Vet Diary - Little Scamp

Scamp is a 4 year old Lhasa Apso cross. Anyone who's owned a Shih Tzu or Lhasa before will know they require regular grooming in order to be happy, comfortable dogs.

Poor scamp

Scamp has probably not been groomed an a long time! He arrived covered in matted hair, he couldn't see very well and it was uncomfortable for him to walk.

Shaving the little dog took almost two hours for two people. His face alone taking an hour and a half to remove excess hair from his ears, mouth and neck.

Vet and volunteer eventually found the dog under all that matted hair, they couldn't believe how clean and healthy he looked, no fleas and only one sore, having expected to find a lot worse.

We tried to ensure Scamp kept some hair to keep him warm. The matted hair weighed in at an astonishing 500g. Scamp now feeling lighter with more freedom to move enjoyed a good scratch when he woke up.
