    how to stop dog licking sore- Update, finally healed 7th Jun 08 at 11:06 AM
    any tips please.
    Jess my 5 1/2 year old dog has just had her third op on her knee in 5 months, now she seems to ignore the major wound (i keep it covered and am changing the dressing daily), but will not stop licking the place on her front leg where the IV line was in. Last time she licked it so much she removed a layer of skin, and i think it is going the same way this time,

    i have tried putting a sock over it and covering it with a bandage but she pulls them off. I am starting the think i may have to put a plastic head collar on her, but don't want to because shes unhappy enough as it is.

    Any suggestions folks of anything that i could do to discourage her
