Luke said c’est la vie to his golden locks.
In the hopes that the weather will soon get warm and stay that way, Luke recently got the shortest haircut he has ever had.
My goals with this ‘do were:
- To reduce summer shedding
- To lengthen the typical time between grooms
- To limit his opportunities to accumulate debris (especially the thorny kind)
But getting Luke shorn extra short also came with another benefit.
The groomer found a stray staple in one of the scars from his recent lump removals.
Apparently, the vet missed this staple on the follow-up visit. It may be why the swelling around that particular incision site never completely subsided.
All is well now, though. The vet removed the staple, and Luke is now living proof that regular grooming is good for more than aesthetics and comfort. Regular grooming can help uncover health issues before they become a problem.
Big thanks to the groomer at Kennel Creek Pet Resort for being thorough with our Luke!
