x3, you've been with this groomer for 2 years, it's an accident.

The groomer sounds like she was really caring and offered more then one could ask for such a small accident. granted you love your dog to death but dogs are dogs, they are tuff and will live...atleast with a tiny problem like this.


if i were you i would go in to see the groomer after your dog heals and thanks her with maybe a small gift card or something for being so caring to your pet. i would also bring your dog in with you saying little sparky wanted to say hi and thanks also or something cute like that.

Think of what may be going thru her head now if she really loves animals and does the job out of passion/love, hell the groomer may be taking it harder then you and your dog...

just another idea. if someone cared for my last dog like that i would take the time out to visit them and let them know everything is ok..with a small thanks.

Wow... For a second there I thought that you were writing that "if it was me, i'd just eat the dog"

Now that's harsh.

I have had the same thing happen to my dog (who is much bigger than yours about 60lbs). He had a small lump on his back leg and when the groomer was cutting his fur she managed to take the top of the lump off. It has caused a few problems and required a visit to the vet.

I didn`t look for any compensation from the groomer, it was a accident and i treated it as so.

Thanks for all the help!

I've went to visit my groomer and I told her not to worry about stitching costs - it wasn't very much anyways and it was completely accidental. She apologized, and I apologized for my own brash actions and things worked out okay.

Only thing is, my dog is now terrified of the grooming place - so I'm unsure about taking my dog back to that place to groom.

Everyone make mistakes. Make her pay the vet bill, and ask for a discount next time you go, or go somewhere else. There's ZERO need to get lawyers involved.

Another groomer may not have the patience to help the dog overcome the fear of the clippers. I've seen dogs get the rough treatment because they were fearful and had to be subdued to do the job. If the groomer is good with pets, they will gain their confidence again.

Don't worry what we think, you know the right way to handle it. Now if you are looking for another pet, we breed Shih Tzus .

Treats. Treat on the way there, there, and when they're done. They'll then associate it with a positive experience. Most of the times owners say their dogs are terrified about something it's because of the way the owner is acting themselves, and the dog reads that. Just act like it's not big deal, and a big game, things will be fine.

lol My dog is havanese - basically non-shedding maltese look-alike. Shih Tzus are awesome as well - but I find them to be too aloof sometimes Absolutely adorable though

Problem is, my dog never eats anything outside of our house, no matter how tasty it is so treats are not going to work. I guess she'll forget it after a month or two later.

Man, if I took my dogs to the vet every time they cut themselves, I wouldn't be able to afford headphones. Of course, if I took my dogs to the groomers, I also wouldn't be able to afford headphones, and they'd still roll in every dead thing and pile of dung they came across just to spite me.
Glad to hear you're not suing. Good choice!
