A huge thank you to all of our wonderful client family for your many years of love and support. We have been blessed with the most wonderful groomers on earth. Life can be bittersweet at times - as it is now. Both Tina & Nicole are stepping back from the physical demands of grooming and are moving into administrative positions. Tina is taking an administrative position at a veterinary office, and Nicole will stay here and take on the Manager of Pet Client Enrichment. We are truly happy for both of them.

How long does it take for grooming?
Small dogs and short haired dogs generally take about 2 ½ hours. Larger dogs and thick coated dogs can take upwards of 5 hours depending on drying time.
Why does it sometimes take over 4 hours for grooming?
There are many factors that come into play during the course of a day in a grooming salon, namely, fleas and stress. Fleas, of course, must be treated immediately and that alone can hold up all other appointments up an hour or more depending on the severity. Dogs that are extremely stressed may need several breaks that adds to the appointment time and can put others on the schedule behind. We put the well-being of the pet at the forefront, not speed. Grooming can be a stressful necessity for some dogs so we do not do "express" grooms and we will not hurry our care for the sake of the owner that wants it done quickly. We mean no disrespect but if you want it done "quick" then while we are the best salon for your pet…we are not the best salon for you.
What vaccines are required for grooming?
Rabies, Distemper and Bordetella (kennel cough).
Do I need an appointment for grooming?
Yes. We can on occasion do walk-ins and nail trimming does not require an appointment.
What kind of products do you use on the animals?
We only use products approved for animals.
Can my pet get fleas from your facility?
It is possible to pick up a flea from a salon but if your pet is on flea treatment, the flea will not survive.
Do you cage dry with heat?
Absolutely not! Even though heat speeds the process of drying and is best for fluff drying, we NEVER cage dry with heat due to the extreme danger posed.
What qualifies your staff to be able to groom my pet?
All of our grooming staff have years of experience and are sent regularly for continuing education.

Great place! I highly recommend it! I'm a manager at Charleston Animal Society and this boarding facility is fantastic. Very easy going and they truly connect with your pets when they stay.
A DEFINITELY unique place! Would give 6 stars if we could!
I toured every facility in the area and The Pet Mahal is by far the best!

"Best boarding experience ever (and Danny's first!) I got videos, pictures, texts, every day with updates on how he was doing. Tons of love and affection and interaction with my boy. They treated him as if he were their own. Love this place!!!"
"Mika had her first visit to The Pet Mahal. She highly recommends it to all her four legged friends. Got a facial. Got her nails done. Got her hair cut, combed, and a bow. Met the nicest lady there that runs the place. There is a mini rainbow row for dogs and they have treats too! Just the place for a sweet southern girl to go get pampered. Thanks, and we will be back soon!"
