Greater Kailash-II centre boasts top-notch pet grooming services in addition to specialised pet care and diagnostic
The multi-specialty state-of-the-art petcare chain DCC (Dogs Cats & Companions) Animal Hospital, has reopened its Greater Kailash II branch in New Delhi, located on the main Savitri Road. With its primary centre at Gurugram, it was earlier operational in Greater Kailash (E-556, Block E, part-II) as a hospital. But now, the centre has been revamped into a holistic pet care facility that has end-to-end services like grooming, consultation, and The centre, which is now bigger and better, houses two consultation rooms, two grooming rooms, and a host of pet diagnostic and therapeutic services. This centre has been revamped and reopened after a lot of feedback from clients and users who sought a one-stop-shop for pet care in this area of Delhi-NCR. After listening to their loyal customers, DCC decided to relaunch the GK centre with an even wider array of services to meet all their needs. The facility also has two experienced veterinary doctors available – Dr Chetan Sharma and Dr Shivam under the guidance of Head of Veterinary Services at DCC, Dr Vinod Sharma.
The staff is trained specifically to address all the needs of animals, and offer care that is at par with that of humans. Certain breeds also need frequent grooming, and in summers, the demand goes up even further as pet parents wish to get their pets groomed regularly, so they can feel as comfortable as possible. But what sets the centre apart is the extra care and focus that is put on how the pets are handled and treated, and also in selecting the grooming products used to ensure all skin and fur types can be treated well. While regular checkups, treatments, and grooming are critical for our furry companions, their experience during the processes and their feelings are just as important and valid. Hence, DCC’s veterinarians and staff take special care to make sure the animals feel as comfortable and at ease as possible, instead of being scared or anxious. Furthermore, each product that is used on the animals is also chosen by veterinarians, after careful consideration of the skin type, fur type, and medical conditions of the pets.
Furthermore, DCC has introduced a number of bundle packages for both medical and grooming services, giving Dr Sharma said, “We think from the perspective of pets, therefore for us the views and thoughts of pet parents are very important and we believe that our insights lie right there. Medically, we have an experienced robust team, and we’re committed to the cause of pets, they are a part of us. We think as one, treat as one. Be it grooming or any other service, care has to be taken that only the best techniques, products and services are provided. We are growing rapidly, and GK II has been around for over a year, we revamped as we understood the need gap. We need to grow and include more offerings for our furry ones.” Dr Sharma is known as one of India’s foremost veterinary practitioners. After graduating from HAU Hisar, he headed a leading Animal Welfare Organisation from 1994-2013 as the chief officer in charge. During this period, the organisation achieved a place in ‘Limca Book of Records as he organised the first blood bank in India for animals. He has also received his training in Animal Welfare from the Royal Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, UK, and advanced Clinical Training from Zurich Veterinary College, Switzerland. He has presented and written papers on animal welfare and veterinary services both in India and abroad. Over the last 30 years, he has collected a wealth of experience understanding animals.
