K9 TailSaver™ by Happy Tail Saver
Dogs with a bleeding tail tip heal quickly while wearing the effective TailSaver®. Whether the tail injury is from Happy Tail Syndrome, Post Surgery, or accidental cut you'll want to protect it from their own wound licking.
It includes 2 parts: a loose fitting protective tail-sleeve, which will not come off or allow wound licking and a special harness for keeping it in place. Adjustable straps provide the tension needed to keep it on any dog, even the most active. The wound stays clean and ointments on, it doesn't trigger chewing, and you can check the tail tip easily. Your dog can go outside to go potty, or into a crate to sleep - it's designed for constant wear while the tail heals. Then you'll leave it off unless their's a re-injury to tail.

Misty's Happy Tail
Misty broke open the tip of her tail with her exuberant wagging, splattering blood on the walls all around the house. We spent a lot of time and money at the veterinarians office trying to get her tail healed. We tried a cone, sedation, various bandages, and even a muzzle. We had the injury scraped, lasered, and removed the last 2 bones in her tail. We were facing an expensive amputation surgery with it's own set of risks.
We began experimenting with different designs, sometimes multiple experiments per day, to save her tail. It was both sad and funny how fast she could remove our bandages and clothing, but with luck and determination we discovered a way to keep her tail covered. From the first day with our TailSaver® design, featured here on this website, there was no more licking or biting at her tail, and she couldn't remove it. In one week the wound had skinned over and within a month she was healed. We occasionally still need to use it but within a week she's healed.
Save your dog and yourself the expense and stress we went through, the K9 TailSaver® works and will help your dog. Try it risk-free.
Best thing I have ever found and ordered online. My husband and I had just moved into our new home, and 2 days later my 8 year old pit mix is spraying blood everywhere when she wagged her tail. I had never heard of happy tail, but after 3 days of my house looking like a crime scene, I placed my order. I had it sent overnight, it shipped the same day I placed my order, and by noon the next day my girl was wearing her tail saver. I left it on for 17 days, and she is healed and so far blood free.
I am a companion animal veterinarian - my own dog has an unusual dermatological condition which results in development in sebaceous cysts over her body which rupture and can then become infected through self trauma. Queenie had a ruptured cyst right at her tail base and we were at our wits end on how to prevent her from licking at the area - it had become very large and ulcerated. The traditional E-Collars, although effective are not comfortable and are inconvenient inside. The Tail Saver, although not used in the traditional sense has been absolutely fantastic and it has allowed the wound to heal up beautifully.
My only comment is the cost of international postage as I am from Australia - it is a product that I would like to endorse in Australia, however, based on the cost of freight, it did make it not overly economical unfortunately. I also attempted to make contact with the TailSaver Team with some questions and did not receive a response which was disappointing.
Overall, a very positive result.
The tail saver is a life saver. We have a young pup who was playing with her older sister and nipped her tail and we had blood on every wall. With the tail saver we are able to have Pip in and no mess. Thanks for your invention..
Thanks so much! We are 100% pleased with our Happy Tail Saver and the personal service! Thank you Julie!
Our dog had licked a spot on her tail to the point that it was raw. The vet gave us some powder for it, but said it shouldn't be bandaged. The only way we had to keep her from getting to it was the cone, but that is always something we want to avoid. After searching on-line, I found the tail saver and ordered it immediately after reading the reviews. This worked out perfectly and was exactly what we needed. Our dog was completely unphased by the harness and cover and the K9 Tail Saver allowed her tail to heal with no stress to our dog and no worries to us. Highly recommend it!
Our large Pitbull mix would get super excited and hit his tail on everything. There was blood everywhere in the kitchen. Looked like a murder scene. We had a struggle getting him to sit still the first couple of times putting it on. But once we figured it out he left it alone. He would slip out of the tail if he got rowdy playing, but most of the time it stays on. Looks crazy,but it works. Don’t hesitate to call. They can help you solve any issues like this. Excellent customer support. Happy his tail is healed now. Thank you Happytailsaver.
Day 2 and we're off and running. Bella has been suffering with HTS for 2 months, we had 8 weeks of bandages, tape, cutting fur, 4 "cones of shame" and then healed a bit and whacked it open two days later... not enough time to heal. The Vet said if it keeps happening we have to think about amputation...I said to my husband "No way, we have to do what it takes" then I found this site and finally have HOPE!
We had been looking for a product to help our pitbull, Luna, who's tail swings with a ton of force and hits everything in its path since she is such a happy dog and shows it with her tail. The tailsaver was a great investment and the hair on her tail is even starting to grow back! Occasionally she will try to take it off by rubbing against the wall but even with some persistence the tailsaver prevails. Thank you for making a product that has protected her tail and was what we'd been looking for.
I had a few issues with the tail slipping out If my dog raised his tail high. I left a voicemail with the owner of the company, Julie and within 24 hours she had called me back and helped diagnose/solve the issue. Additionally, she overnighted me other products (tail sleeve and clips) for free. Julie really cares about your dog. You can tell shes not here to male a profit.
Although we are not 100% healed we are well on our way. Thank you Julie for your creative design to helping us save our dogs tails from amputation.
As you can see Boaz sleeps comfortably in his harness and tail sleeve.
After our first incident with happy tail syndrome, we tried everything to prevent blood from getting everywhere. Bandages, no matter how much tape we used, did not stick. That’s when we found out about Happy Tail Saver.
Shipping was quick. There was an issue where two of the same straps were sent. I emailed the company and was immediately sent the missing strap. The reps at the company are extremely hospitable and quick with responses.
Our dog doesn’t like wearing this. He treats it very much like a cone of shame. The harness straps tend to loosen after a while so they need readjusting at times. And the whole get up is a little ridiculous looking. We took him on one walk with it and got a lot of stares.
The sleeve that you roll up does not stay rolled up if our dog shakes his tail. I might use a safety pin to keep it from unrolling.
Despite these gripes, the contraption WORKS!! The tail sleeve does what it needs to do. It prevents blood from going all over the place and stops our dog from licking which allows the wound to heal.
