This product WORKS! Our dog never minded it one bit, tail healed quickly thanks to this harness. Thank u soooooo much!!!
First, let me say that this product has absolutely been amazing for my pup. Before coming across this product I had tried liquid bandage, vet tape, all sorts of sprays, etc. I have nothing but amazing things to say about this product. My pups tail is now almost healed and I cannot be any more grateful for this product. Not only is the product amazing but the customer service I have received has been the best of any company I have ever dealt with. It started before I ever even received my product. Julie reached out to me shortly after I placed my order because the carrier would not have been able to deliver on time. She offered to upgrade my shipping at no cost so that I could get my product as soon as possible which I was extremely grateful for. Fast forward some time as I have now had the tailsaver for a few weeks and been using it on my 8 month old pitbull. My pup snapped one of the jawclips and I reached out to Julie to see if there were any replacement straps that I could purchase. (I don't feel that this has anything to do with the product itself. It is a very well made product. I do have a pitbull and they are very strong dogs!) She offered to send me straps that were stronger and would work better for the kind of pup I have, AT NO COST! I am blown away by the kindness I have received from this company since day one.
Our lab mix Baylee had a great day at the creek. She waded, swam, and splashed around!! This creek has many springs in it so it in some places the water is very cold! That would feel good on a hot day!! She was pooped when we left the farm and came home. She was so sandy and muddy, she needed to be sprayed off before going in the house. That night we knew she was tired. But even a couple of days later she wasn’t herself. Her tail hung down and she wouldn’t wag it. She wanted out, then in. She went back and forth too much. We decided she was in pain and called the vet! Probably a strained muscle. So we gave children’s liquid ibuprofen and she did act some better. But still wouldn’t wag her tail. I got on line and discovered swimmer’s tail and even cold water tail. Had never heard of that before!! They use their tails like a rudder and can over use it. This described her perfectly. So before we knew it she had started licking a spot on her tail and nibbling it probably because her tail hurt!! We tried bitter taste wrapping, pool noodle, bitter spray, and all the rest. She was making it bigger and bleeding. We tried a muzzle and a cone!! They barely slowed her down. Then we got the inflation collar! It did work pretty good but she could even get to her tail with that on!! She would stop licking when we caught her, but out of our sight was a different story. We continued to wrap it and the vet had given a steroid shot and antibiotics that we were giving by mouth. Got on the web again and found Happy Tail, which we had tried to make on our own with, straps and belts and denim.
She’s wearing it tonight and we actually think we can save her tail and our lives too. We got so tired of trying to figure out a plan!!
This is well made and you can tell a lot of thought went into this gear!! It sure gives us hope for saving her tail. Wish we could have saved all the money and time we wasted on things that didn’t work!! She is calm and wearing it just fine.
We haven’t had to use it yet. Her tail was already healed by the time we got it. If she has it happen again we will definitely be using it and I will leave a review at that time!
My dog went home with a giant cone after a visit from the vet for a tail injury. After hours of my dog standing in one place and panting/shaking so hard she was just exhausted. I knew I had to find some other way of protecting the wound. I tried wrapping it gently with no chew wrap though after a little while, it would just fall off. Then I found the Tail Saver after doing an internet search. This thing has seriously been a lifesaver from the minute I put it on my dog. It takes a while to figure out all the adjustments but once you have it fitted, it’s super easy to maintain. My dog is able to eat/drink, lay down and go potty without any trouble. The only reason I gave it four stars instead of five is that the universal strap doesn’t always stay clipped and since my dog has a tail that curls upwards, the tail sleeve just comes right off if that strap is not secure. Otherwise, this thing is an amazing invention for protecting tails. Her injury is definitely beginning to resolve and it’s all because of this device. I’m super thankful it’s out there! And the customer service is superb!
I am incredibly happy that I purchased the tail saver! My older Lab was losing the hair on his tail from a thyroid issue and made it vulnerable to happy tail. I was so concerned that he'd have to lose his tail, as was the vet. I ordered this product out of desperation and I am SO glad I did. He has been wearing the tail saver long term as the tail has healed and we wait for the hair to grow back now that he's on the correct medication dosage. The customer service has been amazing; they worked with me to identify the best fit for my boy and even offered alternative solutions for me at NO cost. I sized up from a L to XL since he is a large English Lab and it fits like a charm. He can wear it fairly long term with no discomfort and most importantly it saved his tail. Highly highly recommend!
Great idea and item. Easy to do and works well
The only thing better than this product is the costumer service you receive. Both are A++ and will definitely recommend to anyone looking for an alternative to the cone of shame.
We have a Great Dane and she has a happy tail we tried a lot of different products nothing worked our vet recommended this and we couldn’t be happier it’s been keeping her tail safe and it’s been healing. I love this product.
We have a greyhound with a happy tail injury. It has been a team effort and great customer service to help us get the right size and fit to keep his tail covered and immobilized while it heals. Julie has gone above and beyond. We are very grateful for her help!
