|Tully did this once chasing the squirrels in the yard. Much more traumatic for us, though. She really could have cared less. But she has also had a good number of leg/foot licking issues so we have tried many a licking remedy.
- When she cracked her nail, the vet put a gauze pad right around it then wrapped her foot and leg in that cotton batting, like they would use under a cast, and wrapped that in the bandage/ace bandage tape. That provided padding from the pain, but not the licking and trying to get it off.
- What has worked for us almost 99% of the time with licking is using a deterrant spray, like Bitter Apple. Get a really good amount of spray not only on the affected area, but around it so he doesn't even get close. And a double effect is the alcohol in the spray helps keep the area clean and dry.
- If all else fails, the E-Collar is the quickest and usually most effective solution. King will put on the pouty face for sure and you'll probably wind up with curved indentations on the back of your legs, but it will work.
Good luck!!! And if you find anything that works better, please let me know!
Natasha and Tully
