Jay usually gets mats in his fur during the colder seasons. Last year it wasn\'t that bad and I was able to trim all the mats out. This year he has them all over. (under his chin, back, sides) I have tried brushing him out and it didn\'t work and I have also trimmed a severley matted part of his side so now he looks funny. Do you think the best thing to do would just be to shave him and let his hair grow back? We would leave his legs, tail, and face with fur but the rest of him shaved. Please let me know if this would be a good idea. I don\'t know what to do with him right now and I imagine the mats are tugging at his skin which is probably painful.
