Start by having the dog raised off the floor, so you are not bending over and have all supplies to hand.

Double your gauze over, and cover the wound with at least 4 inches extra in length.

Starting on the underside of the tail, bring the tape over the end of the tail, covering the gauze and ending on the topside .

The finished bandage.

Remember to apply any medications before you start the wrap, and to apply as much padding as needed.

Spray the finished bandage with Bitter Apple or other lick inhibator, to keep the dog from trying to bite the bandage off, you do not want them chewing. This bandage will not tear or pull off..

Our last Dog, an Irish Water Spaniel, accidentally had an accident with its tail, it was chopped off when it got shut in a door, had it bandaged for months. once after the vet renewed the dressing he stood up shook himself wagged his tail twice and the bandage came flying off. the poor vet was heart broken.

:lol: :lol: :D :hmm: :P

it was very fenny
