For those interested in our product,

As you well know our pets become a very integral part of our families and in some cases many of us tend to humanize them. This is not always a bad thing. Many dog owners will actively dress them in the latest canine fashion, spoil them with lots of toys and treats etc. (I myself am guilty as charged)

When parenting either a human baby or a furry baby, the worst thing that can happen is an injury requiring medical attention and aftercare. As humans we hate seeing pain or suffering of any kind when it comes to our family members, especially our children. It is hard to see them struggle to remove the protection applied by the doctor, pace nervously, whimper and cry, struggle to eat and drink and in some cases slow way down in normal activity and personality due to sedatives to prevent all of the above.

In some extreme cases, owners of the furry babies will actively remove all protections at the slightest protest made by their babies. These are the clients we as well as yourselves will see and hear from too many times. We actively try to assuage these customers with educating them to the fact that if the ear is set free based on a couple of days of complaining by the patient, the damage may increase ten fold requiring more invasive actions. We explain that eventually (usually 2-3 days) the pup will acclimate to the wearing of some gentle head gear and get about his or her normal activity. I often wonder if " Munchausen by proxy" can apply to dog owners. Hahaha 

We cater to a large number of customers with older pups that have a health risk as far as being surgically treated. 

If you are curious as to how No Flap Ear Wrap will help your patients here is some information that might help you.

Our wrap is designed with a skeletal structure sewn in place to prevent sliding back and exposing the ear.

As always, we tell our customers to follow their Veterinarian's orders first and foremost. 

The E collar may be a necessary adjunct due to the severity of the injury or surgery but the NFEW can also be worn in conjunction with the cone. In many cases the cone can be avoided altogether.

What the NFEW does for your patients:

  • Allows the pinna to remain in a natural position
  • It fits snug but not as tight as a tape and gauze wrapped head allowing for natural hearing as the damaged ear is not taped shut. It also allows a normal field of vision with no obstruction to the periphery.
  • Ease of access to the wound or surgical site for rechecks, applying topical meds etc.
  • No sticky tape resulting in fur loss when having to remove it to check the site.
  • Helps maintain calm vs the nervousness created by the E collar for both the dog and the owner. 
  • Each wrap has the potential to fit three different head and neck sizes. Some dogs have a larger girth to the face and neck but a shorter length. The wrap is designed with 5" of play around the collar and face and 2" in length. It can be custom fit to each individual dog. 

Fabric choices depend on the dogs temperament and age. For example:

  • Denim is suggested for the younger dogs or dogs that are very active outdoors. It is our most durable fabric. The younger dogs will actively try to escape anything on their heads for a longer period of time.
  • Jersey knit is a good choice for most dogs as it has more stretch and has a soft absorbing lining for the injuries that may seep for a longer time period

As always we invite you to our FAQ on this website. We also encourage you to visit our Facebook page linked to this website where we have customer feedback that includes Veterinarians, Vet Technicians, and everyday customers. Please make sure to see our picture gallery, watch our videos and keep scrolling down to find the stories that our customers send in regularly.

  • My Great Dane has a hemotoba on his ear flap. It’s too small for a drain. Will wearing this help the hematoba and how long should he wear it daily?
