Bloomfield Pet Grooming Clients:
The past two years have brought changes and challenges to DePorre Veterinary Hospital and Bloomfield Pet Grooming and each continue to evolve with these developments. Among these changes have been an unprecedented demand for pet grooming services, as well as the ever-expanding need for high quality veterinary medical care. It has become apparent that continuing with our current model for grooming services is not a sustainable approach moving forward. Therefore, in order to better serve you, our valued customers, as both veterinarians and groomers, we will be moving Bloomfield Pet Grooming (BPG) and the groomers you love to a new location nearby (Woodward corridor in northern Royal Oak). BPG will be renamed Exclusive Pet Grooming (EPG) and its operations and ownership will be taken over by a groomer-led management team with over 10 years experience managing some of the most well-run grooming operations in Metro Detroit.
This new management team shares the values that have always been part of our foundation, including a commitment to the highest standards of grooming and a belief that the health, comfort and well-being of your pet is always the top priority. Exclusive Pet Grooming will be opening a brand new facility specifically for our clients with the same group of talented stylists you have used for years. EPG will honor all existing Bloomfield Pet Grooming appointments. This opportunity will allow us to continue our focus on providing the highest quality medical care for our patients, while advancing our veterinary care and services.
At this point, we will not offer veterinary services during the grooming appointments at the new Exclusive Pet Grooming location, but we anticipate having priority appointments available for your pet to be seen at DePorre Veterinary Hospital if the groomers notice any issues that need more immediate attention. We will also continue to offer drop off appointments if you are looking for the convenience of having your pet seen at our hospital to receive wellness care. Our staff at Bloomfield Pet Grooming will be working with Exclusive Pet Grooming to set up and transfer our 2022 schedule, as well as communicate our pricing changes effective 12/10/21. This was a conscious decision made by our leadership team to honor all existing grooming client relationships. These price increases are necessary due to the increased costs for staff wages, shampoo, utilities and other grooming supplies. Exclusive Pet Grooming will also be accepting new grooming clients as well.
As a result, we look forward to providing an opportunity for high quality grooming for clients on our extensive waiting list and for veterinary clients looking for a grooming referral. Scheduling directly through Exclusive Pet Grooming won’t be available until after February 1st. We anticipate a lot of questions and want to assure you we will be reaching out to each current grooming client to confirm your appointments at the current BPG facility through January. We will be providing Exclusive Pet Grooming with the current schedule and you will be hearing from them directly to confirm your continued appointments starting sometime in February at the new Exclusive Pet Grooming location. More details will follow. The anticipated date of this transition is early February 2022. Bloomfield Pet Grooming has been a part of the DePorre Veterinary Hospital family for a long time and we are both proud of the service they have provided as well as excited for this transition, and the new opportunities that it will provide. As always, we are available to answer any questions.
