About Animal Magic

The business was started from scratch in August 1998.

A small shop in Mudgeeraba, Queensland was rented. The shopfit very basic. A single stand dryer, a set of clippers a few blades, scissors, a second hand hydrobath. The most important component being a skilled and hard working Veterinary Nurse/Groomer.

Letter box drops and referrals from the local Vets got us going and it wasn't long before our reputation was established.

In August 2004 the salon was relocated to it's current address, Shop 3/31 Railway Street as we had outgrown the original premises.

The current salon has a large reception containing all types of 'fancy stuff'. Behind our large viewing window is the 'styling room' where hair cutting and design is on display.

The washing & blow drying room is separate. When you see a Husky blow dried you'll know why.... just think snow storm!

All of the grooming apparatus is updated regularly to improve the efficiency and quality of our work.

Our second salon was purchased in June 2009 and was previously known as "Snappy Snoopy". We changed the name and renewed the shopfit, our sister salon now offers the exact same services as at Mudgeeraba.

About the owner

Emily Myatt is a Certified Master Groomer and qualified Veterinary Nurse.

She has worked at Veterinary Surgeries on the Gold Coast and in England, UK.

Pet Grooming is just one of the Veterinary Nurses duties, if at least to prepare for surgery of a wound site.

The advantages of a Veterinary Nurse/Owner operated business is that we can often identify health problems in the pet an owner may have overlooked.

Skin problems that are hidden under a dirty and knotted coat. Dental problems or ear infections that require veterinary attention.

Emily has completed certificates from PIAA in Cat Grooming, Companian Animal Hygienist. She has a Certificate in Small Business Management and Cert IV Workplace Training & Assesment.
