Mossimo's Tushy

I took Mossimo to a new groomer right near our house that I heard great things about… {Lesson learned: stick with what you know is good}
Hubby picked him up and when I was home with him later in the day I started to notice some weird behavior he would walk and then lay down flat on his belly, and was just alittle off. I thought maybe he just didn’t like being so hairless for the summer.
The next day he was constantly licking his backside, then would walk and sit on his butt, walk and sit on his butt. I looked between his legs and noticed (sorry this is probably too much info) the area where his testicles used to be, was super red. I called the groomer, she casually said, oh its probably just a reaction to the clippers, it happens to a lot of dogs, we will make a note for next time.
Long story short I spoke with the owner, who was very nice and told her that I super upset Mossimo was clearly uncomfortable he cant go for a full walk without stopping to sit on his butt, I guess because that area is moving from walking.. ? Ugh, vet said to use A&D ointment, with a cone and should go away in a few days… I think its maybe clipper burn?
Mossimo IS NOT a fan of the cone! Poor little bugger, I feel so bad for him

Kodi got clipper burn all around his sheath when he was neutered. (the vet said the tech shaved a much bigger area than she should have) He found THAT much more uncomfortable than being neutered! The vet had us use a topical numbing cream (can't remember the name) on it for a few days. It did go away, but I understand how you feel… there is no reason they should be made so uncomfortable. Poor Mossimo!

I accidentally did that to Jack. I had extreme guilt. I took him to the vet's to get the salve. Ever since, I won't use the clippers around that area. No bull's eye for him.

TTFN,
Pam
