I accidently cut my goldendoodle with the scissors on her

Customer Question

I accidently cut my goldendoodle with the scissors on her chest while cutting out a matted area. it's about 1 inch wide. it's not bleeding bad, but it did cut through the top layer of her skin and I can see the next layer through the cut/hole.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Is the dog bleeding a lot?
Customer: no hardly at all
JA: Phew. What is the dog's name?
Customer: Beau
JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about the dog?

JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Veterinarian about your situation and then connect you two.
