Poodle skin irritation after professionally groomed, How to calm irritation?
An_252513 posted:
My friend' poodle was professionally groomed and the skin on her belly was very irritated after grooming. The groomer said the hair on her belly was very tangled and needed to be shaved. Now the skin on her belly is very red and irritated and she hides under the bed and growls when my friend tries to get her out from under the bed. Once she comes out, what home remedy do you suggest to calm the irritation?
