BEFORE AND AFTER PHOTOS
Groomers have the right to refer your pet to a qualified vet if they deem it necessary. A Groomer is not a qualified vet and should not be used as such if proper medical treatment is needed.
A groomer is not medically trained as a vetinarian and therefore should not be considered to be one.
A groomer is not a cheap option to having treatment such as cutting extremely long nails which a vet should be considered to do.
If your dog comes to the salon and is in need of special treatment by a Qualified Vet you will be advised of it.
At my salon if i deem it necessary to advise you to take your dog to a vet i reserve the right not to cut your dogs nails as cutting your dogs nails could make matters worse if the dog is in need of special treatment by a vet
INFECTED DOGS EARS
Infected Ears in a dog is extremely painful and needs special treatment by a vet. Pulling hair out of infected ears of a dog is BARBARIC and Unnecessary, as well as extremely painful for the dog.
At my salon I do not pull hair out of dogs ears as their is no medical evidence that the hair in a dogs ears causes infections, the infections occur when OWNERS neglect and fail to clean out their dogs ears on a regular basis.
Hair in a dogs ear was put their by mother nature the tiny hairs catch debris and stop the debris and dirt from entering the inner ears and causing infections.
This is the latest info on plucking dogs ear hair: And I quote:
"veterinarians and groomers have been speaking out against ear plucking on the grounds that it can further irritate an ear canal already prone to irritation and lead to ear problems that may not have
occurred otherwise. They point out that plucking the hair from a dog’s ear canal leaves minute openings–essentially, tiny wounds–in the skin where bacteria can simply settle more easily.
Additionally, because (a) dogs generally don’t like the feeling of hair being plucked out of their ears and (b) plucking can leave the skin irritated, a dog may be more likely to scratch and worry at his ears, which will only make any ear problem worse.
Also, a dog with already-irritated or -infected ears should not undergo a plucking except under direct supervision of a veterinarian, as it could worsen the condition of the dog’s ears."
Plucking of ear hair is entirely at the disgression of the Groomer!
The Qualified Groomer undergos a grooming charter ie: "Upholds the honour of grooming as a profession and adheres to the welfare of the dog" - so therefore: If the groomer believes that plucking hair out of a dogs ears is detrimental to the dog, then it is up to the groomer to decline in that practise.
Matted dogs suffer with pain, as most dogs have double coats under the first layer it is normally quite nice looking but once you get under the first layer to the undercoat you can then experience a lot of matts and knots - this can commonly occur on long haired undercoated dogs - these type of dogs can be quite aggressive to groom, because matts and knots hurt the dog and they obviously dont want to be hurt - As well as battling to undo the knots it is kinder to the dog to give him or her a thorough good shave down to start all over again as pulling combing and tugging out the knots is very painful for the dog - Advice is - dont just brush your dog make sure you get a comb through it as well !

Dogs Nails a Warning and quick tutorial
A dogs nail is not like a humans nail you cant just cut it right down short below the paw line, it has a 'quick' which is their for blood supply this quick [blood supply] extends from the paw right into the nail itself.
To cut a dogs nail be very careful to take a good look at the nail, because in light coloured nails you can see the pink tinge within the nail itself this should be avoided AT ALL COSTS from being cut into.
Groomers experience problems with dogs, at times, as they get real scared when their paws are picked up because they have had a bad experience with a human who may have cut into this part of the nail, not only wil it bleed but it contains a certain amount of nerve endings and when its cut into IT HURTS!
If you take your dog to the groomer and you can see that the nail [ in your opinion] is still long then it could be that the groomer can see that the nail is already close cut to the quick and therefore should be left alone till it grows out even more.
