Trimmers and Trimming Devices
Some dogs may need their hair trimmed from time to time.
Common body areas that may require regular hair trimming for some dogs include:
Around the eye area, if the hair is starting to obscure vision or cause irritation.
Hair growing around the anus which is trapping faeces.
Hair around the chin and lower jaw trapping food or to help prevent lip and chin fold infections.
Areas where debris (grass seeds, burrs) are trapped in hair.
Areas where there are hair mats and tangles.
Ask your local veterinary clinic for advice.
Blunt-nosed safety scissors should be used.
Never point scissors towards the dog, extra care must be taken if trimming any hair around the eyes to avoid contacting the eyes.
