I am thankfor for this article. I had a dog today in my shop that was severely matted (ALL OVER)right down to the skin. The ears and facial hair also...this was a Bearded Collie. I worked slowly however approximately 20 minutes after the groom was finished I noticed bleeding from the tips of the dogs ears. It was the first time this happened to me and it is not a pleasant experience. I'm not so sure I'll do another severely matted dog, while I know I did nothing wrong, its very hard to see it happen.
