MATTING Pets with matted coats need extra attention during their grooming session. Mats left in a pets coat only grow tighter, and can strangle the pet's skin, or eventually tear it open. Pampered Pet does not wish to cause serious or undue stress to your pet, and will not continually de-mat your pet for you. If your dogs ears are severely matted and need to be shaved this can irritate dogs ears create hematomas from shaking their head. * After effects of mat removal procedures can include itchiness, skin redness, self-inflicted irritations or abrasions and failure of the hair to re grow. There is an extra charge for all dematting services.
