Pets with severely matted coats require extra attention. Matts in a pets coat grow tight and can ultimately damage the pet’s skin, which provides a breeding ground for parasite infestations and potential infection. Pawsh Dogs Grooming Studio will not cause serious or undue stress to your pet by dematting. Matts can be very difficult to remove, and may require the pet to be shaved. Pawsh Dogs Grooming Studio groomers will all try where possible to remove the matts for a maximum of 20 minutes, if after this the matting has not been removed we will remove the matt by cutting or shaving it out.
Removing a heavily matted coat can cause nicks, cuts, or abrasions. Heavy matting can also trap moisture near your pet’s skin allowing bacteria to grow and skin irritations that existed prior to the grooming process. After effects of matt removal procedures can include itchiness, skin redness, self-inflicted irritations or abrasions and potentially failure of the hair to regrow.
Prevention is the best defence against matting and your groomer will advise a grooming schedule suited to your pet prior to you leaving the salon.
There could be additional charges for this process; it is time consuming and causes extra wear and tear on grooming equipment. Additional charges depend on severity of the matting and size of your pet.
