How Much Hair Loss Due to Spaying?
Probably a silly question in the scheme of things; but how much hair does the Vet usually shave when spaying? I hate to go through all this brushing, combing, conditioning, etc., and have a half shaved dog returned. Might as well get a puppy cut before hand. Also, how much matting will there be? Rosie is blowing coat, some matts under arms--don't mind the belly area shaved--I have been cutting those out. They don't show and why torture her. She is not going to be a show dog. But the leg area is so pretty, I would hate to start over.
Also, She has a place on the top of her head where the skin just seemed to split a little bit, about 1/3" long, more like a skined place. I am not doing the top-knot until it heals. This is the second time it has happened. Is this normal?
