Groomer Has It Recap: "House Calls"

Groomer Has It Recap: "House Calls"

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


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!

I always cut my dog's nails myself and I cut the quick ONE time when the guard slipped off the clippers. She didn't freak too much and I managed to stop the bleeding quickly. If you don't have any styptic powder, you can also use super glue (it WORKS). I kind of liked Kathleen, so I'm kinda bummed that she's gone.

No. Notice she said that they didn't tell the owner. That means that they gave the dog back (alive), and just didn't mention the mishap. It was a fatal error for Kathleen because it got her kicked off the show, that's all.

So I didn't watch the show, but does the "fatal elimination error" cause the dog to die?? I know that if you cut the quick it bleeds A LOT and even days later if it doesn't heel properly and then is used too much, but did they really kill a dog???
