What is a Certified Pet Aesthetician?

What makes a Certified Pet Aesthetician different from your average groomer? A Certified Pet Aesthetican has gone through stringent training including learning The Science of Skin as well as applications in a medical environment. Certified Pet Aesthetican studies include not only skin and hair health but also how to treat skin conditions, medical & dermatological terminology, proper records keeping and creating working relationships with veterinarians.

Following this training the students are required to finish their certification at Animal Health Services Surgical and Diagnostic Center in Cave Creek, AZ working in the therapeutic spa as well as hands on training with the veterinarians and Certified Veterinary Technicians. After passing an in-depth written test the groomer is presented with their official certificate recognizing them as a Certified Pet Aesthetician.
