Our "Beauty" a 6-year-old Australian Shepherd was taken to the groomer that has records on her and groomed her less than 2 months ago, practically shaved her down. (A Lab has longer hair.)
We have a meeting with the hospital that this groomer is in connection with this morning. Beauty was not matted nor has she ever been to the degree she needed to be cut. Nonetheless, our concern is the future outcome from this devastating incident by the groomer.
I have read that her coat will probably never be the same shining soft coat as before and that's if it ever grows back if at all. So devasted. She is kept indoors except for her playing time and morning and evening walks.
We live in Southern California but will be moving to Arizona by the end of November. This couldn't have happened at the worst time. I have read to watch out for skin problems, anxiety etc.
Is there anything we can do to maybe help her coat grow back normally or what we need to watch out for?
Anything will be helpful as we feel helpless on how this could've happened by a professional certified groomer.
