Eric Syracuse, New York 3/14/2014 8:24:34 AM I found the perfect solution to help get your dog's tail tip to heal: Items needed: Vet wrap Sports Tape Finger Splint with (metal covering) Dog cone: (recommend using inflatable one) Tools: Scissors Medicine if needed: Neosporine **May need assistance, to help keep your dog from moving.** All the items listed can be purchased at your local pharmacy all together for about $20 - $25 Except the dog cone I recommend the inflatable one it's easier on your dog's neck, this can be purchased at a Pet shop, I know Petsmart has them. Depending on size about $20 - $40. Process: First apply Neosporine to affected area. Next wrap your dog's tail tip in the vet wrap. Cut to size. I recommend at least 1" to 1.5" Next place the finger splint over vet wrap/over tail tip. Squeeze the finger splint together to make it more snug. Do not squeeze too much, may hurt dog in process. Next wrap the sports tape around finger splint and up onto tail at least 3" - 4" on the tail above where the finger splint ends. This is key otherwise when your dog wages their tail it will fly off. Then place dog cone around your dog's neck this will help your dog from getting at their tail. However your dog may still be able to get at tail. The metal on the finger splint will help to discourage your dog from biting If your dog is persistent i then recommend buying a spray that will discourage your dog from biting the area. Change the bandage every day or at most every other day to prevent infection.
