They had to sedate him. He also had a chest x-ray and his dental work done (clean & polish and extraction of a cracked premolar). It's not good to sedate them often, so I figured we'd get a year's worth of stuff done at one time. And he won't be spending all day in the bathtub now, trying to stay cool against the porcelain.
Heidi, I didn't know the clippers got caught in long, soft fur. I suppose that would make sense, wouldn't it? Anyhow, I don't care what he looks like, he's my bud.
