Use of Basket Muzzles
Over recent weeks, we have seen a spate of dogs that have eaten silly objects which have caused serious intestinal problems and occasionally life-‐threatening blockages necessitating major surgery.
Some of these animals have done similar things before and the owners have been aware of the risk. Sadly, sitting dogs down and trying to reason with them is unlikely to be a successful preventative measure!
If you have a dog that is a known scavenger, why not consider using a Baskerville type muzzle? These are the basket type muzzles that still allow your dog to breath naturally and to drink but will physically stop them from picking up and swallowing objects that can cause them serious harm.
As always, prevention is better than cure and we feel sure that your dog would thank you if they knew what you were trying to do, and the same goes for your bank manager!
