ANATOMY OF A DOG GROOMING
Lebel Dog Grooming
& Doggie Day Care
We are very thorough and have our hands on every part of your dogs body. This enables us to alert you of anything we see that we feel should be brought to your attention, whether it's a tick bite or a lump. I'm happy to say that a dogs life was saved because of this when we alerted the client about a lump on the upper inner thight area of the dog's leg. (not an area most people would notice) After a follow up with her vet, the cancerous mass was removed. Happy Ending!!
