About the 2007 Contest

2007 Entries

By popular demand the Miracle Pet Makeover Contest 2005 was held again for 2007. Here we are talking "extreme makeovers" for pets in serious need of care. Our goal was to catalog stories of groomers delivering "miracles" and getting them the recognition they deserve.

In the case of miracle pet makeovers few pets have enough coat remaining to show the styling ability of groomers. The joy and relief of a miracle makeover is obvious, just look at the response of pets. Groomers deliver a lot of heart. That's what this contest continues was about.

It's OK if you have to remove the coat. Don't stress the pet simply to retain a coat for this contest. If it needs to be clipped off, do what is appropriate for the comfort, safety and health of the pet. You will NOT be poorly judged poorly for removing a coat. Further, this contest is for experienced groomers who have the experience know-how to properly and safely groom extreme condition pets (see Notice below).

NOTICE: We stressed that groomers should never risk the health and comfort of pets by trying to save the coats requiring removal, or any other procedure could involve risk. Some groomers groomed their pets over 2 or 3 sessions for the comfort of the pets. These pets sometimes required veterinary medical clearance before they were groomed, and even after. Many neglected pets can develop reactions, especially skin reactions, after major coat removals and/or dematting. If the pet needs medical attention, always find a way to arrange for vet care. We repeat, pets in extreme condition benefit from a medical check and clearance before grooming, especially if you notice foul odors, signs of discharge from sores or openings, swelling, cuts, bruises or behavior that indicates illness. In our business we always got veterinarian clearance in writing before grooming extreme condition pets, and encouraged the owner to maintain the vet care after the appointment. Some veterinarians prescribe medications that can alleviate or mitigate skin reactions after major coat removals and/or dematting. If you are unsure how to groom extreme condition pets, please don't. Students should never groom pets in these conditions without supervision of an experienced groomer.
