So the days we left our cherished rescue mutt home for fairly long stretches so we could visit with family for the holiday did not go well.
Ellie B aka Dogamous Pyle decided to chew on her hind quarters.
What an itch she had!
The family put our heads together for a home solution. I took my airline fusion out from my closet. A quick sewing job by my sister Dory made the neck hole perfect for the dog. It held. For a little while.
The pet store opened the morning of Black Friday. I decided upon the soft cone.
This was sturdier as we awaited her 3 p.m. appointment with the vet.
Hot spots they are. We left with two meds, directions to swab the chewed-bare spots with rubbing alcohol, and agreement to keep the cone of non-shame on until she’s healing.
No biting, dear dog!
