It sure doesn't sound like that was done in this particular case. There are powders to use in order to give a better grip when "plucking" therefore causing less pain. I for one am not a fan of causing dogs pain. Trimming, in my opinion, of a four month old puppy would have been sufficient and a lot less stressful. The vet could have recommended the puppy go to a groomer who would then do the job properly.
Now - back to what the thread is about please..........
