pup and to ask if there are any questions or concerns. Before Mullen was taken in for his appointment I was told what they would be doing with him today and was asked if he could have a treat or peanut butter. After Mullen's appointment was over he was brought back to the car while we waited for a call from Dr. Wicker. She talked with me about Mullen's appointment and answered a few more of my questions. So glad that we made the decision to establish care at Plaza Veterinary Hospital. I would highly recommend them to anyone.
16:27 07 Apr 21
Dr. Thomas and her staff at Plaza Veterinary Hospital in Burlington provide professional, kind, and excellent service. They are knowledgeable and interact with my pets like they were their own. I highly recommend!
14:16 05 Apr 21
The wait when I showed up was a little long but once they got my kitten inside and checked her out the processes was extremely fast. The doctor was very kind and extremely knowledgeable. She helped us out tremendously. The nurse who came out and taught us how to feed the kitten and help her use the bathroom was very outgoing and kind. I would definitely recommend this vet to anyone who has an emergency or if they just want a regular vet office for their pets!
15:40 03 Apr 21
Nothing! The visit was pleasant & the associates were friendly, so keep up the good work!
14:50 29 Mar 21
I have been taking my dog here for several years. Receive high quality care from friendly staff! Would recommend.
19:25 22 Mar 21
After being turned away from several others in the area we were so happy to find a vet that was able to fit our cat in short notice when we were anxious for his health. The service provided was excellent and the price was very reasonable for all that was done. Everyone we interacted with was very friendly.
21:56 19 Mar 21
Took my three animals here today for the first time and I was very impressed. They were highly professional and I was taken care of in a timely manner. It was also very affordable which is definitely a plus. I would highly recommend this vet office and will be taking my pets here for future visits.
16:01 17 Mar 21
They saw us when we needed them most, they quickly and correctly diagnosed what was ailing my dog. I can't say enough good things about them. Very professional, got back with me promptly and followed up with my regular vet.
