    Hi to everyone,i need a bit of advice.

    My mom had her dog clipped in the week,by a dog groomer that comes to the house in a large van and grooms your pet outside of your house.She looked and smelt great like she always does,because mom has used this groomer before and i have.But when mom got up today she noticed that the dog in question was just lying there and would not get up to say hello or even get up for her food.When my dad got home she didnt even get off my moms lap to say hello to him.So they both new that somethink was wrong,the dog fell asleep on the chair and dad went over to her and he lifted up one of her legs,he noticed that the skin under her leg (arm pit ) had stuck together and looked sore,it became unstuck and the dog started to move about more and seem to a bit better.Mom and dad were not happy still so they took the dog to the vets.It turns out that the groomer had cut the dogs skin and now it is infected and weaping.The vet gave them cream to put on twice a day and antibiotics,it cost over £40.00

    Now the question is do you phone up the groomer and tell them what they have done or do you leave it and still let them groom your dog.I said you should tell the groomer,but mom is not sure.

    I would really like all your thought on this please....

    Why had the skin stuck together, what had been done had the dog been shaved in that area razor burns are very sore, i would tell the groomer as i would have thought if the dog had, had a sore spot before and the shaving had made it worse then the groomer would have told your mum to cover herself, sounds like something she has done.

    I am going to print off all this great advice and information and take it over to moms in the morning.I take it the groomer will be insured so if mom tells her will the groomer pay the vet bill.
