Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like tohelp you today. I do apologize that your question was not answered before.Different experts come online at various times; I just came online, read aboutyour situation, and wanted to help.

Again I do apologize that my colleagues could not aidyou sooner. If you would still like assistance, can you tell me:

Was she given anything (ie sedation) by the groomer?

Any areas of irritation, razor burn or redness on Oreo's skin?

Is she circling like she is trying to check her backside (a common place fo irritation post-grooming) or circling generally to the same side?

Any head tilting or tremors?
