Hi all, my dog got his first professional grooming two days ago and he's been acting weird since. He is quite irritated in his hindquarters...He keeps sitting and lifting his hind legs and licking at either side. The groomer clipped his belly and around his testicles...so I'm not sure if he itches or if it's something else. His skin doesn't look red or abnormal other than something that is a bit of a side note...his testicles are very dark compared to the rest of his skin. I've never seen them before because of his very thick hair. Is this normal? I won't be able to talk to my vet until tomorrow and I'm worried about him. I really hate seeing him like this. He is eating, playing, and sleeping like normal. Is it common that dogs have this reaction to their first grooming? Should I be worried? Should I find an emergency vet? Thanks for any advice you have to offer!
