So my dog has been having issues with chewing her tail. She did this years ago, and the only way to stop her was to make her wear an e-collar for a couple months. She had to wear the HUGE size or else she could get the tail around the side of it and still chew it. She stopped chewing her tail for years and then decided to start up again a couple years ago, and it's driving me nuts. I tried the big e-collar again, but it was soooo big that she ended up falling out of the bed one night. She is 13 now and has back problems, so I'm worried that will happen again. Her disk problem flared up when she fell and it was awful. So as a last resort before having her tail completely amputated (which she will end up doing herself if this doesn't stop) the vet told me to try this new puffy collar. It looks like one of those whiplash things people wear after an accident. I had to take her LV collar off and put this on, but she's doing pretty well with it and it seems to keep her from being able to get to her tail. She can still eat and drink with it on though which was another problem with the e-collar. So here are some pics of my baby with her new collar. Please keep your fingers crossed for us that this will actually work.
