    I think your long story is a bit too short. [​IMG] Where is that mass located on the body in the first couple of pics, and is it on you?? Was it cause by dog hair, and what is the mass exactly?? Sorry but I'm just not sure what I'm looking at. [​IMG]

    I would think if it was from grooming dogs and that's what you do for a living you might have a workers comp claim, not sure but that would make sense. I just don't understand how you would get dog hair lodged in your skin to cause a problem like that in the first place...??
    And yes I have 10 chickens, and 5 ducks. [​IMG]

    The groomer that works on my dogs wears gloves, they are required. Are you required to wear gloves and were you wearing them? If you are injured on the job or suffer and injury of a long term such as Carpal Tunnel that takes a while to manifest, then it would be a Workman's Comp. claim. A migrating hair should qualify unless you are asked to prove there is no way it could have happened away from your workplace, or it can be proven you were not wearing required and supplied protective gear.

    Quote:Um, ouch! Hey, look on the bright side. Better dog hair in your hand than in your lungs. Dog groomers can get a condition similar to coal miners' Black Lung from inhaling small particles of dog hair that get in the air from the clippers.

    i would not wear gloves when grooming a dog, It is hard enough, with matted dogs to keep from cutting their skin. It not like the majority of them sit there and let me do this.
