My Mom decided to go back to shorter cut and we are ever so sorry! Help!
My mom has a beautiful Coton. He is just over 5 years old. He had such silky, long, flowing hair. It was just a sight to see and feel!!! However, Mom decided in May to try a shorter cut, in hopes to decide if she wanted to return him to The Puppy Cut.
He looked cute for a bit, but as his coat began to regrow, the problems began. His hair mats like crazy now, making grooming which was relaxing and soothing to both him and my Mom, now a chore. He is in such pain from the brushing and the continual mats. It seems no matter what my Mom tries (ICE and other sprays, which worked wonderfully before the cut) now seem so ineffective.
I guess I am wondering, is it possible that the groomer used clippers on his coat, to trim it, instead of scissors and that is causing the insanity???
Has anyone had experience with clipping an adult coat and running into these problems? If so, does the coat eventually settle out again? Or do we need to take him in again and have him cut shorter, ensuring with scissors, to get rid of the destroyed ends which may be causing the extra mats?
My Mom feels so guilty and sorry for taking him in to be clipped shorter. I wonder if anyone could help me help her get through this with her four-legged furbaby?
Thank you so much for your time and help.
