I have only taken Finn to the groomer twice in his life and I love everyone at the groomer's and the atmosphere is great. It's privately run, not some big company like Petsmart. A week or so after the first visit (about 7 months ago) I noticed a couple little scabs on Finn while petting him but unable to be sure what caused them, I let it go.
His second trip to the groomer was this last weekend and a couple days ago we again found some small scabs on his body. Now I feel confident that he is getting the scabs from the groomer. I want to know how he got them and how common this is. I don't know if we should stop going to the groomer or just tell them next time about the scabs to ensure that they don't do whatever might be causing it.
The possible causes I came up with were the brushes (the first time was a shedding blade and the second was a Furminator) or the shampoo or conditioner. I know they used a deshedding conditioner the first time to loosen up the hair so I assume they use it the second time as well. Any ideas?
