My Yorkie was cut.... HELP!
So I now realize why there are professional groomers. Everyday pet owners do not always make the best groomers. So I was trimming my pup tonight and he happened to move and he got cut with the scissors. I am freaking out right now because I do not know if he will need stitches or not. It's not a large cut but it did bleed a bit. and because it is an inscision...... the skin is split a bit. I do not want it to get infected. I hope someone has encountered this before and can help me.

Yuki had huge cuts on his side when he was fixed(made me mad)not sure if it was the tape removal or the tattoo they gave him???????????????...BUT they healed fine. I just put antibotic ointment on it and put him in a onesie. If it starts to look infected then of course go to a VET.
Hard not to feel bad huh? One time I knicked Yuki's tummy with some trimmers and I was so sad I threw the trimmers in the trash..I just bought them too...

Sorry to hear about your babies cut. It should heal ok but maybe put a little antibiotic cream on it. I groom all 3 of mine and I always worry I will accidently cut one but I still prefer to do it myself than give them over to a groomer. So don't get mad at yorself it happens even to professional breeders.

Don't let cutting your baby keep you from grooming. Use a clipper on the ears. Never a scissor. The only time I use scissors is to cut around the paw at the nail. First rinse the cut out with peroxide and then put neosporin on it.
I'm sure you will be forgiven.
