|If he was shaved due to mats, it's probably just because he was shaved. It feels really weird to have all this thick, tangled hair and then suddenly not have any. He may have gotten slight clipper burn if they had to shave a lot off, you could call your groomer and ask if they noticed anything or if they knew why he could be itching- they're the ones who groomed him, after all.
Also, when a doggy is shaved, small bits of hair that were shaved off will sometimes linger and will itch on the doggy's skin. You could try benadryl if you wanted, but I would give him a quick bath first, to try and get out any stray hairs, or maybe the shampoo wasn't all the way rinsed out when he got groomed, etc. Just use some really gentle shampoo and rinse him out really really good. Hopefully that will help. If he keeps itching for a very long time, ask your vet.
