DIY: Donna Hill's Tip for Leg Wraps to Prevent Licking and Chewing of Wounds on Front Legs

With JD, we managed with a bottomless sock. I think it worked about as well as anything else. We used vet wrap to hold it in place. More on JD's wound care here.

Cone of shame was a complete fail with JD, not just because he hated it
but also because the wound is so far down he could just stick his leg into the cone.
For his wound, cut-off top part of a sock worked just fine.

Donna's solution is awesome too, though, and her video includes techniques of getting your dog used to the idea. We considered similar idea as well but since the sock was doing the job, we stuck with that solution.
