Default Shaving the entire thing

My gsd has been having hotspots/ticks like crazy ever since I brought him back from a dog hotel service. The place was not clean and was more of a pound. I was fooled by their brochure. We got rid of the ticks, but he still has hotspot issues. He has two nasty hotspots one on his forehead and the other his hip area. Vet shaved those areas and they are healing up already. They also suggested I shave him from head to toe. I don't know about that, I thought it is not a good idea to shave GSDs especially. He is a long coat as well.
Anyways, should I shave him or not. He is getting better.
Thank you
