Dog Groomer Injury

First, we don’t want to imply groomers intend to hurt your pet. There are many great dog groomers out there. Most love animals and enjoy grooming. Most times, a trip to the groomer is uneventful. Everything goes as planned. However, sometimes, a pet may suffer injuries at the groomer.
We have found many stories of dogs injured at the groomer. It happens, and a good groomer will work to make the situation better. Sometimes it is just an honest accident. Unfortunately, there are horror stories too.

Dog Groomer Injury Horror Stories

One story involves a groomer who cut off a dog’s ear. The groomer never told the dog owner. It seems the groomer tried to glue the ear back on. When the owner realized and contacted police, the business was gone. The company and employee disappeared. The phone was disconnected. They had vanished in a matter of days.
Another story shares details of a mobile groomer abusing a dog. Witnesses saw the groomer hit the dog. They also reported hearing the dog yelp in pain. Police photos show a white rope allegedly used to choke the dog. Yet the grooming service denies any trouble. Even denying the bloody nose of the dog. The company claims the groomer is a trusted employee. The groomer continued to work during the investigation.

Dog Dies at the Groomer

What do you do when the unthinkable happens? You drop your dog off at a trusted groomer. Then, a call comes that your dog has died. There must be some mistake. A dog owner in New Jersey recently experienced this same scenario. She dropped off her dog at a PetSmart. An hour later, she received a call. Her dog was on the way to the emergency vet. Upon arrival at the vet, her dog was already dead and no one from PetSmart was there. What happened? Digging for answers, she found he was not alone. Other owners had experienced problems with the same PetSmart location. Within a week, 2 dogs had died and another dog had a back injury. Sadly, PetSmart has not given answers about what happened with Scruffles.
