|Husky of the Month|
Congrats Nikita, Archer, and Cheyanne,
our November HOTM Winners!
Thanks to all for this month's entries!
|1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.|
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

my dog is on his 3rd day of post care leg surgery and we are currently using the cone. we saw that the cone made him uncomfortable so i'm thinking of switching into this product that i saw on the other forum https://www.licksleeve.com/products/lick-sleeve has anyone tried to use this before? appreciate all the help! Thanks

I think I'd first see if he needs the cone. A short experiment leaving it off to see if he licks the wound. My Alaskan didn't so the cone went back to the vet posthaste.
It'd help if you'd give us an idea of what the surgery was and how long you're looking at restraining him from licking. If you're looking at possibly 2 weeks I'd say stick with the irritating cone, if you're looking at longer then the licksleeve is possibly something to consider. Donut collars are another alternative I've heard of being used. It's not as irritating as the cone, allowing more natural movement but still keeping him from licking the wound.
This is not a recommendation, just a pointer to what I'm talking about.
Whatever way you go, would you mind letting us know and how it worked for you??

I like the donut collars if you get one large enough. I have one dog that is pretty bendy and it takes a pretty poofy collar to prevent the reach but they are so much quieter and they don't have the trouble eating and drinking with them on. Much cheaper also and can be used for any other future ailments rather than only being usable for one body part that is injured.
