What is the purpose and goal of the No Flap™ Ear Wrap?

The goal of our product is to provide an alternative to sticky or escapable bandages. The No Flap™ Ear Wrap allows the ears to lie in a natural position while keeping them immobile. This also allows ease of access to the surgical site or the injury for monitoring and or applying medications during recovery.  

For dogs who have just had an invasive surgery or a severe injury to the ear flap or pinna, we suggest using the NFEW in conjunction with the e-collar until you have permission from your veterinarian to remove the e-collar. The e-collar may be necessary from a couple of days to a week. (depending on the seriousness of the surgery or injury) After the critical first days have passed, the NFEW can be worn without the e-collar. (by now the pup should be accustomed to having the wrap on his/her head)

Each wrap is designed to allow you to provide a more custom fit, (the length can be retracted) we ask that you monitor the pup to make sure you have it attached properly.

If your pup has a surgery scheduled, the best thing to do, if possible, is to get the wrap early and acclimate the pup to the NFEW, taking it on and off, rewarding the dog with praise and treats.
