    Hi Betty, sorry to hear about your fur baby scratching her sore. Lots of pool noodle have holes in the center so you can just cut it to fit around your doggy's neck and thread a piece of fabric through the hole and tie it on. Best of luck. I hope she gets better soon

    Look to source of problem. Both my brother an di have given Fish oil to our dogs, and it stops this problem. A large dog over 75 pounds, I give 1 capsule, 3 times a week. I have to squeeze it on her food. They stop scratching, digging and biting. But check with your vet.

    Betty...Have you seen a Vet? My sis in law has an indoor dog that had a sore and kept scratching so she put a light weight sweater on him and it is healing nicely. Good luck

  • First call the vet and get appropriate medication. They have inflatable collars at the pet store if your vet charges too much for them. Another option is to wrap their collar in old t shirt material.

    Hi Betty, depending on the size of a dog actually a cowboy hat will work. I know that sounds hilarious but you can cut the top part of the hat off and slip it on and it actually works just fine.
