I tried everything to get it out and eventually decided to cut some of her fur to help...
And, I nicked her 😢😖☹🥺😫😭
I saw a tiny piece of her skin in the mat of fur and although she didn't make a peep, We immediately went to see our good friends at @fairfieldanimal
Thank goodness we did.🙏🙌🐾
They calmed Me down and provided the reassurance I needed that this happens to other people too. I was mortified and clearly in more distress than Wilma. 😳😳
But more importantly they discovered that She also had an infection in her ears. The doodle in her means she has very hairy inner ears and I'm told this is a common issue for them. The mat was most likely from excessive scratching. A behaviour I didn't pick up on. 😵😮😓
Lessons learned... never will I ever pick up the scissors again and we now have proper ear wash to keep My girl's ears clean and well cared for. 🐾🤎
