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, Gabapentin, Prozac...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!!!
Abby has been able to run free and chase squirrels like she always does. The tail saver made it so she could come and go as she wished since it didn't require a person to remove clothing for potty time. Abby just loves it.
First of all I want to give 5 stars to customer service, Julie was very nice and helpful.
Happy tail injury is definitely the longest injury to have to deal with.
I have an English Mastiff that injured his tail the end of February, tried different bandaging, homemade splints, medication, and just when I thought it was healed my boy would hit his tail against something and blood everywhere again.
The middle of March he became sick from bladder stones and while he was under sedation for removal of stones, the veterinarian amputated about 1-1 1/2 inches off his tail. A few weeks went by and his tail still not fully healed.
The beginning of May I looked online and found the Tail Saver, and decided to try it out.
The Tail Saver definitely helped when people came over and when me and husband came home, and my boy would get super excited.
A had a few concerns; I felt like the padding in the sleeve wasn’t covering my dogs tail fully, so I contacted Julie and she sent me the original fully padded sleeve, and that helped. (Thank you Julie)
Second, the tail sleeve is super long and when your dogs tail is already very long, I had to watch out for things on tables and objects low to the ground. I tried the velcro at the end but his powerful tail would detached the velcro within in minutes.
Third, there were a few times where he would wag his tail super hard and his tail would come out of the sleeve. I tried the snaps but it was too tight and caused an irritant under his tail, so I stopped using the extra snap.
Lastly, the straps are hard to adjust while he was wearing it. The new tail saver sleeve straps where slicker, so I had to adjust it daily.
Overall my boy tolerate wearing the Tail Saver. He did try to rub it off by rubbing into furniture and people lol, but the extra velcro straps near the snaps helped it stay on.
I am grateful I found this product because I didn’t want additional amputation, and I wanted his tail to finally wag like it should!
Here is it the beginning of June and his tail is almost healed, so hopefully there will be an ending to it all very soon!
Thank you Tail Saver and Julie!
First I’ll start by saying the customer service is definitely 5 stars, Julie was very nice and super helpful.
I have an English Mastiff who injured his tail end of February, tried different bandaging, homemade splints, and medications; when I thought it was healed it would open back up and blood everywhere. Unfortunately my boy had some other medical concerns so when he went under for surgery to remove bladder stones, the veterinarian amputated about 1-1 1/2 inch off. A few weeks went by and still not healing.
I looked online and found this website the end of April and decided to give it a try. It’s definitely helped when people come over and when me and my husband come home, and my boy gets super excited. I was originally worried with the interior padding not covering the tip of my boys tail since that’s where the injury was, so I called Julie and she sent me the original full padded tail saver and that helped a lot more.
A few things that I had concerns with: is how long it is because when your dogs tail is already super long this makes it longer so have to watch out for things on tables or anything low, I tried the velcro but his powerful tail eventually just detached the velcro. I did have a few times where he got super excited and wagged his tail out of the sleeve, tried the additional snaps but it caused an irritant under his tail so I had to stop. Also the straps are hard to adjust while on. The new tail sleeve had to be adjusted daily because the strap material was slicker then the harness straps.
Overall my boy did great in it and tolerated it while on. He never chewed at it but did try to rub it off by rubbing into furniture and people lol but the velcro helped the snaps stay on. I’m grateful this helped.
He is still healing and here it is beginning of June (definitely the longest injury I’ve ever dealt with), hopefully the tail will be fully healed very soon.
I am glad I found this product to avoid more amputation.
Thank you Tail Saver and Julie.
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.
