Matting nightmares

 

Matting can occur due to:

 

Certain breeds are more prone to tangling and matting.  I.e. Maltese is one

 

Poor maintenance - proper techniques not used to brush and comb along with the possibly of the wrong tools.  As a professional groomer, I may be able to help teach and offer tips to minimize this problem. 

 

Illness - fleas, hotspots, other medical issues which causes the pet to lick and scratch.

 

Static electricity - belly area from rubbing tummy’s along rugs or the wearing of coats/sweaters creating under arms/chest area tangles.

 

*I will not demat if it hurts your dog or cat.  If it hurts, I will shave instead. 

 

ABOUT COATS -  Because your pet is matted and/or severely tangled…there can be a variety of skin and hair coat care problems that may occur after a complete shave down of a dog, particularly the double coated breeds or those often referred to as the fur bearing rather than hair bearing. These included but are not limited to:  loss of hair growth, “Coat Funk” (the coat not growing back in the same texture and or color prior to shaving), Bald patches, Hyper pigmentation of the skin (darkening of the skin where the coat has not grown back), Sunburn, Loss of Guard Coat (top layer of coat), Coat re-growth in different directions (cowlick’s).  Other problems occasionally arise, during or after grooming, such as nicks, clipper irritation and mental or physical stress and trauma.

 

Note: Heavy coated or severely matted dogs that are shaved may have an extra charge due to wear and tear on blades and scissors.

 

 

 

AGE/ SPECIAL NEEDS

 

 It is known that pets who are getting up there in years, or who have medical conditions are at greater risk of injury, stress, and trauma.  I reserve the right to halt at anytime the grooming if I feel it is creating a problem and will charge accordingly.  I accept on case by case veterinarian referrals and will to the best of my ability and with the co-operation of the pets to make them as clean and comfortable as possible.

 

These are some of my “favorite specials”:

Holly - deaf

Holmes - old

Lucky - old & moles

Missing eye

Sheba - old

Snickers - old

Treacha

"A Dog's Soul"

Every dog must have a soul
Somewhere deep inside
Where all his hurts and grievances
Are buried with his pride

Where he decides the good and bad
The wrong way from the right,
And where his judgment carefully
Is hidden from our sight.

A dog must have a secret place
Where every thought abides,
A sort of close acquaintance that
He trusts in and confides.

And when accused unjustly for
Himself, He cannot speak,
Rebuked, He finds within his soul
The comfort he must seek.

He'll love, tho'he is unloved,
And he'll serve tho'badly used,
And one kind word will wipe away
The times when he's abused.

Altho' his heart may break in two
His love will still be whole,
Because God gave to every dog
An understanding Soul!
