Dog won't stop "going at" sore area
My eight year old Mini Schnauser has a small growth on her paw. The vet wants to remove it, but cannot until the irritation around it subsides. The vet wants to keep the dog in a "dog Halo" collar (those funnel shaped devices) until the irritation subsides. The problem is that the dog hates it and acts like she's being punished when wearing it.
Is there some other way to keep her from constantly licking and going after this area? I know that there is a product like Bitter Apple that is used to keep dogs from "mouthing" objects. Does anyone have a suggestion?
