Shes has a severe reaction the vet said.is making me very nervous about getting her clippered for summer now though :(
But remember when they spay they shave them to the skin, when you get her clipped by a groomer they should use a comb attachment on the clipper blade to leave around half to 1 inch of fur so the blade won't touch the skin and shouldn't cause a clipper rash.

Update coco is still not better i was awake with her all nite . She still cant sit or lie down .we have the vets again at 4 today and i really hope they take her in.i dont think she has clipper burn i think something is pulling/hurting her so she was scratching to alleviate that and thats what caused the redness :( she is trying to sleep upright . This is horrible :(

We are all feeling for you and hoping you get it sorted out. We love our dogs so much it is really hard to see them sick or in pain. I think you're right to see another vet and hope that Coco will be on the mend soon :hug:

I am pleased to report that my baby has turned the corner.i think she reacted badly to the injection yesterday .i gave her a bit more piriton than i did the first time and she finally managed to sleep.shes been playing with her toys in the garden so fingers crossed . I feel so bad for putting her through that but i think in the long term its better for her

Really pleased she's improving. We always feel guilty when we put our babies through surgery, especially when there is a problem like you've had, but she will be through this in a few days and then it will all be for the best x
