Four Paws Only is excited to offer the Nagayu CO2 Bathing System, a pet skin therapy treatment! Originally from Japan, this system is designed to help dogs with skin problems such as skin irritation, hot spots, yeast buildup, flea and tick bites, warts, odor, dandruff, and dry skin! The Nagayu CO2 Bathing System also helps and encourages hair growth and leaves the coat and skin noticeably cleaner and healthier. The Nagayu CO2 Bathing System is designed around a shower head that fits a CO2 tablet inside. The shower head provides a hydrating massage while dissolving the CO2 tablet in the final rinse. This very delicate process feels like a spa and takes approximately three minutes. The compressed CO2 tablet consists of carbon dioxide, hydrogen, and bicarbonate. The system adds ions into the rinse following the shampoo, which has been an effective medical treatment for humans for years. This method originated in a small village named “Nagayu” in southern Japan, where carbon dioxide naturally occurs in hot springs. A Nagayu Skin Therapy Treatment can be included in a regular grooming session. Treatment for specific or ongoing problems can occur during a bath if no grooming is required. While the Nagayu Skin Therapy Treatment will not cure skin problems, it will help alleviate the symptoms. Price: $10 
This is a more time-consuming therapy treatment. each step needs to “soak “on the pet for 5-8 minutes to work its magic.   while using the close/open/close technique, we apply a conditioning mask, spa shampoo, and finishing conditioner.  STEP ONE “CLOSE” This step closes the cuticle to protect it during the cleansing step.  STEP TWO: “OPEN” CLEANSE: This step opens the follicle to allow for gentle cleansing.  STEP THREE: “CLOSE” This step closes the skin & hair to retain hydration and give back the oils, minerals & collagen that were removed during the cleansing process Why do I have to apply the products per these instructions? Since pets absorb dirt & toxins from the ground up into their sebaceous areas (tummy, feet, legs, and other areas with less hair) it is important that the products are applied there first & allowed to soak for 5 full minutes. Why do I have to let the product soak on the pet for 5 minutes? To get the best results and never have to re-bathe, the products must soak a full 5 minutes on the pet. Also, it can take up to 5 minutes for the skin and hair to close or open, depending on the step. During STEP 2, the cleanser molecules need time to attach to the offending molecules so they will lift and rinse off. Price: $25 SPA  Price: $40 LUXURY
This service includes bringing your feline in for monthly brush out sessions. Your pet’s session includes a thorough brush out, combing. If there is matting a full grooming would be suggested to start with and then follow up with brush outs. ensuring your high maintenance longhaired cat will look fabulous all year round...WITHOUT the commitment of at home brushing sessions. Price per session: $60-80
Finding out your pet has been sprayed by a skunk is traumatic to both yourself as well as your pet! We can easily manage the pet portion of this catastrophe. We offer EMERGENCY DESKUNKING appointments during business hours. Our 5-step treatment removes up to 95% off the oils associated with skunk odor. This treatment includes first administering gentle soothing eye drops to help prevent inflammation and irritation caused by the skunk spray. We begin DE skunking with 1- 2 deodorizing soak baths (depending on degree of foulness) followed by a thorough rinse. Time is "of the essence" ...when dealing with a skunked pet. The sooner your pet receives a DE skunking treatment after being "sprayed" the better the results. The longer skunk spray is allowed to "settle and dry" into your pets coat the more difficult it is to achieve optimum results. We understand that skunk encounters typically occur dusk to dawn.... our spa is open early...beginning at 7am Tues-Sat allowing for an immediate response to your pet’s needs. Price: $65 (in addition to standard grooming fees)
This treatment is excellent for pets that have a history of chronic ear infections/issues. treatment provides a deep inner ear cleanse by combining irrigation and suction to gently dislodge dirt, excess wax, yeast, ear mites, and other debris from the inner ear canal where other ointments, sprays, and drops never get to. This treatment also aids in preventing future ear infections and issues. Price: $25
This 3-step service offers a therapeutic and moisturizing treatment for pets with excessively dry, itchy skin. This treatment works great, especially in winter, when home heating can dry a pet's coat and cause excess shedding and dryness. It begins with an oatmeal and melaleuca bath to soothe itchy skin, followed by an exfoliating lotion massaged into the pet's coat to loosen dry skin and improve circulation. The final step provides a coconut oil hydrating rinse that provides therapeutic long-lasting effects. The result is a bright, radiant, shiny coat. Add on to any Spa Package - $25

Hydro-Massage & Skin Ozone Therapies Conditions hydro-massage and skin ozone therapies can treat. ALLERGIES Dermatitis flea-allergy | Dermatitis food-allergy | Atopic dermatitis FUNGUS Dermatophytosis (Ringworm) | Dermatomycosis | Malassezia Dermatitis | Candidiasis SEBORRHEA Moist seborrhea | Dry seborrhea LEISHMANIASIS   For skin and coat nourishment | A force & barrier against external agents ALOPECIA (Hair Loss)   Trauma | Surgical shavings| Follicular atrophy| Adenitis of sebaceous glands | Follicular dystrophy | Alopecia of color dilution | Skin hydration ITCHING To combat the proliferation of bacteria and Malassezia that cause itching. WOUNDS Prevent or treat infection | Encourage healing MISC. APPLICATIONS Soothe arthritic joints | Post-surgical orthopedic joint therapies | Following healed incision. Using the Ozone Machine during therapy will increase the healing time by more than 10 times than just therapy alone. By using our therapy products and the ozone machine, you can get results that medications alone can’t do. Ozone is not only a very powerful oxidizing agent but also a very powerful non-chemical disinfectant. It has the unique feature of decomposing to a harmless, nontoxic, environmentally safe material: oxygen. In Europe, ozone is used for many purposes: color removal, taste and odor removal, turbidity reduction, organics removal, micro flocculation, iron, and manganese oxidation, and most commonly, bacterial disinfection and viral inactivation Understanding that Hydro-massage & Skin Ozone Therapies are not a drug or a magic bullet, it is recommended to always treat patients under the direct supervision of a licensed veterinarian. Hydro-massage and pet skin ozone therapies are therapeutic tools that can aid the groomer in regaining the health of the skin. In the end, the immune system has to do the work of healing the body and skin. Ozone therapy is best performed along with other treatment modalities to achieve the best results. The number and frequency of treatments will vary with the condition being treated. A treatment plan is determined individually, depending on the patient’s specific skin issues. $60 a session

Puppy Parent Testimonials

We have been using Four Paws for over two years for Tucker, our lab, and we couldn’t be happier. They are always communicative, timely, very sweet. We have used them for walks, as well as overnight stays, and have been thrilled every time.

June M.

Our dog is super skittish and has had unfortunate experiences with groomers in the past. Shannon is well-versed and experienced with our breed and her coat needs. There isn’t a groomer I trust more than Shannon.

We look forward to many more sessions—Thank you!

Nikki J.

My dog, Albus, had the best experience here. Our little guy is older and timid. Four Paws is always so gentle and made sure he was comfortable in every way. Shannon and her crew are such a delight.
