Lameness and pain due to mats under the legs.

One of the many factors affecting movement and comfort is the condition of the hair coat. Mats that collect under the front and back legs cause pulling of hair follicles that are quite painful. 

Mats pull on delicate hair follicles attached to nerves. Mats restricts free movement of the limbs.   A daily check and grooming under the legs can reduce the formation of painful mats allowing full range of motion at the hips and shoulders.

Read What Our Clients Say

  • "We are so thankful for the care and patience provided by Care Animal Clinic. We had a very shy and fearful foster pup who could not be handled easily. The staff took at least 30 minutes out of her day to sit on the floor and slowly acclimate our pup to her touches. Most other offices I've been to have not been willing to go through the effort to make dogs comfortable like that. I would highly recommend Care Animal Clinic to anyone whether your pup is friendly or if they need a little special help like ours did."
