Boogers!

For lack of a better word, Praline's had boogers for about a week.

I was afraid she was getting an upper respiratory infection but she's on 2 anti-biotics (and lots of pro-biotics) and has no congestion, no actual nasal discharge. Just occasional boogers.

So I was feeding her tonight and worrying (as is the norm) about her having these boogers when it hit me:

She can't wipe her nose through her collar!

Chins are ALWAYS wiping their nose ... she can't get to hers because of the e-collar. It all makes sense now! I try to keep it clean but she bites me!

Are you able to take the collar off of her and supervise her for awhile or does she immediately start chewing on her leg?

That's the problem, she won't let me! I get bitten every time I try to help her be able to breathe!

Hmm, what if you lightly wrapped the leg and then put Vicks or something on the gauze just to deter her long enough so she can have a break and wipe her nose, ect.

That's how she got in trouble in the first place. It was wrapped with Fooey or Bitter Apple on it - chewed it until she bled. Now that the wounds are healing, I'm sure it itches and that's probably why she still goes for it.

Wow! I didn't realize you had already tried that stuff on it. I had read that thread and must've missed that part. Dang! She is one determined girl!

I had a horse that liked to chew on his leg. I used that campophenique stuff (I know that isn't spelled right) and it's really strong smelling. That stopped him.

Maybe the bitter apple stuff doesn't have a smell that is offensive enough? I don't know, I've never needed to use that stuff. Sorry I can't be more helpful.
