My poor Barney who is 4yrs old now, had to have a small op on Friday. The vet took his dressing off on Sunday but as he has two stitches in until next Monday, she advised us to use baby socks on him and tape them on above the knee. Trouble is the tape seems to stretch and the socks keep slipping down. Anyone got any suggestions to keep them up.
He kept licking his paw, so I took him to get checked out, there was something in the top of his paw. The vet said they needed to do an exploratary on it. Anyhow it was a piece off a burr that had dug in, I thought I had got rid of it all. We like going for walks in forests and the countryside, trouble is he has a long coat and constantly gets tangeled with burrs, brambles and other stuff.
I am thinking of taking him to the groomers, to get his legs,paws, bum and under tum done fairly short, not shaved. I really don't want to but I think Barney would be more comfortable, rather than getting tangled all the time.
Has anyone had their dog trimmed?
