OUCH! poor Gracie!!! You can also try zinc oxide to help the burns heal and provide a barrier against the chafing; maybe alternate with the Emu oil? The razor burn isn't deep but it HURTS like nobody's business. Glad you let Dr. Julie know already... :hugs: to grace

Thanks Marisa I will remember that See if I have any.

Nickee - She needed them removed. Her dew claws grew in a spiral toward her leg. Every time they were clipped, they spiraled in more. They were to the point of leaving red marks on her leg, she was starting to lick them.

Not all dogs need them removed. But both or regular vet and the surgeon said they should come off.

Thank you for posting pictures of the razor burns. I was wondering if they had actually cut the skin or not. I'm wondering if Gracie either has sensitive skin or if she is actually allergic to something in the bandages she had there that caused it instead of a razor causing that. Whatever it is, I hope it's not bothering her too much now.

Oh my goodness, looking at those razor burns made me hurt for Grace. Some of those look like gouges...that staff needs a lesson in how to use a clipper correctly. Bless her little heart. As if she didn't already have enough to deal with!

I also wonder if all of this is razor burn? It hardly seems likely, but then again I am not seeing it in person. I hope you find out what is going on Tori!

Oh Tori, that looks awful. Poor little Gracie.
I have never seen this happen before. Not fair for sweet Grace.
I hope it heals soon.

I'd say the worst ones are scrapes... Like the corner of the blade? Not sure how they made them...but they are definitely razor created. The one bad spot on her groin looks like they removed a piece of skin (got it caught?) - it's right in the fold, but it's open... like a sore. That one I can't bandage

she's resting better now that we wrapped them up with the emu oil and aloe. Helps that things aren't constantly rubbing.


Update for today: She is okay. Getting some life back but I think the anesthesia off means more pain. So she is not moving much. Trying to keep up with the Bach's, that seems to really help.

She pooped! Yay! LOL

I'd say she's doing great Now it's just keeping her quiet until the stitches come out. And keeping an eye on those razor injuries.
