Julie Steele is very excited to be a member of the wachusett animal hospital and pet retreat family. She has been grooming dogs and cats of all ages, breeds and sizes for the past 14 years. She is very excited to begin her journey here at Wachusett Animal Hospital and Pet Retreat and can't wait to meet all of our amazing pet parents and their furry kids. Animals are her life and her passion, she couldn't imagine a life without them. Julie strives to provide WAHPR's furry friends with the best experience possible. She truly believes when you look good you feel good. So stop by, say hi and let her make your furry kids look and feel better than ever. She looks forward to meeting everyone.

Julie has always specialized in working to calm a pet's fears and focuses on ways to help de-escalate and prevent any negative behavior during each groom, while working with the pet's individual personality to achieve a successful grooming outcome. Grooming  is always about the pet, the pet owner and the Groomer. Every aspect of the groom is important,  and decisions are based on what is best for all three. Julie takes performing grooming that is  supportive of the pet's  overall  health and provides better overall quality of life for the pet, very seriously. Every breed is different in it's own very unique way.

On top of this, Julie Steele also works directly  with each pet owner to help educate them and make  them aware of the best ways to care for each  individual pet's coat and skin, the manner in how to go about it, specifically in regards to each breed, age, lifestyle, medical condition, etc. Our Grooming Salon is also conveniently located within our  hospital here at Wachusett Animal Hospital and  Pet Retreat, so networking with our medical staff for care that Julie cannot offer within the Grooming salon is made possible. 

We are always looking for additional and improved services and products to add to what we already provide. As always, using more products containing  natural ingredients, and staying clear of harmful  products with an ingredient list full of chemicals, is a main priority. Products containing natural ingredients also help to provide a more calm and relaxing grooming experience. While some may call this "holistic grooming", we call this "integrative grooming" and have been doing this all along.
