What to expect

When you call to schedule a grooming appointment you will be speaking with our client care representatives who will be happy to schedule a spa day for your pet. In the event you have particular specific questions or concerns we will also be glad to have you speak directly with one of our groomers on staff to ease any concerns that you may have.

Grooming services drop off is between 7-9am and pick-up is a call when done basis or a specific time per owner request.

Despite our friendly staff and fear minimizing techniques, some patients still struggle to enjoy their grooming experience. We are happy to provide alternatives such as sedated grooming, supervised by our highly trained medical staff while still utilizing our talented groomers.

If you suspect your pet is in need of such services our doctors will be happy to do a combination consultation with our groomer to accommodate your friend safely and comfortably. Please contact our hospital for more information or to schedule a consultation. (*Sedation services must be scheduled in advance and patients must be fasted prior to sedation.)

Meet Our Groomer!


Conny has been grooming for 23 years! She started with Hinsdale Animal Hospital in April of 2012. Conny got Grooming certified in 1995. Her favorite thing about this industry is how much of a strong passion she has caring for all dogs and cats. What inspired her to go into the Grooming industry is that when she was a small child she had two Newfoundlands that always went to the Groomer and from then on she was inspired, and knew that was what she wanted to do. Conny had a strong passion for grooming rescue dogs and making them look and feel better before they find their fur-ever homes.

Conny has a 7 year old Boston Terrier named “Boss” and two cats named “Kitty Kitty” and “Kitten”. She also had one son named Jaden. Conny has been a lifelong Chicago Cubs fan. Outside of work, you can find Conny riding her Harley and spending time with her friends and family.

A fun fact about Conny is that, she worked as Kennel Attendant from age 15-16 and at age 17 she became a receptionist and then a groomer! All while, she also was working as a veterinary technician at night while grooming during the day.
