With only two episodes left, the four remaining groomers paired up to make housecalls this week – clean the van, drive the van, and groom the pets all under tight time constraints! Now with the obvious problems aside – two NYCers driving in LA without GPS – the fatal elimination error regarded the quick of the dog. If you cut your pup's nails yourself, you've probably heard this term before.
It's recommended that you trim your pets' nails once or twice a month by starting at the tip and snipping a bit at a time. Be extra careful as it's harder to see the blood vessels, or quick, in dark nails. If you do hit the quick, apply steady pressure with a coagulating powder (like Kwik Stop) to halt the bleeding. What error did the losing contestant make with regards to the quick? Find out when you read more.
Kathleen was sent home this week for telling Artist she had this styptic powder without checking first. When the dog's quick was cut and started bleeding, the duo did not have the proper tools to make it stop . . . and they never told the dog's owner! Kathleen wasn't my fave, and now only three groomers remain!
