Grooming By The Sea
We are seeing many more pets that are over due for grooming coming in that are matted all over. Understanding what we are facing as groomers is critical. We cannot demat these pets safely or humanely. This is a picture taken at another grooming shop (unknown) of a Doodle with a pelted coat. We do everything we can to try to "save" as much coat as possible, but the health of the pet is more important. Trying to brush out this type of coat is extremely painful to the pets. The mats this close to the skin cause bruising, sores and unhealthy skin conditions when left on the body. The first and foremost concern in our shop is always going to be humanity over vanity when it comes to the pets in our care.
