Silky had a hard life. When she arrived at the San Jose animal shelter, she had severely matted hair. No, it’s worse that you think. She also had foxtails and was covered in bits of debris. The matting was so bad that she couldn’t see and could barely manage to walk. The vet knew that they needed to do something so that Silky could move and could get adopted.
Those knots could cause skin infections, on top of already being incredibly painful. They put Silk under anesthesia and spayed her, then they decided to do a full grooming job while she was still under so that they wouldn’t hurt her during the process. You can watch this transformation in the video below, and trust me, it needs to be seen in order to be believed.
