Mats can become very painful for your pet , the skin can not function properly and cause sores and other issues to arise, in extreme cases the skin to twist and pull. Hematomas can develop on the ears after shaving an extremely matted dog due to the dog shaking it’s head and the blood rushing to the tips and rupturing. Getting your dog groomed on a regular basis ensures your dog is healthy and happy!
As groomers we can also detect certain skin conditions and early stages of illnesses that you may not notice and advise you to seek veterinary help.
Shaving a double coated breed such as Poms , huskies ..is NOT suggested, the Coat may get damaged by not growing back (alopecia) or growing back patchy, or you may get double the undercoat which will cause more shedding. I would recommend a de-shedding package which will help greatly!
