Has anyone ever had to have this done to their Cav? Prince has a recurrent ear problem and we were at the vet again last night and he suggested we get the fur on his ears clipped right back to reduce the weight and it would help keep them clean (we clean his ears daily). He also suggested we get his coat clipped, again for health and hygiene reasons. He has ear mites which Belle has a bit of now (didnt realise they were so contagious). They have both been treated for it now.
I am so stressed out about the whole idea of him having his coat clipped by the vet (or vet nurse will probably do it). Is this normal or would you consider it extreme?
