no she is a bitch keeps taking them off we have tried to close it with a bandaid and put a bandage on her but keeps pulling off bandage thort of putting a bodysuit on her lol xx

Thought so

This is going to be really tough one to manage

If I was there I would have the incision stapled shut- they cant pull out staples so easily

Bandage is not going to work

What about head collar?
