Hi Sharon

Sorry to here about your unpleasant experience.

Just keep the wound clean with salty water and apply sudocrem . The vaseline my slow down wound healing.

I would advise that you use a different dog parlour. If the dog was difficult to handle then they should not have attempted the clip.

A lion cut should shave everything below the last rib, so ''halfway across the body'' actually sounds about right.

Most grooming parlours have charts with images of what the various cuts look like, so that you can indicate on there exactly what you want.

As to the dog being nicked - that is pretty well unacceptable, if you ask me. If they haven''t the experience to handle dogs, they have no business being dog groomers.

I wouldn''t take any dog of mine back, if it was injured like that. I once got a dog back with a piece of pantihose still tied around her muzzle - she ''''tried to bite"  which I totally refused to believe... they had forgotten to remove the pantihose - the colour happened to blend in with her coat. I have no idea how long she''d been like that - couldn''t drink or pant. They got a sizeable chunk of my mind, and not one cent''s worth of further business from me, needless to say.
