I feel so bad. I was trimming Chilli’s fluffy butt and pantaloons with pet clippers, as I often do to keep things sanitary, since she’s super good about it. I had the lowest guard on the clippers to do right around the butt, but somehow I think it scratched her little butthole. There is a tiny little red scratch on it now. She grumbled when it happened but is acting fine now, but I’m worried it will hurt or get worse or infected or something when she has a bowel movement. Should I be worried about it? I feel awful. I didn’t know the clippers could hurt her skin at all with the plastic guard but I guess I was wrong. :(

Make sure it's kept clean and check for swelling, redness or weeping. If there is any sign of infection, take her to the vet.
