Hair balls

Post by sammiiie » Sun May 04, 2008 12:54 pm

My dog have two small hair ball knots on each side on the lower part of her ears. How do I remove it properly and without hurting my dog? And does it hurt the dog to have those?

That ball of knotted fur is called a mat. Here are some older threads discussing mats (very helpful info):
Mats Behind the Ears
Oi Vey...The Mats!
Lots of mats and tangles on fur... help!

Hope this helps. Btw, there's a huge amount of information posted in earlier threads on this site, just use the search function and you'll find tons of information on many topics. Enjoy! :D
