I have a blue persian that was severely injured by a groomer error. She wrapped her paws with "vet wrap" to avoid getting clawed. She forgot to take it off of one paw - and it cut off the circulation of one of her rear paws. The paw became so swollen - the skin died and she almost lost her foot. The vet has been cutting off dead skin - and trying to save toes at this point. It was extremely upsetting - to say the least - and painful for the kitty. She has been with the vet for 5 days with constant debreeding and cuttng off of dead skin. She will probably have no fur on the foot again, but - that's not the big part. I am just so beside myself that she is going through this!! The groomer has admitted that "oh - this exact thing happened with another one of our franchise units." Perhaps they should stop using the vet wrap???? She is going to need ongoing care - as the skin is gone - and hasn't even begun to scab yet. What can I do?

I'm sorry I don't have any real advice, but I sure hope sweet kitty is better soon. That just sounds terrible. If you've had a good relationship with the groomer in the past, maybe you can voice your concerns about the use of vet wrap and ask them to seriously consider an alternative. Hopefully they'll be receptive.

Start by requesting they pay all the vet bills for this.

If they refuse seek legal assistance.

I agree with JosephV55.

Sounds like some serious vet bills. Groomer should take all or at least a good portion of them.

I agree that the groomer should be responsible for ALL the vet bills and if they don't step up I would head to small claims court. How awful for your kitty.

I agree that they should pay all vet bills, and if they don't then take legal action.

I'd be curious to know who the groomer is so I can avoid taking my pets there.

First Im sorry for your pet and hope she has a full recovery!
Next I'd take that vet wrap and ring it around that groomers neck!
Then I'll ask for payment in full or have fun in court owning the groomers business! (of course out of spite)

Good luck my friend let justice prevail! And don't back down for what is right!

Hoping your furbaby is doing better....I can not even imagine the pain you must feel for her. Our furbabies are so very special to all of us that have 4 legged family members.
