Dog Grooming

Our clip is usually priced at 50 euros
At Groome Vets we believe the hygiene of your family and your pets are paramount. We believe this is an important part of our job. We promote regular grooming of family pets and as part of our grooming service carried out by our trained veterinary team of Claire, Danielle and Gwen we INCLUDE anal glands ears and nails in every pet we groom.
. Allow roughly 2 hours for a full groom with wash / dry included.
Prices start at 25 euro for a simple wash/dry/nail clip. Please allow the girls to meet you and examine your pet before giving a full and exact price quotation. Our staff are reluctant to price pet grooming unseen and will ensure the best value when they understand exactly what you and your pet need.
We guarantee we will give the best value grooming service you could find anywhere- as our approach is hygiene not cosmetics, we include all the little extras from trained veterinary staff like nail clipping, ear clean and glands evacuated which will add anything up to 40 euro in extra cost in other grooming centres.
As our trained veterinary staff do grooming we are also able to spot any health issues your pet may have underneath the coat and give you the proper correct advice on treatment. We also do medicated shampoo washes for sensitive dog breeds. This is a great advantage we have for being a veterinary practice with experienced staff. Please note matted coats will need a close cut

-​Dr Des Groome's motto .


“”My name is Des Groome, owner-founder of Groome Vets Ltd. I grew up on a stud farm in Carbury, co. Kildare surrounded by Mares, Foals, Racehorses, Cows, Dogs, Cats, Foxes, Rabbits and all God’s creatures. I think I was born to be a Vet and have worked with animals my entire life either on the farm as a stable groom, dog trainer, jockey, Vet. After an early veterinary career globe trotting and working with every species from racehorses to tigers, camels and parrots I established Kildare Vet Surgery in 1999 and built an accredited pet hospital here in 2005.

My guiding ethos as a Vet is to help animals live their best natural lives. There are 3 ways we do that which make us different from other practices- We focus on your animals lifestyle helping you understand your pet and their natural needs.
We focus on preventative healthcare for your pet.
And thirdly when your pet does become ill or elderly we focus on quality of Life issues before we do the usual array of scans and tests.
Our health plans are a life plan to keep your pet healthy. We are now developing daycare facilities, boarding kennels, a dog park, dog training service, pet fitness centre and our Groome Vet range of premium food. All these innovations are moving me closer to my life time aim of helping animals live their best natural lives. I have established also a sister company GymDog limited which will develop our Pet Gym service alongside Groome Vets to further improve pet’s lives by offering dog training, day care, fitness and therapy. This will make our hospital, resort and therapy centre for pets at South Green Road Kildare unique in Ireland.
I believe our mission of Helping Pets live their Best Lives is a unique statement in the Irish Veterinary Landscape

I recruit like minded people who’ve also grown up with animals and are here to support pet owners. “”
