I hope someone can shed some light on this problem, Today we took our Pomerian to a differnt groomer then we usually do. It was a totally different groomer and grooming place then when we usually go.
Our dog has been home now for 2 hours, but is not acting right at all, he is shaking, and skidish, which he usually is not ever like this. He does not want to eat, and when you call him, he does not come. Is this behavior noraml for a new groomer, or is he upset with us. WE really need answers, for this is not our Pet. Or has something perhaps happened to him as he was being groomed, my daughter is very upset, this is not our normal foxy.

I would think something unpleasant happened to him at that groomer. Maybe extra love and treats will help. Definitely don't go back.

^ agreed. Sounds like he had a very unpleasant grooming session. I certainly would not return. In the meantime, some extra love, cuddling and treats may calm him down and hopefully, he will return to his ole lovable self soon.

Some dogs are just really sensitive to change...it could be something as simple as a difference in drying methods. If possible it might be best if you go back to the grooming facility you used previously or at least try somewhere other than this latest place. Grooming practices vary and it's obviously best to find a groomer who your pet is comfortable with and vice versa.

Another thing i need to add tonight, he is not excited about eating as he usually is, he just looks at his food. I am extremely worried here, what has happened to him.

Really if you are that concerned you should be taking him in to see a vet. People GUESSING what may have or have not happened really won't serve a constructive purpose. A vet should at least be able to tell you if your pet has been seriously injured and if so to what extent which IMHO should be the primary concern at this point.

I agree. Don't go back there.

I once had an Afghan Hound that died at a groomers. They used dryers that hung on the cages.
The groomer said that she heard Sasha whimpering and didn't pay attention to it... and then when she finally went back there, my dog was dead.

The veterinarian said she'd overheated...

I am so not happy at all, tomorrow Foxy is going to be seeing a vet. This dog has be traumatized and we do not know why. Talked to the groomers, they seem to have no answers for us. Foxy is limping a bit, and does not want to pick up his right hind leg, he does not even want to walk on that leg. I am livid at this point, and my daughter, she would like to hurt someone right now, this dog is like her Child. I do not know what else to do. The groomers seem to have no answers for us, this is clearly not our pet. You bring your dog to a groomer and something like this happens, i am so not happy. The dog does not even want to walk.
