McHenry’s only DIY Dog Wash

As you can see in the above photo, we built a rack into the tank to allow for drainage. This keeps your pet’s feet out of the water while it drains through.  “This is an important feature because some dogs really don’t like to stand in water,” said Dr. Jim Carlson, owner of Riverside Animal Clinic & Holistic Center.  Additionally, it’s cleaner and helps avoid slipping in standing water.

Riverside Animal Clinic & Holistic Center also provides an additional tank for soaking for pets that have irritation on their skin.  This procedure is offered to owners and the tank is a floor based walk in model.
