Matted Dog Season

It is that time of year again.  After a long and tumultuous bout of winter melts and refreezes coupled with the unpredictability of a very stormy spring I find myself dealing with quite a number of very seriously matted dogs.  This little Bichon/ShihTzu X was the most difficult to date.  I was able to use a #10 blade and a #15 blade on the body, ears, and tail but the legs required a #40 blade to get under the crusted matting.  It was matted “every where”…even had lumpy matts coming out of the inner ear that gave the appearance of extra ears.  I took this photo upon starting the shave off along its back to show the amount of matting as best as I could.IMGP9997 (1280x850)
