“Pampering Pets, Sharing Love”

Do you have a dog with behavior issues and need to give them a sedative?

Here, we explain why we do not groom dogs under sedatives.

Sedation has historically been used to calm dogs during grooming, but it’s no longer a favored approach due to safety concerns and limited effectiveness. The main issue with sedation is that it can lower a dog’s blood pressure. When a dog is stressed or anxious, sedation tends to be less effective. In fact, once a dog encounters a situation that triggers adrenaline, it can fight the sedation, leading to anxiety and potential risks, including a sudden stop in the heart rate.

Sedating a dog for grooming should never be done without the supervision of a veterinarian who can monitor the dog’s heart rate. If you’ve tried other options without success, consider finding a groomer who works with a vet, ensuring your dog is under proper supervision and their heart rate is carefully monitored.

Sedatives should only be used as a last resort, such as when a dog doesn’t respond to behavior modification or when there’s a risk of defensive biting. Your dog’s safety is our top priority, and we want to ensure that any sedation is administered with the utmost care.

Please be aware that if your dog does require sedation, make sure there is a veterinarian present during the grooming process.

Did you know that dogs feel different after their grooming session?

Reasons Why Your Dog Is So Sleepy After Grooming

  • Physical Exertion During Grooming: Grooming can be tiring and a bit stressful for your dog. Brushing, trimming, and clipping can also be physically demanding. It’s normal for dogs to feel sleepy after grooming because they need to stand still for a while. This is usually a temporary effect that will go away after some rest. However, it depends on their age and health, as some dogs may feel it more than others.
  • Relaxing Nature of the Grooming Session: Your dog might feel sleepy after grooming because the session was relaxing and enjoyable. A well-groomed dog is a happy dog! The brushing, warm water, and pleasant scents of grooming products can create a soothing atmosphere. Grooming can release endorphins, which are natural substances that make your dog feel happy and relaxed. It’s similar to how you might feel after a massage.
  • Temperature Changes at the Groomer’s: Most grooming salons keep a comfortable temperature for their furry clients. When your dog goes from the outside air into the salon, their body adjusts to the new temperature, which can make them feel sleepy. Plus, warm baths and blow dryers can raise their body temperature, creating a relaxing experience that makes them feel drowsy.
  • Excessive Mental Stimulation: When you take your dog to the groomer, all the new sights, sounds, and smells can be mentally tiring. Getting attention from strangers can also wear them out, making them feel sleepy. Your dog is just tired and needs a nap! It’s normal and temporary. It’s like when you’ve had a long day at work and just want to go home and sleep.
  • Separation Anxiety: Your dog is a social animal and relies on you for food, shelter, and protection. Being separated from you can make them anxious, causing them to act tired or sleepier than usual. This is a sign of separation anxiety. Leaving them with a groomer, even for a short time, can cause some distress
  • Fear and Stress: When you take your dog to be groomed, they might feel a bit scared about the experience. The sensation of having their hair cut or trimmed, loud noises, and being around strangers can make your dog uneasy. When this happens, your dog’s body releases cortisol to help them calm down, which can make them fall asleep right after grooming.
  • Depression from Losing Its Coat: Most dogs love getting groomed, but some dogs can’t handle it well. Dogs with long or thick coats tend to be more attached to their hair than those with shorter, thinner coats. Cutting their coat can sometimes shock them, making them feel depressed or tired. Also, the grooming process can be painful if your dog has any mats or tangles in their fur.
  • Pain: Grooming can sometimes cause pain or discomfort, especially if your dog has any health issues. This can make the grooming session tiring for them. Dogs in pain might show symptoms like shaking or heavy breathing and may have trouble standing up straight after grooming. If you notice any signs of discomfort, consult your vet for advice on how to help them recover
