My dog had fur extremely amtted after back from the kennls, and he had to have his fur completely clipped off. Since then he has been acting extremely anti-social/disobedient. He doesn't play with the toys he love and he doesn't come when called. He doesn't pee in our garden like he use to, but sits there scratching his skin raw and licking and rubbing himself. He is very quiet and not himself. He chases his tail/butt ever time he walks and the earliest vet appointment is days away! Help! Is this natural? What shall we do?

He is clearly not feeling well. Give him a break and don't expect him to be "obedient".

Call another vet to get a sooner appointment.

No, this is not normal!

Have you called the groomer to ask what happened?
Ask the groomer about the itching and scratching. Maybe this is a reaction to the shampoo used. He might need another bath with something soothing. (I would do this bath yourself!)

ditto tess, this isn't normal, and he isn't feeling well so lowering your expectations of his behavior is a good idea ;) i would also call another vet for an earlier appointment. poor guy sounds totally miserable!

If they clipped his hair short maybe they gave him razor burn or his skin is irritated and or feels funny because he went from long to short.
