Post-Grooming Possible Conditions

We at Ironmaya Pet Grooming want to provide the best care for your beloved pet. As part of our commitment to transparency and full disclosure, we want to inform you of possible medical conditions that may occur after grooming your pet. Please note that these conditions may require veterinary attention.

We want to assure you that we take all necessary precautions to prevent these conditions from occurring. However, grooming can be a complex process that may result in some of the conditions mentioned above. We recommend that you monitor your pet for any of these conditions and seek veterinary attention if needed.

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us.

  1. Aural Hematoma: This is a condition where blood accumulates between the skin and cartilage of the ear flap, causing swelling and discomfort.

  2. Contact Dermatitis: Some pets may develop skin redness, inflammation, and irritation after exposure to grooming products or contact with the grooming table or tools.

  3. Feline Post-Grooming Alopecia: Some cats may experience hair loss due to stress, skin conditions, and anxiety.

  4. Atopic Dermatitis: Pets with sensitive skin may experience allergies and skin inflammation after grooming.