This has been a life saver. His tail is finally starting to heal. Thank you so much for taking the time to talk with me. The clips are working way better than the buttons. The tail saver is genius!
This tail saver is amazing. Can’t wait for her tail to heal. Thank you so much.
I was sceptical at first ordering to the UK, after ordering the K9 TailSaver at 6pm UK time I was amazed to receive the product 36hrs later on the Wednesday morning, this was thanks to a free delivery upgrade and great customer support, the TailSaver was simple to set up and I have noticed an instant drop in excessive tail wagging, with the covering and padding now around his wound on the end of his tail, he is no longer able to lick and chew at it, giving his tail time to heal now, I have bandaged and wrapped his tail in the past, had vets do the same at ridiculous prices only for them to be whipped off, chewed off or get completely wet through, this TailSaver has stopped this instantly, my only regret is that I didn’t come across this product earlier saving hundreds in wasted vet costs.
I love this product. I gave it 5 stars but it would be easier to use with an improvement. My dog has a very long and furry tail and the tail guard is hard to get on. It might be improved with an opening seam on part of the cover. Otherwise it is a great product and has helped my dogs tail heal without a cone!
I just got it today & adjusted everything, so far she's tolerating it well. I think it will do the trick! & her tail won't rub inside it, wich was a concern.
My Shepard has anxiety separation issues and this is saving her beautiful tail.
Fantastic customer service. We placed our order on Friday the 7th, got a call later that evening to get clarifying info, and was told it would be mailed out in the morning. Today, we received the order. Will see how it fits when I get home from work tonight. Patty Storkel
Never tried KN95’s before and didn’t know what to expect. These masks are nice and thick. Very importantly: they passed the “fit test” in which one puts the mask on and exhales strongly - If any air comes out the sides of the respirator, it means it doesn’t fit correctly.
With these KN95’s, no air leaked at all! It also passes the “flame test,” I couldn’t blow out a lighter flame when wearing this mask and blowing out as hard as I can.
The benefit of these compared to a surgical/procedure mask is that you have a tighter seal and coverage around the sides of your face and chin. 3 ply procedure masks work great and are admittedly a bit more comfortable, but I love these KN95’s and have re-ordered them. With no vaccine anytime soon, these are a must when out shopping, on public transit, etc. Protects you and others!
Shipping was fast and the only hiccup was caused by the post office after a holiday, they fixed it the next day and all is good!
Thank you very much Julie!
The K9 tailsaver is a godsend for us. We have tried everything to get our Lucky to stop chewing his tail raw. Cones, bandaids, bitter apple spray, anti-anxiety medications,...we were even considering amputating...& then we got the tail saver. His tail is no longer raw and is healing pleasantly! THANK YOU SO MUCH for designing this product and making it available to pet parents in need! We can't thank you enough!
The night before Coco’s surgery to remove her tail, I searched once again for an alternative solution and found the tail saver. We had tried everything and her tail was in terrible shape. After reading the testimonials, I ordered the tail saver and called the vet the next morning to cancel the surgery. After using the tail saver for a few months, Coco’s tail was saved! While the tail saver took some getting used to - Coco was not thrilled to have it on - the product was worth it. I highly recommend trying the tail saver.
We love our tailsaver harness!! It saved our pups tail from being amputated! Who knew a tiny cut on the tip of her tail would have been such a nightmare. We were literally getting amputation quotes from the vet the same day we ordered the harness- we were out of options- and thank goodness found the TailSaver online! It has kept her away from her tail long enough for the lesion to heal well enough that it doesn’t have to be wrapped! She’s one happy pup without all the tape and gauze causing her to itch. The customer service that this company offers is second to none, and beyond helpful! They sent ointment for our pup and even shipped over the weekend because she knew the severity of our case! Will 100% recommend to anyone! We’ve even been talking our vet to look into getting them for situations like these! WE ARE SO THANKFUL FOR THE TAILSAVER!!
After a 10 day stay in kennel, my Doberman, Ace, developed a terrible case of Happy Tail. For eight months i have tried in vain to heal the wound. If I was lucky I could keep the tail bandaged a couple days before it came off. I even tried a cage muzzle with extra wire reinforcement to keep him from getting at tail but he'd find a way. I was cleaning blood off the walls floor and ceiling on a regular basis and it was making me absolutely nuts. Ace also developed a bad habit of eating the bandages from his tail which resulted in intestinal obstruction! Thankfully I found K9 TailSaver just days before he had surgery. When intestinal obstruction was removed I had vet address the tail surgically. Ace has worn the K9 TailSaver ever since surgery and it's been almost three weeks and his tail is doing fantastic. No more swallowed bandages, he runs around the yard doing all his regular activities and doesn't mind TailSaver one bit. Surgeon said tail is healing great. I can't say enough how great this product is. I wish we found it earlier but better late than never. I seriously don't know what I'd have done if I had not found K9 TailSaver. THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!
