A few years ago we rescued Maddy and Rylie, two very frightened, severely neglected, blind dachshunds, who, up till that day lived their whole life in a tiny sectioned off area of a basement.
They ate slept and soiled in this one small area …neither of them knowing the joy of constant love and human touch. Maddy and Rylie only knew fear; Fear of everything unknown. And sadly, everything was the unknown to them.
We brought them home and began the long, difficult and painful journey of their rehabilitation.
Maddy, the boy developed a festering sore on his front leg that he constantly licked and gnawed at till it was raw. He wouldn’t let anyone touch his leg long enough to treat and bandage. My kids and I had to work as a team to bandage him up while he screamed as if we were peeling off his skin, only to see him frantically tear off the bandage within minutes.
This went on for a couple of days, but the difficulty of treating and bandaging any dogs injury is an age old problem. My mind raced for a solution…and the first prototype was made.
It worked so well that I realized it was time that we had bandages designed for dogs everywhere.
