This product is just the ticket for hard to heal tail injuries. I struggled for a month with getting a tail injury/surgery on the end of my english setters tail to heal. Cones didn't work and constantly keeping the tail covered was not allowing it to heal properly. I talked to a number of vets and there was no easy solution. Then I found this product online. After a couple days the tail looked way better and the dog adjusted to wearing it. A great product that all vet clinics should either carry or recommend. Thank you!
Working just fine on my Irish Wolfhound:). Thank you!
I read instructions and watched the video. Relatively easy to use. Applied harness and let him acclimate to it. Then put on the tail saver after 1/2 hour he was snoring...
Product was great! Unfortunately my sweet pups tail was too far gone and he had to get it amputated. Customer service was great however!!
Well constructed device, it worked as advertised. After spending 10 minutes reviewing the instructions, I placed the dog on the grooming table and had no issues installing the device. I have a long haired dog (Setter), and I had issues with hair mats on the chest area and in the arm pits.
Our 14 year old Standard Poodle had her tail docked to a 4 inch length due to a growth on the tail. After surgery it was impossible to keep her from licking and chewing the surgical area. We tried 4 different e collars and actually used two at once on her. Nothing worked! After a second surgery to repair the damage she had done we ordered the Tailsaver. Once the tailsaver was in place she immediately began ignoring her tail. She is not bothered one bit by the harness, tail sleeve or straps and despite one incident of chewing when left in her crate the tail saver works great. The customization and customer service by Julie is beyond what we expected and we would highly recommend the tailsaver .
This has been this missing key. My dog had an injury on the tip of her tail that required stitches. I had no idea how I was going to be able to keep her tail wrapped, and immobile long enough for it to heal. With the TailSaver, it was so easy. It was exactly what we needed to get out girl back to her happy self. Thank you!
My rescue Sprocker came to us with a bald repeatedly bleeding tail tip. I had been told by the vet it was likely it would need an operation to reduce the tail length as it was unlikely to resolve. As a last resort before surgery I decided to try the Tail saver, it was It seemed expensive but I guessed cheaper than an operation!
I used it when my dog was indoors/confined areas where most tail whacking damage occurred, I found the contraption easy to fit and hilarious to see on my dog tbh! He is an excitable youngster but didn't try to pull off, chew or displace the funky outfit. In fact he seemed quite comfy in it and would even do his wee's and poo's without issue. With regular wear his fur started to grow back and now 8 months later he has a full non-bleeding tail which can wag freely even indoors as the skin has healed completely. Thank you so much from Monty the Sprocker Spaniel who remains whole tailed!
Tailsaver was a bit of a challenge when first putting it on... directions are pretty good . After that putting it back on once you know where the straps attach , and they are adjusted correctly went on easily. Our Ridgeback is a very deep chested breed and if I have any concerns is a little more adjustment on these straps might make the harness a bit more comfortable
Hi, Sully is doing great with the tail saver, he was a little skeptical for a day or so, but has since become quite comfortable with it being on! His tail is showing signs of improvement only after a week of use! I would recommend this option before going to the extremes of surgery! I’ll do an update and another review in the upcoming weeks! Thanks again
My 13 yr old dog got happy tail and unfortunately we did not come across this tail protector in time. It would not heal and she ended up removing 3” of her tail while we were out one night. That’s when I came across this, it was a lifesaver while awaiting her partial tail amputation surgery to remove the exposed bone. She was unable to lick or chew at her tail, prevented her from being in further pain when still hitting her tail on the walls, and helped her heal post surgery. It was easy enough to figure out and my dog was not bothered by wearing it all the time.
Works great but make sure to read all the directions very carefully. Have to do it correctly or it will not work. But once you’ve got it it’s a lifesaver. Dog got used to it after wearing it for a bit. Doesn’t seem bothered by it.
