Socking a dog’s head

podcast,pod cast,erik johnson podcast
This is variably successful: some dogs just won’t leave a sock on their head. So sometimes you have to use a sock along with a cone. Other times you can secure it with some tape. Other times, you don’t have to. In any event, depending on the size of the sock and the size of the dogs head, it can be a very effective way of holding the ears down so that they can’t be shaken to further damage.
