Your pet may want to rub or scratch after being freed of extremely matted hair but you must prevent this at all costs. If your pet has just had his nails trimmed they can especially injure themselves.
After matted hair has been professionally removed their skin will be sore, tender and easily damaged. You can apply first aid cream or gel to your pet if needed. If the skin is tender the cream will provide a welcome soothing relief from itching and will encourage the skin to heal.
Believe it or not your pet has feelings, you should never allow anyone to make fun of how your pet looks. Going from being encased in hair to almost no hair can be traumatic for your dog or cat. You should reassure your pet with lots of praise and love.Columbus Pet Grooming
