Important Safety Update Regarding Dog Flu

At Modern Pet Salon, the health and safety of your beloved pets are our top priority. In light of the recent outbreak of dog flu, we’ve implemented stringent safety measures to ensure your pets well-being during their visit:

Isolated Kennels

To prevent any potential spread, all kennels are now isolated from one another.

No Shared Water Bowls

Each pet will have its own water bowl to eliminate the risk of cross-contamination..

Enhanced Cleaning Protocol

We're conducting hourly cleanings of all surfaces with veterinarian-grade cleaners to maintain the highest level of hygiene.

Vigilant Monitoring on Entry

Our team is carefully monitoring every pet at the time of entry. Please note, we reserve the right to kindly refuse service to any pet that shows signs of illness, to protect all our furry clients.

Express Appointments for Vulnerable Pets

Pets with autoimmune issues are encouraged to book express appointments for their safety and convenience.

Spacious Grooming Areas

We've arranged all kennels and grooming tables to maintain at least a 5-foot distance from each other, ensuring ample space between pets.

Optimized Air Quality

Our facility is equipped with two commercial-size ventilation systems, and we're conducting weekly filter changes to ensure the best air quality.

Your trust in us is invaluable, and we are committed to going above and beyond to keep your pets safe and healthy. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
