August 27, 2010, Newsletter Issue #353: Avoid Clipper Irritation

Tip of the Week

Clipper irritation, sometimes referred by its less desirable name, clipper burn, occurs when your dog's hair is shaved close and a skin irritation occurs. Clipper irritation typically happens with dogs that have sensitive skin. Don't let your pooch scratch and create an infected area.

You can try applying baby powder, benadryl cream, or emu oil to help relieve the itching. It is also helpful to mention to the groomer on your next visit that your dog is sensitive so they can compensate by leaving the hair a bit longer.
