We've been struggling with a hot spot on my dog's tail for two weeks. Despite antibiotics, steroids, an allergy shot and 2 different cones of shame - he was still getting at it and it wasn't healing. He's comfortably worn the TailSaver now for 3 days and it's healing up beautifully. Well worth the money! And I'm sure we'll put it to good use again next allergy season. For reference - we have an 80 lb Bernese Mountain Dog / Poodle mix and the Large Long fit perfect. Thank you!!
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
