Many people book for a grooming service that don't always need doing. We prefer to collect payment after we have completed the grooming so that we can total your order up correctly. We do not want our customers to overpay, or pay for something that doesn't need doing.

Exotic Wings & Pet Things Inc. is excited to offer a special seniors discount for grooming active on the first Wednesday of each month. The senior discount is for pet owners aged 65 and up. Proof of age may be required.

This program is available for regular customers only and minimum purchases apply.

Senior's pet grooming discount is valid for a total of five individual pets.

If you know you are not going to make your appointment time or are going to be late, please call us before your appointment time to inform us.

We have been grooming birds for over 28 years. We have corrected many malformed beaks and some veterinarians refer their clients to us.

Grooming frequency varies between individuals and species. Generally, nails will need to be done 3-4 times per year.

Customers coming for wings trimmings are usually here 2-3 times per year.

Beak trimming is much less predictable, if we are correcting a malformed beak we may need you here several times over the span of a few months. If it is cosmetic, you may have it done one or two times per year. Many birds don't ever need their beak trimmed. We will always turn away a beak grooming if it is unnecessary. 

Absolutely! We can groom just about any bird from the smallest finches to the largest cockatoos and macaws. We do suggest that you call ahead to ensure we have someone here who is able to groom larger parrots. 

Our grooming appointments are made to accommodate up to 5 birds so long as each bird has their own suitable carrier.

Most birds are hardy and tolerant of a range of temperatures. Very rarely do we reach temperatures that actually make it unsafe to transport birds. With a proper cover fitted to the carrier and a preheated vehicle birds can be safely transported as low as -25° C. On the other end of the scale, 30° C is getting too hot. Temperatures outside this range do not mean grooming needs to be cancelled, there are just more precautions to be taken during transportation.
