Does anyone have any ideas?? My dog chewed his ankle through his flesh and down to bone from a scab he had after sugery 4 weeks ago.He was able to get his e-collar off. Luckliy, he just needed stiches and nothing worse. Since then we have 2 e-collars together to double the strength, his leg bandaged and him on sedatives at the vets advice. For the past 4 week it has been healing VERY slowly. Since it can't get air to it. My poor dog has been wearing the e-collar for almost 9 weeks now, but its better then him chewing his leg again. Well today I caught my dog chewing his ankle AGAIN. He managed to find a way to bend backwards, get his bandage off and chew his leg. Thank God he didn't chew through his flesh this time. What can I do so he can not get to his ankle. I am so worried! Why are shepherds so Head strong and smart????? Thanks!
