You probably already know this, so please disregard, but some people don't.
Be careful with vet wrap since it does tighten - just don't want to her not getting enough blood to her paw.
Thanks! We used it often with the horses, I made sure it wasn't too tight. Just enough to stay on through her antics of trying to rip her paw off!
You're right though, many people don't understand that. We had a few problems at the barn back in the days, when the horses's owners would put it on WAY too tight. I had to go in and fix it often.

There are a couple of small dogs in the neighborhood that just snarl and snap at Buzz's face. He does not react and I think that makes their owners think it is alright. They seem to think it is cute that a 10 lb. dog is attacking a 70 lb. dog - i will never understand.
It's unfortunately very true around here. Many here are young couples, new families. The dogs are more of..... accessories. So I find that a lot of the times, the dogs don't even know "sit", let alone how to behave while out in public or on a leash. It's very typical here. Which is why I just ignore everyone and go on my way. All my dogs are very well mannered and we just keep walking while they look like idiots... but this time, not only was it my pup... but she's also a very dominant female who had another female in her face barking and snarling....... Yeah, I expected a reaction from that. Thankfully, she didn't bite or do anything stupid.. just advanced on the dog and barked back.

Lol Yeah, it was Storm's turn to look miserable... It's the most pathetic thing I've seen in a while. Thankfully, she's still her sassy self... just a little more docile now that she's figured out the cone isn't coming off. She's really playing it up though! So dramatic.
