Advice needed please

Post by Jolono » 04 Feb 2016, 09:40

Hi everyone sorry for not posting for a while but I am still a daily reader. Chester has got a new sister - not a doodle but a funny little dog that we rescued. She has had to have her dew claws removed at the back and wont leave the site of the operation alone. I have tried baby socks with tape round but she is still getting them off. can anyone suggest something that I could put on the socks that smells bad to dogs so she will leave it alone. Someone suggested Vick to me but I do not know if that would harm her
Any suggestions welcome please

We used to use vicks on the furniture legs to stop Stout chewing them, he didn't try to chew them after. You can also get the bitter spray stuff (we never found it very effective though)
Cheers,

Chris, Michelle & Stout

As she doesn't like socks perhaps you could just use vet wrap bandage just to cover the area ?..... it would leave her pads free so she might not object as much.

Apparently tea tree cream tastes nasty but is very soothing. Sudacrem is good for soreness( as I said to Olly, re post op stitches itching) Anny

I had never heard of vet wrap bandage and it seems it could be useful to have at home anyway!
Thank you all for your help - loved the photo We5Kings!!!!
