Here are some general tips when using a protective sac for your downed doxie:
- Hygiene is key for the IVDD dachshund and for the doxie's sac too. Plan on having several on hand as this item will spend a lot of time in the washer. Clean, clean, clean; it is key.
- Always look for pressure sores and scrapes, even when using a protective sac. Remember, doxies, even those with the power of only two legs, want to run, run, run. They may not feel changing surfaces and can injure themselves unintentionally. Inspect, don't expect!
The folks at K9-Karts make a great protective sac. Please click on the icon to the icon below or the link in this paragraph to learn more.
