MATTED DOG RELEASE FORM
Dogs with severely matted coats require extra attention. The Urban Hound will not cause serious or undue stress to pets by de-matting.
Mats can be difficult to remove, and may require the pet to be shaved. Removing a heavily matted coat can cause nicks, cuts, or abrasions. Heavy matting can also trap moisture and urine near the pet’s skin, allowing mold, fungus, or bacteria to grow, and/or revealing skin irritations that existed prior to the grooming process. After-effects of mat removal can include itchiness, redness, self-inflicted irritations or abrasions, and failure of hair to regrow. In some cases, pets may also exhibit brief behavioral changes.
