Medical issues that can arise?
Sometimes, shaving down your pet’s coat will reveal a problem previously hidden by the mats, such as a hotspot, eczema, parasites or open sores. Now that these problem spots are exposed, it gives your pet access to chew or lick. It is important to prevent your pet from excessive scratching or licking, rubbing themselves on the carpet or furniture, or other types of self-mutilation. Please seek medical advice from your veterinarian if you are concerned.