A little complicated to apply. Must follow the directions. But the good news is it worked.! After just 2 days, the tail scabbed enough I could remove the tailsaver and the scab did not reopen even when she wagged her tail. For 7 weeks, my pup had this wound on the tip of her curled up tail and in 2 days with the Tailsaver on, it healed
My dog has suffered from happy tail for many years but 3 weeks ago it got very bad and the vet was saying if I didn't get it healed we would amputate. Fast forward a week, I had gotten the harness and went in for another check and the vet said they would give me another week to see if I could get it healed. So.. after another week of tail saving wearing and doctoring it, we went to the vet this morning fully expecting an amputation but the vet was super excited and said it was healing so to continue doctoring and wearing the tail saver and she will keep her tail! THANK YOU FOR SAVING HER TAIL!!!
Well-made, well thought out, fast shipping...We just were late in finding out about it. By the time we got our hands on it our pup needed surgery. But had we known about this sooner it likely would've saved her tail. I wish more vets knew about it and were able to show/educate patients on its use. Seamless returns process in case it doesn't work. Really you have nothing to lose by trying it.
Unfortunately - two hours of unsupervised attention and he had all the straps bit to pieces. We have ordered another one that he will wear with a cone!! We think the tail sleeve is wonderful however!!
I am so happy to have found this product. I knew, from past incidents, that getting our dog's happy tail to heal was going to be a long hard process. My dog's tail goes constantly & hits everything like a hard rope. It was not difficult to put together & on our dog & he accepted it with no problem. He's healing & I'm confident his tail will be fine. Thank you, thank you, thank you for your creation.
It is a little difficult to set up, but once on, it seems to be working. My dog is a little bewildered by it, but doesn't seem to be chewing it or his tail. I am only a couple of days in, but so far so good.
The tail saver was awesome for my pup. She got used to it pretty quickly. Her tail healed up in a week. I kept the tail saver on for another 2 weeks. Now I'm glad I have it in case of future injury.
I used the wag strap for a couple days. My dog acted as if it was really confining her movements, so I took it off, and she did just fine without it. Also, the velcro strap hit her tail at a weird place, and was causing irritation, so I stopped using it. It stayed in place without the velcro strap and wag strap, and she healed up well. I would recommend this product to others.
We were at a loss before we found this product. Our dog’s tail, which had initially just had a tiny cut, had become infected and was failing to heal. We had tried bigger and bigger cones as well as wrapping her tail in pipe insulation to no avail and we were becoming resigned to the possibility that her tail would have to be amputated. Fortunately, this product worked perfectly. Although she found it uncomfortable at first, she quickly got used to it and was able to play, pee, and poop with it on (and without getting it dirty). Her tail is now healed. Thank you so much!!
This is a game changer…..my boy has the happiest of tails leading to much bloodshed….just got our tail saver and what a relief , no more wacking the tail on his crate in the car, and he’s still able to move freely
Once it’s fitted, it’s easy on and off
Absolutely love this product. It arrived from America quickly but took 12 days to clear customs. 3 days of use and tail has dried up beautifully, it definitely beats using large buster collars and he was still able to get to end of tail. I sent dogs measurements, it fits perfectly but does need practice to fit on dog and took two of us. I’m so thrilled with product and I have a much happier dog. Thank you
Good quality. Difficult to put on.
Our 10 month old Lab mix chewed through a vital strap the first day it was on. When I called the customer service number listed the phone was answered immediately. By a REAL person! She was very helpful in getting a replacement shipped quickly for literally shipping charges only and chock full of helpful tips to help our puppy adjust to wearing the tail-saver. That first day was wonderful! No more bloody tail swish marks on the wall. If we can just get him used to it, I’m sure we’ve found our solution! Overall I am very satisfied with the company as a whole.
it works well and all however my dog figured out how to wiggle her back to get her tail out of it several times which caused me to have to make it tighter than I had liked. I had to also tape up the excess tail covering as it was dragging on the ground. I qould also like to recommend some type of padding on the waiste strap. I have a pitbull mix and she has almost bare skin there which caused some irritation. great job with the idea tho!
